    Michael Beasley will not return to the team after testing positive for COVID-19.

    Shams Charania of The Athletic reports Beasley will not rejoin the team in Orlando after a positive COVID-19 test. Brookyln, already low on available players, will search for a replacement prior to the NBA restart.

    According to multiple reports, Michael Beasley has left the Orlando bubble after testing positive for COVID-19.

    Beasley was initially signed as a replacement player for the thinned-out Nets, but his place on the roster is now in question. Brooklyn needs bodies, and Beasley, who already is facing a five-game suspension, may not be able to get up to speed in time between his departure, quarantine, return and re-quarantine. Details are limited at this point but if Beasley tested positive after getting to Disney World, it should be of major concern to the NBA.

    The Nets have officially signed Michael Beasley as a Substitute Player for the NBA restart in Orlando.

    The Nets have lost more players than any other team that is heading to Orlando so it is very important for them to add depth ahead of July 30. Beasley will have to serve his five-game suspension he received in August of 2019 but could see some minutes in the the last few games with the hopes to join a team ahead of the 2020-21 season. He last played in the Chinese Basketball Association.

    According to Shams Charania, Michael Beasley could be making a return to the NBA after moving closer to a deal with the Nets.

    The Nets are sorely undermanned given the high number of their players who have tested positive for the Coronavirus. Beasley last played in the league for the Pistons in 2019 and could provide some limited, albeit versatile production off the bench.

    The Shanxi Loongs of the Chinese Basketball Association are trying to bring Michael Beasley back to China.

    Beasley agreed to terms with the Pistons last month but he never officially signed with them as the team opted to go with Joe Johnson instead. Beasley has already played in China with Shanghai, Shandong and last year with Guangdong averaging 22.4 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists.

    The Pistons have waived Michael Beasley on Thursday following the signing of Joe Johnson.

    Beasley's fate was sealed when the Pistons reached an agreement with Johnson a short while ago. Beasley will look to latch on elsewhere, though his five-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy could pose an issue.

    According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, forward Michael Beasley has agreed to a one-year deal with the Pistons.

    Beasley was initially leaning towards accepting a deal in China, but a stint with the Pistons should obviously trump that. He will likely be the primary backup of Blake Griffin. Look to him as a DFS punt play on days where Griffin sits out due to load management.

    Michael Beasley is reportedly leaning towards accepting an offer in China that is worth approximately $5 million, according to Stadium's Jeff Goodman.

    Beasley was just suspended for five games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy, but he was highly unlikely to open the year in the NBA anyway. He finished last season in China after being waived by the Clippers and his NBA career might've already seen its final chapter.

    The NBA has suspended free agent Michael Beasley for five games due to a violation of the league's anti-drug policy.

    It is unclear whether Beasley will return to the NBA this season after finishing last year in the CBA. The news of this suspension will only further prevent teams from adding the former second overall pick from 2008. He can be ignored from a fantasy perspective.

    Ex-Lakers forward Michael Beasley is finalizing a deal to play with Guangdong Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Beasley returns to a league he is familiar with after an up and down season with the Lakers where he failed to produce consistently. It’s the smart thing to do since the Chinese team is offering him a lucrative deal and we wouldn’t expect to see him play again in the NBA, at least this season. Drop him if you haven’t already.

    Michael Beasley has been waived by the Los Angeles Clippers.

    This came as no surprise given the team's focus on youth and rebuilding at this point. Beasley might land another gig once he clears waivers but is not likely to ping on fantasy radars. Leave him on the wire for now.

    The Clippers are expected to waive Michael Beasley, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

    Beasley would've factored into the power forward mix for LA but there's little upside in having him around considering their current standing in the playoff picture, even behind the brittle Danilo Gallinari. We'll see if Beasley can find a new landing spot, though his recent spat with Luke Walton might not help his chances.

    Michael Beasley has been traded to the Clippers.

    He'll have to move his stuff all the way across the hall. Beasley might help the Clippers at the tail end of their power forward rotation but isn't going to play enough to matter in most fantasy leagues. The door's certainly open for a must-add period if Danilo Gallinari gets hurt again, however.

    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.
