We will likely see less of Michael Beasley going forward, once Tim Hardaway Jr. returns to the New York Knicks’ starting line-up.
With New York Knicks’ starting small forward Tim Hardaway Jr. ready to come back any day now from his leg injury, this means that we might see less of Michael Beasley.
While talking to the media this week, Knicks’ head coach Jeff Hornacek hinted that Beasley will be on the floor less when Hardaway gets back.
“It’s how does certain guys who’ve now got an opportunity to play, they may not get to play anymore,’’ Hornacek said, via the New York Post. “The rotation might be a little different with Tim.”
As good as Beasley has been for the Knicks, his minutes will have to come down with Hardaway back. It’s unfortunate, but it’s what needs to happen, there just isn’t enough playing time for everyone.
Beasley has been a great offensive weapon for the Knicks, but Hardaway alongside Kristaps Porzingis is even better and they can always have Beasley come in if either of their top two stars struggle.
All we can hope for is that when Beasley does play, he makes the most of his time on the floor.
Comment below and gives us your thoughts on Beasley’s minutes possibly being cut down.
