Heat’s Beasley: Treatment Not From Punch

Heat_Michael_Beasley_2013KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The medical treatment Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley required after a preseason game against the Detroit Pistons wasn’t for a self-inflicted punch, the team said Friday.

Beasley needed treatment to reduce swelling above his eye following Thursday’s game against Detroit, and reports initially said the reason was because he struck himself in the face out of frustration for mistakes on the court.

Beasley said Friday he did hit himself as he ran back down the court during the third quarter of the win.
