Malik Beasley News
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley (hamstring) is unlikely to suit up again this season, according to head coach Chris Finch. This cannot come as shocking news for a player that has missed 17 straight games. The Wolves have no incentive to play Beasley with their current record and only a handful of games left in the regular season. Anthony Edwards will continue to benefit with Beasley likely done for the year.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Malik Beasley (hamstring) and guard Ricky Rubio (back) have been listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the 76ers. Rubio missed Friday's game as he continues to deal with back spasms, while Beasley could be a candidate for rest on the second half of his team's back-to-back. If both guys are out, Jordan McLaughlin and Jaylen Nowell would both see added minutes, with Anthony Edwards likely to benefit as well.
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasleyis eligible to return on Saturday against the Rockets. Beasley hasn't played in a month due to a suspension, though head coach Chris Finch said that he's been taking part in team activities and is "getting great work in." Finch also said that Beasley would be ready to go for Saturday's game. The 24-year-old is having a fine season with averages of 20.5 points, 3.5 triples, 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 33.1 minutes per game. Beasley's return could mean a lesser role for rookie Anthony Edwardsas well as Jaylen Nowell. However, Beasley will likely be hard to trust for fantasy at first, given his likely low minute count upon his return.
Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasleywill miss the team's next 12 contests due to a suspension. The 24-year-old recently pled guilty to a felony stemming from an October incident where he waved a gun at a family parked near his residence. He will also serve 120 days in jail, which will occur upon completion of the 2021 campaign. Beasley is averaging 20.5 points throughout 33.1 minutes this season and should remain on fantasy rosters until he is ready to return. During his absence, look for Jarrett Culver and Jordan McLaughlin to gain additional appeal in deeper season-long formats.
