Beasley scored 23 points (10-18 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench during Monday's 119-104 win over the Nets. Enes Kanter played only nine minutes on the night, affording Beasley plenty of action alongside Kristaps Porzingis in the Knicks' frontcourt, and he responded with his third double-double in the last five games. Beasley played only 25 minutes total in his prior two games, however -- games in which Tim Hardaway (leg) was healthy enough to play -- and once Hardaway is able to see a full workload every night, Beasley's role figures to shrink.
Beasley scored a team-high 26 points (10-22 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-7 Ft) while adding 12 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 39 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 122-119 double-overtime loss to the Bulls. After missing the Knicks' previous game with a minor ankle injury, it seems safe to say Beasley is healthy. The 29-year-old's improbable career resurgence continues, and he now has three double-doubles in his last six games while averaging 20.4 points, 9.4 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks over that stretch.
Beasley (ankle) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Ian Begley of ESPN reports. Beasley was only able take part in portions of Tuesday's practice, but after testing the ankle out during pregame warmups, he's now officially been given the green light to play. Look for Beasley to slot back in as one of the first frontcourt players off the bench and the Knicks aren't reporting any sort of restrictions, so it appears he'll be on a full workload. Prior to his one-game absence, Beasley had really picked up his play of late, averaging 19.2 points, 9.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 block across 25.4 minutes in the previous five contests.
Beasley (ankle) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, taking some contact, and is questionable for Wednesday's tilt against the Bulls, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports. Beasley missed Sunday's game against Dallas while nursing a sprained ankle, which prompted some extra run for the likes of Lance Thomas (25 minutes) and Kyle O'Quinn (23 minutes). Though Beasley is apparently still feeling significant discomfort, the fact that he was able to take some contact at practice is an encouraging sign for his availability in regards to Wednesday's contest. More word on his status should arrive following that day's morning shootaround.
Beasley (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Steve Popper of The Bergen Record reports. Beasley was held out of Saturday's practice due to a sprained left ankle, and the Knicks will elect to hold out the veteran for at least one game. New York has off until Wednesday, giving Beasley another two days to recover. In his absence, look for Doug McDermott and Lance Thomas to be called upon to play more minutes on the wing Sunday.
