Shams Charania is reporting that a heated scene unfolded in the Lakers locker room after Saturday's loss where multiple veterans, including Michael Beasley, had "an emotionally-charged verbal exchange" with Luke Walton.
Walton reportedly extolled the virtues of playing unselfishly, when a few veterans decided to respond with some of their own commentary. Sam Amick of The Athletic mentioned JaVale McGee and Lance Stephenson as others who took issue with Walton, with McGee apparently the most angered. There could be some team-imposed discipline to come out of this, and it certainly won't help Walton's case amidst rumors that the LeBron camp would prefer a different coach. Ty Lue's still a free agent.

Michael Beasley drew the surprise start on Sunday night and responded with eight points (4-of-12 shooting), six rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 26 minutes.
This line goes totally against type, as Beasley is more of a hollow scorer who gets his buckets relatively efficiently. He's getting enough run with LeBron out to attract deep-league attention but we'd avoid Beasley if at all possible. Lance Stephenson also popped with 17 points, four assists, three triples and a steal on 7-of-10 from the field but he might be less of an asset than Beasley.

Michael Beasley will draw the start against the Suns alongside Ivica Zubac, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram.
The Lakers are officially beat-up as only Ingram is a regular starter for the team. It will be interesting to see how this game goes as both teams are missing key contributors.

Michael Beasley put up 15 points on Monday night, going 7-of-8 from the field with five rebounds, two assists and a block.
The blowout asterisk is prevalent here but Beasley will give the Lakers some individual scoring punch, which is a needed element while they're without all of their point guards. He's a fine scorer for deep-league use but we wouldn't trust him all that much.

Michael Beasley hurt his hand in Friday's loss to the Jazz and had to leave the game late but was able lead the Lakers' reserves with 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block.
X-rays thankfully came back negative and hopefully, Beasley will not be forced to miss too much time. He's been turning a few heads lately with some deep-league value performances. In his last five games, Beasley has been posting 13.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.

Michael Beasley made every minute of his time on the floor on Wednesday count, scoring 19 points in 19 minutes, adding two rebounds, four dimes, one triple and two blocks.
Beaze shot an efficient 9-of-13 from the field in an effective showing off the bench. This marks his third straight game of double-digit scoring, putting him on radars in 16-team leagues or deeper.

Micheal Beasley (personal) returned to action after missing 13 games, scoring six points on 2-of-3 shooting with four rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Knicks.
Beasley might carve out a low-end role or even get turned to in spurts if the Lakers get banged up, but there won't be any real fantasy value here.

Michael Beasley will be available for Friday's game after missing the last 13 games for personal reasons.
If Kyle Kuzma can't go, Beasley could definitely see significant time as an energy player. This could be a temporary run for Beasley with Kuzma potentially ready to play and LeBron's status uncertain.
