Beasley ended with 13 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 97-90 loss to Portland. Beasley started the second half Wednesday, filling in for Torrey Craig who was off the floor with a facial injury. Craig was able to return to the floor during the second half but was sporting a mask. Beasley finished the game with 13 points but was only able to convert 3-of-8 from the charity stripe. It would appear Craig should be ready to go for Game 3 Friday, but in the event he is forced to the sidelines, Beasley could shift into the starting lineup.
Beasley totaled 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and two assists over 28 minutes in the Nuggets' loss to the Spurs on Thursday. Beasley nearly produced a double-double in Thursday's loss, missing that feat by one rebound. It was one of Beasley's best all-around games of the season, though his strong performance wasn't enough to get the Nuggets a needed win. Beasley's production has been inconsistent this season, and another 20-point outburst would be surprising in Game 4 on Saturday.
Beasley amassed 25 points (9-13 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two steals, one assist, and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 118-108 loss to the Jazz. Beasley ended Tuesday's loss with 25 points in 31 minutes, his highest scoring game in over two months. The starters were run off the court for the Nuggets meaning the second unit saw additional run. He has scored in double-digits just twice in his past nine games prior to Tuesday and so there is certainly an element of risk in streaming him in for the final day of the regular season.
Beasley contributed 19 points (7-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two assists, one rebound and one steal across 25 minutes in the Nuggets' 113-85 win over the Spurs on Wednesday. Like reserve backcourt mate Monte Morris, Beasley saw a healthy allotment of opportunity in the lopsided win. The 22-year-old hadn't scored in double digits since March 21, a drought that was the byproduct of both limited minutes and a significant shooting slump. Beasley had played over 20 minutes only twice in the six games preceding Wednesday's and shot 21.7 percent over that span, including 17.2 percent from distance.
Beasley (personal) returned to action in Thursday's 112-85 loss to the Rockets and finished with four points (1-9 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes. After missing the Nuggets' previous game Tuesday against the Pistons due to the personal matter, Beasley couldn't find his stroke from the outside, much like the rest of his teammates on a night Denver shot 4-for-24 from three-point range. When Beasley isn't knocking down outside shots, he brings little else to the table from a fantasy perspective. That's been a common occurrence in his last five outings, during which he's averaging 6.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.0 triple while shooting a collective 24.4 percent from the field.
