Beasley lit up the Heat for 23 points (8-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added two assists over 28 minutes Monday in the Nuggets' 103-87 victory. Making his sixth consecutive start in place of the injured Gary Harris (groin), Beasley once again racked up the points on the back of some stellar efficiency from the field and distance. Despite attempting more than half of his 9.0 shots per game from beyond the arc this season, Beasley upholds a 50.5 percent mark from the field, which has translated to some explosive scoring outings when he's received major minutes. Unfortunately for fantasy managers, it's come with little in the way of supporting statistics. During the aforementioned six-start run, Beasley is averaging only 2,0 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.8 steals in 32.7 minutes per game.
Beasley scored 16 points (6-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and recorded three rebounds along with an assist and a steal in 31 minutes Monday against the Pistons. Beasley has been hot from beyond the arc of late, knocking down three or more treys in each of his previous five matchups. He's been receiving more playing time than usual with Gary Harris (hamstring) still on the shelf due to injury. In his previous three games, Beasley is averaging 28.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 steals to begin the month of February. His playing time figures to take a significant hit when Harris returns to health.
Beasley produced 22 points (9-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt), two rebounds, and two steals in 29 minutes during Saturday's 107-106 victory over the Timberwolves. Beasley remained hot Saturday, dropping another 22 points in the one-point victory. He has been on a tear of late and is cashing in on injuries to both Jamal Murray (ankle) and Gary Harris (groin). Harris has had a slew of soft tissue injuries thus far this season and there is a decent chance the Nuggets manage his time moving forward, once he returns to action. Given the impressive play of Beasley, he will likely maintain a large part in the rotation and should be a borderline 12-team player, especially for those in need of points and threes.
Beasley delivered 35 points (12-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-7 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one steal across 41 minutes in the Nuggets' 136-122 win over the Rockets on Friday. Beasley made the most of a spot start at shooting guard in place of Gary Harris (groin), exploding for a career-high point total on laser-focused shooting. The 2016 first-round pick is enjoying a career season, but his offensive efficiency has especially been something to behold lately. Factoring in Friday's effort, Beasley has shot at least 50.0 percent in each of the last 11 games, factoring out an eight-minute stint versus the Jazz on Jan. 23 in which he didn't log an attempt. Beasley finished January with a 55.0 percent success rate from the field, including 45.7 percent from three-point range. Given Harris' lingering injury issues this season and Beasley's vastly improved play, it remains to be seen how the minutes between the two will continue to be divided over the balance of the campaign.
Beasley will draw the start at shooting guard for Friday's game versus the Rockets, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports. Beasley will replace Gary Harris (groin) in the starting lineup. With Jamal Murray (ankle) also sidelined the Nuggets' backcourt is relatively thin. Thus, he will presumably be in line for a healthy workload. He has averaged 15.1 points, 2.6 points, and 1.9 assists across 34.6 minutes in seven starts this season.
