Michael Beasley started vs. the Celtics on Wednesday and scored 15 points on 7-of-17 shooting.
To the surprise of no one, Beasley led the Bucks in shot attempts with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton, Matthew Dellavedova and Tony Snell resting up for the postseason. Beasley logged 35 minutes on the night and came through for his DFS owners, racking up five rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks. He's averaging just 15.6 minutes per game in his reserve role for Milwaukee, so he's not someone you can trust when the Bucks are at full strength. Apr 12 - 11:22 PM

Date:

Michael Beasley will start for the Bucks on Wednesday, alongside Malcolm Brogdon, Rashad Vaughn, Thon Maker and John Henson.

The Bucks are resting all of their key guys with their playoff spot locked in place. Brogdon, Beasley and Greg Monroe should account for the lion's share of Milwaukee's offense tonight.
Apr 12 - 7:15 PM

Michael Beasley scored seven points and grabbed four boards in seven minutes in his return to the Bucks lineup in Friday's win over the Pistons.

Beasley had missed Milwaukee's previous 17 games due to his hyperextended knee. He was expected to be a 15-minute limit, but Beas ended up playing just seven total minutes. He will likely stay around that 15-minute cap for the next few games, as the Bucks want to make sure he is healthy for the postseason. Thus, he can't be trusted for fantasy purposes.

Michael Beasley (knee) is expected to be on a 15-minute limit against the Pistons on Friday.

There should be some minutes available with Malcolm Brogdon (back) out and how the Bucks have so many multi-position players. Still, fantasy owners can't trust Beasley in almost any situation right now.
Mar 31 - 6:30 PM

Michael Beasley (knee) is available to play against the Pistons on Friday.

He's missed the last 17 games due to his hyperextended knee. The Bucks seem to have found a good rotation since Beasley went down with more Giannis Antetokounmpo as a power forward, but they may have to shift some guys around with no Malcolm Brogdon (back) today. Still, it's tough to trust Beasley to get noteworthy minutes in his first game back.
Mar 31 - 2:23 PM

Michael Beasley (left knee) could resume practicing next week, according to coach Jason Kidd.

Beasley has "made progress" while the Bucks were away on an extended road trip, and the "plan" is to have him playing before the end of the regular season. That would be great news for the Bucks' depth, but it's unlikely to impact many fantasy rosters.
Mar 26 - 2:42 PM

Michael Beasley (left knee) is not expected to travel with the Bucks on their road trip.

That would mean that Beasley would miss at least the next six games. Based on this timetable, the earliest we would see Beasley back in action is on Mar. 24 vs. the Hawks. In the meantime, we could continue to see more two-center lineups with John Henson seeing increased run in the second unit.
Mar 12 - 10:41 AM

Bucks head coach Jason Kidd said that Michael Beasley (left knee) will miss at least another two weeks of action.

Beasley is going to be re-evaluated at the end of this two-week timetable, but that doesn't mean that he'll immediately be cleared to return to the court. Beasley was playing well prior to going down, but given that he'll likely be brought along slowly once he is eventually cleared to play, there's not much incentive to hang onto him in most leagues. Newcomer Terrence Jones is expected to help fill the void, along with Mirza Teletovic and Greg Monroe. If you want to take a flier on TJ, it makes a lot of sense.

Michael Beasley (hyperextended left knee) will miss at least the next three games for the Bucks.

An MRI revealed that Beasley is dealing with nothing more than a hyperextended knee, which is good news considered how bad the injury looked on Monday. With Beasley out, the Bucks will lean more heavily on guys like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, and there could be some minutes available for John Henson and Mirza Teletovic.

Michael Beasley (knee) left the locker room on crutches Monday night and is scheduled to have tests done on the knee Tuesday in Milwaukee.

Beasley hurt his left knee in the second quarter and it appeared to be a serious injury, with Beasley's knee buckling and him immediately signaling for help. For what it's worth, Matthew Dellavedova said: "He seemed in pretty good spirits when we got back here. I think he'll be OK. We'll see." We will pass along an update as soon as one is provided. Khris Middleton and Mirza Teletovic will receive a fantasy boost if Beasley misses time.
Feb 28 - 10:05 AM

Michael Beasley suffered a left knee sprain on Monday vs. the Cavs and will not return.

The Bucks initially called Jabari Parker's injury a knee sprain, so Beasley isn't out of the woods yet and will likely have additional tests. He was in obvious pain and could only put a little bit of weight on his leg as his teammates helped him back to the locker room. He finished with 11 points in nine minutes. Mirza Teletovic will get a short-term boost with Khris Middleton resting tonight.
Feb 27 - 8:08 PM

Michael Beasley injured his left knee on Monday vs. the Cavaliers and went back to the locker room.

It didn't look good at all and his teammates had to carry him to the locker room. The Bucks will have an update shortly, but we'd be surprised if his night wasn't done. Khris Middleton is being rested, so we could see more of Mirza Teletovic and Tony Snell tonight.
Feb 27 - 7:53 PM

Michael Beasley will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Cavs, with Khris Middleton (rest) unavailable.

This was the expected move, and Beasley could be flirting with minutes in the 30s tonight. He's been scoring very efficiently lately, so he could be worth a look as a streamer, although with a tough matchup in what will likely be a down-tempo game he isn't the best DFS target.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: While the Cavs aren't a very fast paced team - they rank about league average - they do sit in 20th in defensive efficiency this year, and Beasley should have a nice advantage offensively over the Cavs PFs. The Cavs do rank 4th in DvP against PFs, but Channing Frye profiles as a nice match-up for Beasley with a -0.93 DRPM. If he's able to crack 30 minutes on the floor, Beasley has a nice shot at hitting GPP value at his current asking price.
Feb 27 - 6:02 PM

Michael Beasley scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 23 minutes off the bench.

Khris Middleton replaced Beasley in the starting five for Sunday's game, but Middleton will be rested on Monday, meaning Beasley has a good chance of returning to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Cleveland. However, Beasley doesn't do much aside from score, so he's not necessarily a "must-own" guy in standard leagues.
Feb 26 - 7:41 PM

Michael Beasley will come off the bench on Sunday vs. the Suns.

Beasley scored 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting in his last game, but the Bucks are going to move Khris Middleton into the first unit and that move will more than likely stick. Beasley could draw another start on Monday vs. the Cavaliers if Middleton is rested on the second night of a back-to-back set, so his owners might as well stick with him for at least the next two games.
