Beasley (quadriceps) is off the injury report heading into Thursday's preseason matchup against Portland, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Beasley had been dealing with a minor quadriceps injury which made him sit out Monday's exhibition contest. The guard will be able to get one final tuneup with the team Thursday before the regular season officially begins next Wednesday.
Beasley (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Monday's preseason game against the Suns.
Beasley was listed as questionable earlier in the day due to a right quad injury, and he's since been downgraded to out. He figures to have a chance to return Thursday in his squad's last preseason against Portland.
Beasley is considered questionable to play Monday against the Suns due to a bruised quad, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.
The issue doesn't look to be anything serious, but Beasley's status will be something for daily fantasy players to monitor as Monday's matchup approaches.
Beasley supplied 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 19 minutes during the Nuggets' 111-91 preseason win over the Clippers on Thursday.
Beasley outperformed starter Gary Harris (four points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal) for the second time in as many exhibitions, with the FSU product now averaging 14.0 points across the first two preseason games. Beasley took a significant step forward last season while logging a career-high 23.2 minutes per contest, averaging 11.3 points (on 47.4 percent shooting, including 40.2 percent from three-point range), 2.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 81 games. He'll play a key role in the backcourt rotation at minimum again this season, with Harris' elite defense likely the key to the latter holding onto the starting job for the time being.
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.
Beasley (personal) is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Rockets, T.J. McBride of MileHighSports.com reports.
Beasley missed Tuesday's win over Detroit due to the birth of his first child, but it's possible he plays Thursday. More information may arrive following morning shootaround.
Beasley will not play in Tuesday's tilt against the Pistons for Personal reasons.
Beasley's absence should free up some extra run for Gary Harris and Monte Morris. It is unclear if he will miss any additional time, so consider him day-to-day heading into Thursday's matchup with the Rockets.
Beasley totaled 17 points (5-14 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and one rebound in 27 minutes during Friday's 122-105 loss to the Warriors.
Beasley saw extra run Friday with the starting unit basically played off the court in the first half. He was able to hit five triples during his time on the floor but added just one rebound and nothing else. Beasley had a nice run of standard league relevance earlier in the season, however, that time has come to an end and he is now purely a three-point streamer across most formats.
Beasley finished with eight points (3-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 22 minutes during Saturday's 120-112 loss to New Orleans.
Beasley moved to the bench, allowing Gary Harris to resume his spot in the starting unit. This move likely signals the end of Beasley being a standard league asset and owners holding onto him can probably move on to greener pastures.
Beasley will come off the bench Saturday against the Pelicans, Chris Dempsey of the Nuggets' official site reports.
Coach Michael Malone has inserted Gary Harris back into the starting five, though reports indicate he remains on a minutes restriction. Still, this could mean the end of Beasley being a regular part of the Nuggets' starting five, and it's possible we see his role reduced from here on out. As a reserve this season, Beasley has averaged 10.0 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 21.0 minutes.
Beasley is listed in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Clippers, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
Beasley will start his ninth straight game Sunday and is averaging 19.9 points and 2.4 rebounds over 31.8 minutes while shooting 53.2 percent from the field in that span. Gary Harris (groin) returned to action Friday against Mavericks with 21 minutes but the team doesn't plan to return him to the starting lineup while still on a minutes restriction. Beasley is likely to remain in the Nuggets' starting five until Harris can be fully reintegrated into the rotation.
Beasley recorded 13 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three rebounds and a steal across 27 minutes in Friday's 114-104 win over the Mavericks.
Beasley's enjoying a torrid 10-game run from 3-point range, as he's gone 34-of-71 for a 47.9 percent conversion rate from beyond the arc. His sharpshooting skills make him a lock to retain a spot in the starting lineup alongside Jamal Murray, although Isaiah Thomas, Monte Morris and Gary Harris will continue to nip at his heels.
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.
