Malik Beasley started the second half for Torrey Craig (nose) and put up 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting in 27 minutes of action in a loss to the Blazers in Game 2 on Wednesday.
Craig did eventually return to the game, but Beasley played well and provided some much-needed hustle for the Nuggets. He grabbed two offensive rebounds; one of those rebounds came late in the fourth quarter as he soared over Enes Kanter to save the possession. He had a similar game overall to start Gary Harris, who had 12 points and three rebounds on 4-of-12 shooting. The backcourt squad of Jamal Murray, Harris, Beasley, and Monte Morris will have to shoot better than 15-of-49 from the field and 4-of-22 from beyond the arc for the Nuggets to win basketball games. Look for them to bounce back in Game 3 on Friday.

Malik Beasley will replace Torrey Craig (nose) in the starting lineup for the 2nd half of Game 2 on Wednesday.
This doesn't bode well for Craig's chances of making it back onto the floor for this game. The Nuggets will need Beasley to hold his own on defense and maybe get some scoring going as well if they are to climb back into this one.

Malik Beasley provided a spark when the Nuggets needed it in the second half of Tuesday's Game 2 against the Spurs as he knocked down a pair of threes on his way to eight points, three rebounds and three assists.
Beasley was one of the few to get some jumpers to go, and it was contagious in the third and fourth quarters. He played 23 minutes, taking most of Will Barton's (1-10 for three points) minutes down the stretch. Also helpful off the bench was Monte Morris with 11 points and six assists in 24 minutes.

Malik Beasley had a forgettable line Wednesday as he scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with two boards while missing six of his seven treys.
Malik Beasley has turned in a solid season off the bench for the second best team in the Western Conference by record. He almost cracked the top-150 (157) in 9-cat leagues while falling well short in 8-cat (188). If given a larger role next season, Beasley could be a sleeper as he would be a good fit for all teams in the modern NBA with his shooting ability and defensive versatility on the wings. His draft stock will be determined based on his role heading into next season.

Monte Morris and Malik Beasley combined for 47 points on Tuesday, just one more than what Donovan Mitchell single-handedly posted by his lonesome.
The ugly loss to the Jazz forced Denver to turn to its bench and as usual, both Morris and Beasley did not disappoint. Beasley had a team-high 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting (five 3s), one assist, two steals and one block. Morris chipped in 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting (two 3s) with three rebounds, four dimes and one steal. This has been the Denver storyline in spots this season, both of these role-players rose up to the challenge on many occasions and delivered.

Malik Beasley returned from a one-game personal absence on Thursday night but struggled, going 1-of-9 from the field for four points in 23 minutes.
Beasley's become a key part of the rotation this year but didn't have it tonight. If it's a consolation, most of his teammates didn't either.

Malik Beasley (personal) will be ready to take the court on Thursday as the Nuggets face the Rockets in a Western Conference battle.
Beasley has officially been listed as available going into tonight's matchup against the Rockets. With the Nuggets having such a crowded rotation on the wing, Beasley is a fringe player.

Malik Beasley (personal) is questionable to face the Rockets on Thursday.
If Beasley is forced to miss another game it will leave more minutes for Will Barton, Gary Harris, Monte Morris and Torrey Craig, while the latter two should get some more shot opportunities off the bench.

Malik Beasley (personal) will not play on Tuesday against the Pistons.
It'll leave more minutes available for Gary Harris, Will Barton and Torrey Craig. Denver's return to full health has limited Beasley's appeal anyway, so this shouldn't result in too much change from the recent production of the wing group.

Malik Beasley and Monte Morris scored 17 points each as the Nuggets looked to their bench for answers in Friday's loss to the Warriors.
Beasley shot 5-of-14 from the field but made five 3s, while Morris was more efficient as he went 5-of-8 from the field and added six dimes and two steals. Beasley has been the more reliable of the two reserve guards, holding top-160 value over the last couple of weeks.

Malik Beasley came off the bench on Monday and scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting while chipping in three rebounds, three assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.
Beasley has become one of the most reliable options for the Nuggets and his ability to generate offense at every level has come as a pleasant surprise. He's earned the trust of coach Malone and looks like he can still provide owners with value even though Gary Harris is starting.

Malik Beasley has been ejected from Wednesday's game against the Kings.
Beasley said the magic words and got the gate, but not before dropping 21 points, four rebounds, a steal and two triples. He's worth holding until Gary Harris gets back to full strength and might even maintain some value thereafter.

Malik Beasley continued his breakout season on Monday, putting up 20 points and four 3-pointers against the Heat.
Beasley has excelled with Gary Harris constantly injured this season, though his recent production is buoyed by shooting north of 55 percent since January began. We're not expecting that to last by any stretch of the imagination but Beasley is a must-own guy until the regression hits.

The Nuggets' wing players dropped a mixed bag in Wednesday's 130-135 loss to the Nets with Mallik Beasley staying hot and delivering 17 points (three 3s), while Will Barton was limited to three points on 1-of-6 shooting.
Beasley has been solid as a rock while starting for Gary Harris (adductor). Barton, on the other hand, is still getting his legs back with on and off performances, keeping a buy-low window for him slightly ajar.
