Michael Beasley says the ankle he twisted against Philly is fine
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "It was a boxscore practically turned upside down. It has been a while since Michael Beasley had been cast in the role of Miami Heat go-to scorer.

The Oklahoman "Because of the timing of his rise to stardom, Kevin Durant has been and will forever be linked to LeBron James. Their basketball lives are intertwined. Comparisons have been made.

Roger Mason Jr and Michael Beasley have been guaranteed

The Miami Heat coach acknowledged Sunday that it wasn't until after training camp that he began formulating a plan for the Heat 2008 first-round draft choice. Before that, he said it was..." December 02
Arizona Republic "The Miami Heat started this season putting Michael Beasley where the Suns had him at the end of last season — on the bench for entire games. Everything Beasley gets this season, except for the Suns’ first $4.7 million buyout check, will be earned. He has to earn trust, respect and playing time..." November 26
Real GM Basketball "The Miami Heat have been very impressed with how Michael Beasley has revived his career during the early part of the season.

Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "He leads the NBA in points per touch and led the Miami Heat in scoring in the second quarter of Saturday night's 111-110 loss to the Boston Celtics at AmericanAirlines Arena. But what might matter most is Michael Beasley apparently also leads the Heat in patience. With 10 points on 5-of-7..." November 11
Spoelstra says Allen Beasley Haslem won't play tonight. Wade likely to start.
By the way Beasley punched himself in the head so hard tonight that he needed treatment after the game.
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Greg Oden wanted to do more Tuesday; that's a good sign. The Miami Heat wouldn't allow him; that's a telling sign. Back in the NBA after being sidelined since Dec. 2009 by knee issues the 7-foot center took the first of what are expected to be several small steps on his way back to the court..." October 02

NBA.com "Eric Bledsoe the 23-year-old point guard brimming with star potential won the headlines in the Phoenix Suns’ July trade with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Arizona Sports "The Phoenix Suns have until August 31 to release Michael Beasley and it won't take that long. The troubled former number 2 overall pick has worn out his welcome in the Valley of the Sun and will soon be shown the door. The move will likely come sometime in the next week after the Suns have done..." August 10
My belief here is the Suns waive and stretch Beasley. So he is gone but gets his 9 mill at 1.8 per year over the next 5 years
Arizona Republic "The risk has outweighed the reward in Michael Beasley’s contract but it would be unlikely for the Suns to get out of his contract based on his recent arrest unless they just eat $9 million. Beasley’s arrest on suspicion of marijuana possession early Tuesday in Scottsdale is not a misstep that..." August 07
SI.com "Suns forward Michael Beasley was arrested early Tuesday morning in Scottsdale Ariz. for suspicion of marijuana possession. Scottsdale’s website offered this summary of the arrest.

April 07
Arizona Republic "A foul hurt Michael Beasley’s elbow but it is his performance and the Suns’ new small-forward option that could hurt his playing time.

February 04
Arizona Republic "When the Suns made Michael Beasley their free-agency priority in July, he became the team's X-factor. When the Suns reached the season's quarter pole this week, Beasley was close to becoming the team's ex-starter. Some math problems just don't have a solution no matter how long you stare...." December 07
Arizona Republic "Michael Beasley passed like he never had before Friday night in Los Angeles. And the Suns forward is shooting almost as poorly as he ever has for a 10-game stretch. There is some reason for both. Beasley said he has been affected by a sprained pinkie finger on his left (shooting) hand since..." November 18
Bright Side Of The Sun "Most every guy in the Phoenix Suns 10-man rotation dives, scrums and leaves everything they've got on the floor. No deficit is too big to overcome. No game is over until the final whistle blows. Down 26 to Cleveland? No problem. Down 10 to Denver? No worries. Down 18 to Chicago? Let's..." November 15
Arizona Republic "The Suns' 1-3 start had begun to feel like a shaken bottle, filling with pressure the more the problems mounted over the collapse in Orlando and relapse in Miami.

Arizona Republic "My Sunday best … No relationship fascinates me more right now than that of Suns coach Alvin Gentry and forward Michael Beasley. Beasley was terrific against Denver Friday night, going 13 of 21 for 29 points and 10 rebounds in 33 minutes. As my colleague Paul Coro pointed out, the Suns had..." October 28
Bright Side Of The Sun "Long before the NBA free agency period arrived in July, I thought Michael Beasley was a guy the Suns should target. Look it up, fool, if you don't believe me! Anyway, in Phoenix the talented forward with the troubled past would be partnered up with Alvin Gentry who I consider the perfect coach for..." October 07
Minneapolis Star Tribune "Two games remain in a season that once held so much promise for the Timberwolves, so little time left that you might think everyone could see the future fast approaching.

St. Paul Pioneer Press "It's probably a good time to start talking about intangibles for the Timberwolves or the dreaded "moral victory."

Minneapolis Star Tribune "Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley came off the bench for a third consecutive game Wednesday against Indiana, two nights after he delivered a monstrously efficient 34-point night at Houston.

St. Paul Pioneer Press "Former NBA star Norm Nixon watched Michael Beasley's performance the past two games from his Los Angeles home.

Minneapolis Star Tribune "Right now I'm sitting next to Michael and he's wearing all kinds of brown. Brown loafers with lighter-brown shoes with some kind of brown-check pattern, all of which mesh nicely with his brown jacket and pink shirt. So, I'm jealous. Fashion aside, I wanted to touch on something I tweeted..." February 01
Minneapolis Star Tribune "Michael Beasley joked afterward that he really had no choice. It was there for him. Beasley, coming off the bench for the Timberwolves on Monday, already had shown that this was going to be one of those nights scorers have. Houston coach Kevin McHale had tried one thing after another, finally..." January 31
Minneapolis Star Tribune "Greetings from Houston. Youngblood here. I had the distinct privilege to cover tonight's game. It was something to watch. You probably already know the numbers.

St. Paul Pioneer Press "Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley was struggling in the offense, particularly with his shooting, before he missed 11 games because of a right midfoot sprain.

Minneapolis Star Tribune "Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman emerged after Sunday's 93-72 victory ended their two-game losing streak and remarked how the ball moved better offensively against the Wizards that afternoon than it had before in this still young season.

Beasley's Wolves teammates Derrick..." October 13
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel "Just when you think you've experienced the complete Michael Beasley experience come nights such as Thursday.
