Beasley to be game-time decision Friday

MIAMI (AP) — Heat

forward Michael Beasley has a bruised left thigh and is listed as a

game-time decision for Miami’s key game against the Chicago Bulls on

Friday night.

Beasley is Miami’s

second-leading scorer behind Dwyane Wade, averaging 15.3 points per

game. He got hit in the thigh in the third quarter of Wednesday’s win

against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Entering Thursday’s games, Miami held the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race, barely ahead of No. 9 Chicago.
