Beasley (hamstring) will be going to jail for a gun case with a scheduled release date of Aug. 17, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports
After a career year for the 24-year-old guard, Beasley has been sentenced to 120 days in jail. The former Florida State Seminole will likely be out of jail in time before the start of the 2021-22 season.
Beasley (hamstring) will not play in the final two games of the season, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
As expected, Beasley's strained left hamstring will end his season. The wing had a strong year with the Wolves but appeared in just 37 games between injuries and suspension. In his 32.8 minutes per game, Beasley averaged 19.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists.
Beasley (hamstring) is not expected to return this season, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.
Beasley strained his hamstring in early April and has been sidelined since, and this latest piece of news suggests we've seen the last of him this season. If that's the case, Beasley finishes his first full season in Minnesota with averages of 19.6 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 32.8 minutes -- all career highs.
Beasley (hamstring) has resumed on-court work, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.
This is a tangible step in Beasley's recovery. However, there remains no official timetable for his return. The initial estimate back on April 5 was 4-to-6 weeks.
Beasley was diagnosed with a Grade 3 hamstring injury Monday and will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks.
The 24-year-old will be reevaluated in three weeks after an MRI revealed the severity of the issue Monday. Minnesota's final game of the regular season is May 16 against the Mavericks, so there's a legitimate possibility Beasley's 2020-21 season is over. Jordan McLaughlin, Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver should have increased roles for the Timberwolves, especially for the immediate future with Ricky Rubio (back) and Jaylen Nowell (lower leg) both doubtful Monday against the Kings.
Beasley (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against Sacramento.
Beasley is on track to miss a second straight game after the hamstring issue kept him out of Saturday's loss to the Sixers. Prior to the injury, the guard had mostly struggled through four games since returning from a suspension, averaging just 11.8 points on 28.0 percent shooting.
Beasley (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the 76ers, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.
It seemed unlikely that Beasley would be available against the 76ers after he was added to the injury report early Saturday. With Beasley ruled out, Jordan McLaughlin, Jaylen Nowell, Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver could see increased run for the Timberwolves.
Beasley has been deemed doubtful for Saturday's tilt against the 76ers due to left hamstring soreness.
This is the first Beasley has popped up on the injury report due to this issue. He struggled in Friday's loss to the Grizzlies, so this might help explain that. Should he ultimately get ruled out, look for some combination of Jordan McLaughlin, Jaylen Nowell, Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver to handle backcourt duties for the Timberwolves.
Beasley finished with 20 points (5-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), a rebound, a steal and a block across 32 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.
Beasley barely contributed in any categories aside from points and threes, but he came through when the team needed him the most, draining the go-ahead three-pointer with 37.8 seconds left in the game. The 24-year-old was coming off two subpar performances since returning from a 12-game suspension, but this effort should boost his confidence going forward. Dating back to before the suspension, Beasley has scored at least 20 points in three of his last five appearances.
Beasley (suspension) had 13 points (4-17 FG, 3-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 30 minutes in Saturday's 129-107 loss to Houston.
Making his return from an 12-game banishment, Beasley was thrown right back into the mix, playing heavy minutes as the starting shooting guard. Beasley and rookie Anthony Edwards combined for a healthy 39 field-goal attempts in the loss, but the duo's inefficiency made it difficult for the Timberwolves to keep pace with the hot-shooting Rockets.
Beasley (suspension) is expected to play 28-30 minutes in his return Saturday against the Rockets, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.
After missing 12 straight games due to a suspension, Beasley will re-join the starting five, but he'll have his minutes limited. In Beasley's last 10 games before the suspension, he averaged 21.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 36.1 minutes.
Beasley (suspension) will start in his return Saturday against the Rockets.
After 12 straight absences due to a suspension, Beasley will return and replace Jarred Vanderbilt in the starting five. In Beasley's last 10 games before the suspension, he averaged 21.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 36.1 minutes.
Coach Chris Finch said Beasley (suspension) will be ready to go when he becomes eligible to play on Saturday against Houston, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.
Finch confirmed Beasley has been able to practice with the team and that he'll indeed be ready to return once his suspension is lifted March 27. The return of the team's starting shooting guard likely will lead to reduced roles for Jaylen Nowell and Josh Okogie. Beasley has been stellar across 33 games so far this season -- averaging 20.5 points on 45.5 percent shooting, 4.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.5 triples per game.
Beasley has been suspended 12 games by the NBA for conduct stemming from charges in the offseason, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
In late October, Beasley was charged with fifth-degree drug possession and threat of violence following a Sept. 27 arrest at his Plymouth, Minn. residence. It was revealed in December that a suspension for Beasley was likely, but nothing came of it early in the year. Now, the league has decided to hand out a 12-game suspension three games before the All-Star break. Beasley's next chance to play arrives March 27 in a game against the Rockets. While he's out, Jaylen Nowell, Josh Okogie and Jarrett Culver are candidates to see more minutes.
Beasley posted 25 points (9-20 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and an assist across 37 minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss against the Bulls.
Beasley paced the Timberwolves offensively by delivering his 11th game with 25 or more points this season. He's now scored at least 25 in back-to-back contests for the second time in the current campaign, and it seems that Beasley has become the team's second option on offense behind Karl-Anthony Towns -- at least until D'Angelo Russell (knee) is able to return to the court.
Beasley posted 26 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3Pt), four assists, a rebound and a steal across 34 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Bucks.
Beasley had a strong performance across the board but excelled as a shooter, missing just six shots all game long en route to his 10th game with at least 25 points this season. This game should boost Beasley's confidence considerably, as he was hitting just 41.3 percent of his shots in his last five games prior to Tuesday's contest.
Beasley will come off the bench Wednesday against the Pacers after being late for a team walkthrough, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
The 24-year-old will come off the bench for the first time this season due to his tardiness. There's been no indication Beasley will face additional punishment, so he may just have a slight reduction in workload Wednesday.
Beasley scored 20 points (7-13 FG, 6-10 3Pt) while adding six assists, three rebounds and a steal in 37 minutes during Sunday's 116-112 win over the Raptors.
The 24-year-old tied Karl-Anthony Towns for the team lead in scoring on the night. Beasley has been a machine from long range this year, sinking at least three three-pointers in seven straight games and 20 of 27 overall, and as a result he's nearly doubled his scoring average from the last two seasons.
Beasley went for 31 points (12-21 FG, 7-13 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one steal over 37 minutes in Friday's loss to the Hornets.
Beasley has been on fire of late. In his last 11 games, he has topped 20 points nine times and 30 points three times. He's also hit at least four treys eight times. Over the 11 game stretch, Beasley is averaging 23.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting 41.4 percent from distance.
Beasley delivered 21 points (5-15 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, two assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Clippers.
Beasley tends to post better numbers when D'Angelo Russell (leg) is out, and such was the case Wednesday -- he ended as the team's second-highest scorer, despite struggling from the field. Beasley might be in line for an uptick on his numbers as long as Russell remains sidelined, but either way, he's been a reliable scoring threat for Minnesota, even if he's not the most well-rounded fantasy contributor. Beasley has surpassed the 20-point mark in four of his last five appearances.
