Beasley (personal) remains out for Tuesday's game against Brooklyn. Beasley is still away from the team while attending to a personal matter. The Lakers will continue updating his status on a game-to-game basis, but it's unclear when he might return to game action.
Beasley (personal) was inactive for Sunday's 128-110 loss to the Lakers, but rejoined the team on the bench for the second half of the contest, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports. Beasley has missed 10 games this season while his mother has been in failing health, but he met up with the Lakers for the road contest in Washington, which is close to his hometown. It's unclear if he'll join the team in Brooklyn and suit up Tuesday for the final leg of its road trip, but even if he does, Beasley seems unlikely to be included in the rotation after having not played since Dec. 8. Beasley is averaging a career-low 4.4 points in 7.1 minutes per game this season.
Beasley will not be available Saturday due to a personal matter, Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet reports. Details surrounding the situation haven't been made public, but consider Beasley day-to-day and questionable to be back with the team for Monday's home matchup with Miami.
Beasley scored 14 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding four rebounds and an assist in only 13 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 120-96 win over the Suns. It was his best scoring performance for the Lakers so far, and Beasley seems to be finding his rhythm after playing only sporadically through the first five weeks of the season due to a family matter that kept him away from the team. Consistent court time will be hard to come by with LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma seeing big minutes at the forward positions, but Beasley could eventually carve out a role for himself as a bench scorer.
Beasley (personal) returned to practice Tuesday, Kyle Goon of the Southern California News Group reports. Beasley is back with the Lakers after stepping away from the team over the weekend to tend to a personal matter. He's appeared in just three games this season, totaling three points and three rebounds across 10 minutes, leaving him off the fantasy radar for the time being.
