  • Beasley finished with four points (2-5 FG), four rebounds, three assists and one block across 20 minutes during Wednesday's 112-99 loss to the Magic. Despite drawing the start over the injured Kristaps Porzingis (elbow, ankle), Beasley played just 20 minutes and failed to make a significant impact. Doug McDermott (30 minutes), Lance Thomas (22 minutes) and Kyle O'Quinn (20 minutes) were all equal beneficiaries of Porzingis' absence, despite coming off the pine.

  • Beasley will start at power forward for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News reports. Kristaps Porzingis is dealing with both an elbow and ankle injury and will get the night off Wednesday. That leaves a huge gap in the frontcourt and allows Beasley to pick up the start in his place. While Beasley will get the call in the top unit, it will likely be a committee approach to fill Porzingis' minutes, with guys like Doug McDermott and Lance Thomas seeing a larger workload as well.

  • Beasley (ankle) recorded six points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover across 18 minutes during Saturday's 107-111 loss to the Pistons. Beasley was dealing with a sore ankle going into Saturday's contest, so it's certainly promising that he was able to take the court for 18 minutes. With Lance Thomas failing to get off the bench himself, Beasley saw a fairly solid workload, though the two will still likely battle for minutes behind Kristaps Porzingis at power forward moving forward. Beasley's ankle injury should no longer be a concern.

  • Beasley (ankle) will attempt to play in Saturday's game against the Pistons, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. Beasley suffered a foot injury in the opener against Oklahoma City on Thursday, but after taking it easy Friday he'll give it a go Saturday night. Considering Beasley's role is somewhat difficult gauge even when healthy, he's best avoided in daily contests given the current situation.

  • Knicks' Michael Beasley: Questionable Saturday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Beasley (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Barbara Barker of Newsday reports. Beasley left Thursday's game against the Thunder with a left ankle sprain. More updates on his status should emerge following Saturday morning's shootaround. If he misses the game, Lance Thomas and Doug McDermott are candidates to see additional run.
