Hard to know how accurate a report this is right now, but HoopChina reports that Michael Beasley suffered a wrist injury Sunday during the China Championships with it possibly being a broken wrist.

Want a reason to maybe not play overseas, NBA players? Well there it is.

If Beasley did indeed break his wrist, he's almost surely going to miss the start of the 2011-12 season. Assuming of course that the 2011-12 season starts on time, which as of right now appears to be quite the assumption.

Beasley was in China with Paul Pierce playing a Chinese team in some exhibition thing. Beasley had scored 32 points when the injury happened. According to the report, he injured it during the game but it felt much worse the next morning (being Monday).

Nothing is entirely clear at this point but it seems sure that Beasley injured his wrist in some regard Sunday night. Whether that's a break, a tear, a sprain or whatever, we'll have to wait and see a bit. The main thing to take is how this could send a bit of a wake up call to the players hooping all over the place. I doubt it will stop anyone, but injury is indeed a real possibility. To this point, nobody had been bitten by it, but injuries can happen at any time.

Who cares!?!?!?!?   Pro ball has been ruined by so many dipshits going pro and teams paying for them...  Want to see teams take the smart players and leave the athletes behind, we would see a better game!!  The rookie pro's are crap and I hope we see the lockout last a really long time!  Your very best "leaving early" LeBron (who is a great athlete) will never be a Havlicek and still doesn't understand the game...  F* the Pro's,  why take these kids that can jump out of the gym yet have no clue how to play...
