Grizzlies Waiting for Beasley to Make His Case

General manager Chris Wallace says (Michael) Beasley is one of six guys in training camp with a chance to show the Grizzlies what they’ve got and they’ll see where this goes. Wallace says there’s no depth chart for the regular season with Beasley’s name on it or an estimate of minutes.

“It’s up to him to show us, make the case for himself then we’ll see where this goes,” Wallace said. “We’re just at the beginning of it with training camp started, and obviously he’s someone that’s very talented … His career hasn’t gone the way he would’ve liked but this is the perfect place for him to rebound.”

“I think he’ll be tremendous playing at the elbow, playing pick and rolls,” (coach Dave) Joerger said. “He’s the kind of athlete that we don’t really have since the Rudy Gay trade.”

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
