Michael Beasley has been bothered all season by a sprained pinkie finger on his shooting hand.
The injury gives some explanation for his woeful 35.6 percent shooting. "I can't really bend it," Beasley said. "It gets numb, and I get hit at least twice a game. I just go through that pain. I'll get through it ... I can't really grip the ball like I want to in my shooting hand. That's probably why I'm passing so much." He dished out a career-high nine assists on Friday, which is nice, but fantasy owners may have to get used to his dismal FG percentage.
