Rumor: Michael Beasley breaks wrist playing in China?

The exact details remain somewhat murky. But here’s what’s being reported by HoopChina: Michael Beasley may have a fractured left wrist.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: When it rains, it pours. Isn’t that so Mike Beasley?

First, the Minnesota Timberwolves drafted Derrick Williams, who plays the same position as Beasley, second overall in June‘s entry draft.

Second, Beasley was cited for marijuana possession after getting pulled over by Minnesota area police.

Third, Beasley was involved in a skirmish with a fan/heckler while playing in a streetball run. The incident was captured by cell-phone camera and is now a youtube favourite.   

And now there are reports Beasley broke his wrist playing in an exhibition game in China. The injury does not appear career threatening and Beasley, since NBA players are locked-out, isn’t in violation of his contract. He probably has  insurance, too.

Still, this should alert players about the risks of playing overseas with clubs or exhibition tours.
