Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Arrested on two charges
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley was arrested Saturday in Plymouth, Minn. on charges of marijuana possession and receiving and concealing stolen property, Shams Charania and John Krawczynski of The Athletic report.

The 23-year-old is currently being held without bail at Hennepin County Jail and is expected to be released Sunday or Monday. The Timberwolves acknowledged Sunday that they are aware of Beasley's arrest and are continuing to gather more information about the circumstances behind the incident. Beasley, who recently joined the Timberwolves for their three-week voluntary minicamp, is set to become a restricted free agent when the 2019-20 season ends, but Minnesota is expected to make an effort to retain him. He averaged 20.7 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 42.6 percent from three-point range in his 14 games with the club after being acquired from the Nuggets in February.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Could be long-term fit in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Timberwolves president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas indicated that the team hopes to sign Beasley to a long-term contract, Dane Moore of Zone Coverage Minnesota reports.

Speaking on both Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez during a "State of the Timberwolves" address on May 2, Rosas was asked about the futures of both players, who were acquired from the Nuggets at the trade deadline. "We want those guys to be Timberwolves for a long, long time," Rossas said. "Hopefully, for the rest of their careers." Considering Beasley has played only 14 games in Minnesota, that's a lofty declaration by Rossas, but it appears the Wolves consider the former first-round pick a foundational piece. He'll hit restricted free agency this offseason, at which point the Wolves could offer him a more lucrative, long-term deal.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Scores 21 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley had 21 points (8-20 fG, 4-7 3PT, 1-3 FT) and nine rebounds in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.

He was a team-low minus-26 in 29 minutes, but Beasley continues to be a valuable fantasy asset since coming over from Denver. He's now topped 20 points in four straight games, while averaging just under 22 points per game since the trade.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Drops career-high 29 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley finished with 29 points (14-21 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Friday's 132-118 loss to the Magic.

On a dull night for the Timberwolves, Beasley provided the only highlight, going for a career-high 29 points. He has been remarkable since joining the Timberwolves, putting up top-55 numbers over the past two weeks. His minutes are locked in and it would appear they are going to see what they have in Beasley, no matter the team's overall standing.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Team-high 24
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley posted 24 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes Wednesday night during a 115-108 victory over the Bulls.

Since being acquired by Minnesota, Beasley has attempted at least 12 shots in every game he's played --- finishing with no fewer than 14 points to boot. A significant piece of Denver's rotations last season, he simply fell victim to the roster crunch and the rise of Michael Porter Jr. The Timberwolves' backcourt construction is capable of allowing Beasley to sustain his productivity, even with the eventual return of Karl Anthony-towns (wrist).

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Scores team-high 28 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley contributed 28 points (11-13 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and three rebounds in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 139-134 win at New Orleans.

Beasley has topped the 15-point mark in all but one game since joining the Timberwolves prior to the trade deadline, and he continues to be one of Minnesota's main scoring threats -- especially considering Karl-Anthony Towns remains sidelined with a wrist injury. Beasley is averaging 21.1 points while shooting an impressive 43.3 percent from three-point range in his first 10 games with Minnesota, and his value has seen a considerable rise since he changed teams last month.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Goes for 21 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley had 21 points (7-14 FG, 3-9 3PT, 4-5 FT), six rebounds five assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over Miami.

Beasley continues to play well in a much larger role with the Timberwolves, as he's now topped 20 points five times in seven games. Since joining the Timberwolves, Beasley is averaging 4.0 made threes per game.

February 24, 2020 04:36 PM
Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Two boards shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley registered 17 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 128-116 loss at Denver.

Beasley has started all five games he's played for the Timberwolves, and the results have been impressive, as he's averaged 22.0 points per game while shooting 43.5 percent from deep during that span. Even if his 3-point percentage regresses some, Beasley will be a must-start player in most formats due to his large role in the Timberwolves' offense.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Explodes for 27 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley notched 27 points (10-18 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's 127-117 loss against the Celtics.

Beasley has been a valuable contributor for Minnesota since he joined from the Nuggets earlier this month, and he is averaging 23.3 points with 6.0 rebounds in his first four games with the Timberwolves. He is also shooting 43.9 percent from deep during that stretch, and he could remain an integral part of the team's offense while Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) remains sidelined.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Erupts for 28 while Towns sits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley contributed 28 points (11-25 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 38 minutes Wednesday in the Timberwolves' 115-108 loss to the Hornets.

Beasley has reached the 20-point mark in two of his first three games in Minnesota, with both of the big outings coming when either D'Angelo Russell or Karl-Anthony Towns have sat due to injury. Unless the wrist issue that sidelined Towns on Wednesday proves to be more than a day-to-day concern, Beasley looks like he'll be the Wolves' clear No. 3 option on offense coming out of the All-Star break, but that's probably enough to keep him useful in 12-team leagues, particularly for fantasy managers aiming to make up ground in points and treys.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Career night from deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley notched 23 points (8-19 FG, 7-13 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 142-115 win over the Clippers.

Making his Timberwolves debut after being acquired from Denver earlier in the week, Beasley didn't take long to make an impact for his new squad. He drew the start at shooting guard and knocked down seven triples, setting a new career high in the category. It's worth noting that D'Angelo Russell (quadriceps) was missing from this contest, so Beasley probably can't be counted on to see this volume of shot attempts -- or converted as efficiently -- once the higher-usage option in Russell is worked into the mix. That said, Beasley looks like he'll have a clear path to big minutes, which should be enough to give him value in 12-team leagues for fantasy managers looking for aid in the form of points and three-pointers.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Starting in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley will start during his Timberwolves debut Saturday against the Clippers.

Beasley is making not just his first start for the Timberwolves, but his first start of the season. When seeing at least 24 minutes this season, he's averaged 13.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is available to make his Timberwolves debut Saturday against the Clippers, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

It's not entirely clear what Beasley's role will be with his new team. However, given how thin the rotation is, it's possible he continues to see the 18.2 minutes per game he was given in Denver, if not more.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Traded to Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley has been traded to the Timberwolves as part of a four-team deal, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com reports.

Beasley will head to Minnesota along with Juancho Hernangomez, Evan Turner and Jarred Vanderbilt in a blockbluster deal that will send Robert Covington, Jordan Bell and a second-round pick to Houston, Clint Capela and Nene to Atlanta, and Gerald Green, Noah Vonleh, Keita Bates-Diop, Shabazz Napier and a first-round pick to Denver. Beasley will likely come off the bench behind Andrew Wiggins in his new home. He is averaging 7.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 18 minutes a game through 40 contests this season.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Scores season-high 27 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley had 27 points (9-16 FG, 5-10 3PT, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three steals and one assist in 39 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 134-131 win at Golden State.

Beasley came out of nowhere to deliver his best game of the season considering he had scored more than 15 points just twice all season long, and that he hadn't logged more than 30 minutes yet this campaign. This performance should give him a bigger role in the rotation at least on a short-term scenario considering Jamal Murray will miss "multiple contests" due to a sprained left ankle.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Remains sidelined Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley failed to leave the bench during Sunday's 114-104 victory over the Clippers.

Beasley was out of the rotation Sunday, continuing his frustrating season. He has been interchangeable over the past two weeks which certainly makes him a tough player to roster in any format. He has the ability to score in bunches on the nights he sees meaningful minutes. Unfortunately, the scarcity of that happening voids his usability in all competitive leagues.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Left out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (coach's decision) did not see the court during Thursday's 124-116 win over the Pacers.

Beasley has reached double figures in scoring in four of his last six appearances, but he was limited to single digits in five straight prior to this more recent stretch. After enjoying a mini-breakout last season, Beasley has taken a step back here in 2019-20, which seems unlikely to change unless the Nuggets make some trades or a rash of injuries strikes.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Double-digit effort in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley finished with 13 points (5-14 FG, 3-10 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 112-100 loss to the Pelicans.

Beasley notched another double-digit scoring performance, ending with 13 points including three triples. He has now played at least 20 minutes in three straight games, averaging 12.0 points and 2.7 three-pointers. His role is very inconsistent, highlighted by the fact he had scored a total of 18 points in his previous five games.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Leads bench in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley produced 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes Sunday in the Nuggets' 128-104 win over the Lakers.

The scoring output was Beasley's second-best total of the season and just one point shy of the top mark he generated in the Nuggets' second game of the season. While Beasley's deft touch from the outside occasionally lends itself to big nights off the bench, he doesn't bring much to the table when his shot isn't falling. As evidence, Beasley is averaging just 1.5 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.1 blocks in 15.7 minutes per game this season.

Nuggets' Malik Beasley: Joins the fun
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley chipped in 14 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes during the Nuggets' 129-92 win over the Knicks.

One of eight Nuggets to score at least 10 points, Beasley also logged an absurd plus-33 for the game, a telling sign of the Nuggets complete control all evening. After looking like a bonafide rotational piece for much of last season, Beasley has seen his role and production shrink in coach Michael Malone's system so far this season. If the Nuggets are in the market for a superstar come the deadline, Beasley would be a trade candidate and a noteworthy stash.
