Video: Michael Beasley suffers game-ending injury, still calls for ball

Michael Beasley joined Gordon Hayward, Draymond Green, and Jeremy Lin in a growing list of NBA players going down due to injuries in their season openers.

The veteran forward lasted just one minute in his New York Knicks debut against the Oklahoma City Thunder before suffering an ankle injury which ruled him out for the rest of the game.

In a video posted by Taylor Pate, Michael Beasley was seen hobbling down the court and into the corner shortly after sustaining the ankle injury. But despite being in obvious pain and on one foot, the Knicks forward still appeared to be calling for the ball from his teammates.

Of course, another interpretation of that clip would be that Beasley’s raising his hand up to call the attention of the bench to get subbed out. But the thought of a hobbled Beasley still looking to get another shot up is definitely more amusing.

On a more serious note, though, potentially losing Michael Beasley for a significant amount of time could be a blow for the Knicks, who struggled to create much offense against the Thunder. Apart from Kristaps Porzingis, who finished with 31 points, Enes Kanter was the only other Knick to top double-digits in scoring.
