Beasley will start Friday's preseason game against the Warriors, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports. With several key Lakers players out due to rest or injury, Beasley will enter the starting five. As a result, he makes for a reasonable DFS option.
Beasley (rib) finished Saturday's 103-87 loss to the Clippers with eight points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 18 minutes. Beasley suffered a rib injury during Thursday's exhibition, but X-rays were negative and he took the floor as usual for Saturday's game. It appears to be a non-issue, so expect Beasley to take on his usual role moving forward without restrictions.
Beasley underwent an X-ray on his right rib Thursday night, and with the results coming back negative, he is not expected to miss time, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. This is encouraging news for Beasley, who has now avoided two potentially serious injuries already this preseason. If Beasley is held out of any of the Lakers' upcoming contests, it would likely just be precautionary.
Beasley left Thursday's game against the Kings due to a right rib contusion, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports. Beasley exited the game in the second half and was ruled out for the remainder of the exhibition. The injury isn't believed to be overly serious, although the Lakers may hold him out of Saturday's preseason action against the Clippers as a precaution.
Beasley (head) played 19 minutes in Tuesday's exhibition matchup with the Nuggets. Beasley was limited to just two points on 1-of-5 shooting, but the news here is that he was able to take the court after leaving Sunday's preseason opener with a head injury. The forward was subsequently cleared of a concussion and should be considered healthy going forward.
