Michael Beasley came off the bench for 13 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal on 6-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's OT win over the Lakers. Beasley scored one point in 10 minutes on Sunday and had nine points in 15 minutes on Saturday, so it was tough to see this one coming. The Lakers weren't ready for it either, as Beasley had the go-ahead tip-in a key assist in the extra period. He's not worth owning in most leagues, but is probably worth throwing on a watch list in 12-team leagues for as long as Tim Hardaway is out with his leg injury.

Michael Beasley fouled out in 10 minutes vs. Atlanta on Sunday. Beasley was in some successful small-ball lineups when he could stay on the court, but that obviously wasn't very long. He finished with one point, two rebounds and one turnover.

Beasley will shift back to a bench role for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies. Beasley has started the last two games in place of the injured Kristaps Porzingis (ankle), averaging 17.0 points and 3.0 rebounds across 21.0 minutes. However, with Porzingis healthy and set to rejoin the top unit, Beasley will be sent back to a bench role and should see decreased minutes and production because of it. With that said, Beasley will likely fall off the radar in most fantasy leagues, but will still remain a quality offensive spark plug off the bench for the Knicks

Michael Beasley made another start on Monday vs. the Pacers, scoring 13 points in 14 minutes with three boards, five turnovers and three fouls. The game was over by halftime, so coach Jeff Hornacek pulled the starters early. Foul trouble was also an issue for Beasley. He had 21 points on 10-of-19 shooting on Sunday with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one assist, one block and five turnovers in 28 minutes, but his value will fall off a cliff once Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) returns. If KP can't play on Wednesday at home against Memphis, Beasley will have a good chance to bounce back and will be on the streaming radar.

Michael Beasley and Damyean Dotson will remain in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pacers. Both Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) are out tonight, so Beasley should again be flirting with a usage in the 30s and is someone to consider deploying as a streamer or DFS option after posting 21 points his last time out. Dotson really didn't do much as a starter, so he can't be relied upon in most leagues. Joining these two in the starting five will be Jarrett Jack, Courtney Lee and Enes Kanter. Doug McDermott could also see some extended minutes with KP and THJ out.

Beasley posted 21 points (10-19 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot across 28 minutes in Sunday's 105-100 loss to the Knicks. Beasley started in relief of Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) and had a respectable evening. Beasley has often been a healthy scratch this season and routinely sees an average of 14-4 minutes when he does play, so he has no fantasy relevance unless there is a significant injury in the Knicks' frontcourt.

Michael Beasley netted a team-high 21 points on 10-of-19 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Magic, adding one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one assist, one block and five turnovers in 28 minutes. The turnovers weren't great, but Beasley's 35.7 usage rate was certainly encouraging and he should be a huge part of the Knicks offense while Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) and Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) are on the sidelines. He's played well as a starter this season with averages of 18.3 points, 5.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 block and 4.3 turnovers per contest on 55.3% shooting, so he's worth a look for anyone seeking a boost in the scoring department. Just know the turnovers will be an issue.

Michael Beasley will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Magic, with Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) unavailable. As a starter this season, Beasley owns averages of 17.0 points, 6.0 boards, 2.5 dimes, 1.0 block and 4.0 turnovers per contest on 57.1 percent shooting, so he's certainly someone to consider as a low-end streamer or punt play in daily leagues with a favorable matchup against the Magic.

Michael Beasley started the third quarter for Kristaps Porzingis on Wednesday. Porzingis was cleared to play after X-rays came back negative, but it wouldn't be surprising if New York played it safe here. Beasley dropped 30 points as a fill-in starter on Saturday, so maybe he'll get hot in the second half tonight.

Michael Beasley knows he'll likely be back on the bench on Monday vs. Portland with Kristaps Porzingis (back) expected back. "I’m used to it," Beasley said. "But that don’t change. That don’t change my work ethic. That don’t change the fact that I still got to be reliable for my teammates." Beasley has been a great teammate and professional all season despite being out of the rotation, but he came through for the Knicks with 30 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one block and six turnovers vs. the Rockets. Maybe he earned a spot in the rotation, but Beasley is too hard to trust when NYK is at full strength.
