Michael Beasley said that an off-season stay in a rehabilitation facility was his "lowest hour," denied that he has a substance-abuse problem and apologized Friday to the Miami Heat organization. Beasley would not reveal any details of the treatment he received in Houston, other than acknowledging that he became "pretty upset" upon learning his stay would be considerably longer than first planned. That anger, he said, sparked a wave of troubling messages posted on his now-closed Twitter feed.

MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Michael Beasley stepped off the plane to begin his new life at Kansas State last summer carrying nothing but his cellphone and a charger. "He had no extra clothes, no bag, no anything. His charger was stuffed in his pocket with the cord hanging out," said his mother, Fatima Smith. "But they were so happy to see him, they didn't care if he came out here with his boxers on."

The Lakers can forget about trying to get Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard. The Lakers won't get him before Thursday's trade deadline at noon PDT. Nor will they get him during the free agency signing period in July. ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard first reported that Howard has waived his early termination option and will stay with the Magic through the 2012-13 season. That has an instant trickle effect on the Lakers' front-office dealings. One, it's safe to say Lakers center Andrew Bynum will remain a Laker.

Suns 92 - Lakers 86 (end of regulation) The Lakers (20-26) lost a game they needed to win, falling to the Suns (16-30) in Phoenix with a fourth-quarter collapse. Where the lead was once 13, the Lakers were stuck on 78 points for almost four-full minutes. The Suns had closed within five when Dwight Howard re-aggravated his injured right shoulder, clearly in a significant amount of pain Howard would not return and the Lakers looked frazzled, especially defensively. Michael Beasley had a huge night with 27 points on 12-20 shooting, along with five steals. Beasley's lay-up under pressure with 42.5 seconds left proved to be the game winner.
