Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Strong effort in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley recorded 17 points (7-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists, two steals and one rebound in 25 minutes during Friday's 116-98 loss to the Hawks.

Beasley did everything he could, but limited contributions from his teammates led to a blowout loss, which ultimately led to coach Ryan Saunders keeping Beasley on the bench to stay fresh for Saturday's game. With D'Angelo Russell (rest) out against the Pelicans, Beasley could again be asked to take on a big offensive role. Over the past six games, he's averaging 21.0 points on 17.3 shots, plus 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 33.7 minutes.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Back to earth with 15 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley compiled 15 points (5-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 34 minutes in Monday's 108-97 loss to the Hawks.

After a masterful 28-point showing against the Grizzlies, Beasley fell in line with his usual averages in the loss. Still, Beasley is on pace for a career year, averaging a full nine points above his next highest-average in 2018 as a role player with the Nuggets. He's also on pace for career highs in assists and steals, and his 45.8 percent field-goal percentage is also a significant improvement over previous seasons.

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

Beasley had 28 points (11-23 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal in Wednesday's 118-107 loss to the Grizzlies.

Beasley has led the Timberwolves in scoring for five of their first 11 games this season. He averaged 20.2 points on 45.8 percent shooting across that 11-game span. Even with Karl-Anthony Towns back from injury, it appears Beasley's scoring output may not take too much of a hit.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Goes for 24 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley notched 24 points (9-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and three rebounds across 35 minutes in Sunday's win over the Spurs.

Beasley led the Timberwolves in minutes with 35 and was just one of two players that reached the 20-point mark. He has been one of the Timberwolves' most reliable scoring threats this season but his numbers might take a hit if Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) manages to return for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Leads team with 29 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley went for 29 points (11-20 FG, 7-11 3Pt), four rebounds and two assists across 40 minutes in the 125-122 overtime loss to the Spurs.

Beasley's seven 3-pointers made were a career-high and the 29 points were a season-high. Despite the return of Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist), Beasley still led the team in scoring and managed to put up 20 shots for the first time this season.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Torches former team with 25 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley tallied 25 points (10-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Sunday's 124-109 loss to the Nuggets.

Beasley was fantastic against his former team, contributing across the board in what was his best performance of the season. Despite the losing effort, those with shares in Beasley have to be thrilled with his recent production. Until Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) is back on the floor, Beasley should continue soaking up a sizeable chunk of the offensive responsibility, making him a potential sell-high candidate.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Scores team-high 21 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley posted 21 points (8-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 26 minutes in Friday's loss against the Wizards.

Beasley stepped up for the Timberwolves with Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) out and D'Angelo Russell struggling (6-16 FG for 14 points), and he posted his second 20-point game of the season. In fact, Beasley has scored 18 or more points in four of his five appearances this season, so it's fair to say he already has a steady, sizable role in Minnesota's offensive scheme.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Helps shoulder scoring load in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley posted 19 points (5-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 7-8 FT) and four rebounds Tuesday in the Timberwolves' 124-101 loss to the Clippers.

The Timberwolves were blown out for a second straight game with Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) missing from the lineup, but unlike Sunday's loss to the Lakers, Beasley was at least able to put up a high volume of shot attempts before head coach Ryan Saunders pulled his starters for the night. Beasley's 19 points were second on the team only to D'Angelo Russell, and both players should continue to see added usage on offense while Towns is week-to-week with his injury. Expect Beasley's numbers to remain mostly empty outside of the points and three-pointers categories, however.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Continues strong play in backcourt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley compiled 18 points (7-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds and a steal across 39 minutes in Saturday's 116-11 win over the Jazz.

Beasley has his share of off-the-court issues, but his excellent play alongside D'Angelo Russell has quelled those problems within the organization, at least for now. The former Seminole is a critical cog in the offense over the first two games. The upcoming battle against the Lakers will be an interesting test.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Top scorer in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley posted 23 points (10-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and a steal across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 111-101 win over the Pistons.

Despite entering a guilty plea in court earlier in the week, Beasley suited up, started, and was instrumental in the victory. It appears that he's worth the four-year, $60 million deal he signed in the offseason in the early going. There's no word from the league regarding disciplinary action for Beasley at this juncture, but the Wolves stated no action would be taken until the season was over.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Enters guilty plea
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley has formally entered a guilty plea for threats of violence stemming from an October charge, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The felony drug charges against Beasley were dropped.

While Beasley still has some legal hurdles ahead of him, it looks as though he'll avoid jail time or home confinement for the time being. Charania notes that any such orders would be served after the conclusion of the 2020-21 season. That's good news for Beasley and the Timberwolves, though it's quite possible he could face additional discipline from the NBA itself. For now, though, Beasley is on track to be available for Wednesday night's season opener against Detroit.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Strong preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 3-4 3Pt) with 11 rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes in Wednesday's preseason win over Dallas.

Beasley averaged 12 points in 22.9 minutes in three preseason games and was in the starting lineup. More importantly, he averaged 4.3 three-point shot attempts per game, which bodes well for him to keep up the career-high 8.2 three-point shots attempted per game he averaged after joining the T-Wolves from Denver last season. He could continue to be a strong source of three pointers as a starter with Minnesota.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is starting Saturday's preseason game against the Grizzlies, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

As much as Ryan Saunders doesn't want us to read into the preseason starting five, it's tough not to when Beasley and Josh Okogie are in the starting five over No. 1 overall pick Anthony Edwards. Beasley was excellent for the Wolves in 14 games last season, averaging 20.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 33.1 minutes.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley (not injury related) is not on the injury report for Saturday's preseason game against the Grizzlies.

The league is expected to hand a suspension for Beasley for his arrest in late September, but that hasn't happened yet. As a result, he should be available for Saturday's preseason game.

December 2, 2020 01:00 PM
Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Suspension is 'likely'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is "likely" to serve a suspension in response to his arrest this fall, Dane Moore of Blue Wire Podcasts reports.

Beasley was charged with fifth-degree drug possession and threat of violence in October following his September arrest. It's anticipated that he'll be serving some sort of suspension by the league as a result.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Staying in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley and the Timberwolves have come to terms on a four-year, $60 million deal, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The Timberwolves are showing faith in Beasley, as he was charged with fifth-degree drug possessions and threat of violence earlier this offseason. This much of a financial investment indicates they are not too concerned by the situation. The 23-year-old thrived in a short period of time after being traded from the Nuggets last year. He averaged 20.7 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.5 triples across 33.1 minutes in 14 games. Minnesota drafted Anthony Edwards with the first pick in the 2020 NBA Draft and subsequently traded for Ricky Rubio, so he may have a hard time reaching those numbers again.

Timberwolves' Malik Beasley: Charged following arrest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beasley is being charged with fifth-degree drug possessions and threat of violence following his Sep. 27 arrest at his Plymouth, Minnesota residence, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Beasley's attorneys, in a joint statement, noted "We are cooperating with the law enforcement investigation and will carefully review the discovery and charges in the coming days." Beasley is a restricted free agent who played very well after being traded to the Timberwolves, averaging 20.7 and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 42.6 percent from three in 14 contests. If the charges stick, it's unclear what sort of discipline he'll receive from law enforcement and/or the league.

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.
