Beasley (elbow) returned to practice on Monday, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Beasley missed the Bucks' final two preseason games while working back from a right elbow injury, but his availability for Monday's practice seems to indicate he's back to full strength. As long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks over the next few days, look for him to be in the lineup for Wednesday's regular season opener against the Hornets. It's still questionable how big of a role Beasley will have this season, but at the very least, he's supposed to operate as another scoring option off the bench.
Beasley (elbow) has been ruled out of Wednesday's preseason finale against the Pacers, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It's the second consecutive game Beasley will miss, as he continues to work his way back from an elbow injury. Beasley is expected to provide another scoring option off the bench once the regular season is here, but his first priority is to get himself back to full strength and he'll have one week to do that prior to the regular season opener on Oct. 26 against the Hornets.
Beasley didn't play in Monday's 102-78 preseason loss to the Pistons due to a right elbow injury, BrewHoop.com's Eric Nehm reports.
Beasley had played in the Bucks' preceding game Saturday against the Bulls, so it seems likely he may have picked up the injury in that contest. Since the injury was unreported heading into Monday's contest, it's likely not a major issue, and Beasley is expected to be healthy for the start of the regular season. He'll offer the Bucks some scoring off the bench, though it's not certain that he'll see much playing time after logging no more than 18 minutes in any of his preseason appearances.
Beasley more or less replicated what he'd often done during his stint with the Rockets in the second half of last season, as he wasn't shy about looking for his own offense Monday during his limited time on the floor. The
With Khris Middleton going down for six months due to a torn left hamstring, the Bucks opted to explore the trade market for some additional help offensively. He should offer the Bucks a plug-and-play option at both forward spots and could be one of a few different players to take on some of the scoring burden with the Bucks losing their top offensive player from a year ago. Beasley averaged 18.2 minutes per game a season ago, but has the potential to see that increased with the Bucks, who are in desperate need of some offensive help. He'll still likely come off the bench to start the season, but we should get a clearer picture of the Bucks' lineup once training camp is underway.
