MINNEAPOLIS -- After suffering a foot sprain in Friday's 98-87 loss to Cleveland, Michael Beasley will not travel to the Timberwolves' next two games in Washington and Toronto.Coach Rick Adelman said after practice on Saturday he's unsure how he'll adjust his lineup to compensate for Beasley's absence."We're going to talk," Adelman said. "I don't know who it's going to be right now. It might be either Wesley (Johnson), it could be Derrick (Williams). We could talk about it. We'll decide tomorrow."Beasley, who had been playing with a lacerated finger he injured against Dallas last Sunday, had been inconsistent on the year. After scoring a season-high 24 points in Minnesota's opener against Oklahoma City, Beasley has seen his average fall to 12.9 points on the season."He's definitely a scoring punch for us, and even though he's been struggling lately with his shot, everybody still has to be more aggressive but continue to do what you can do and not try to do too much," Anthony Tolliver said of Beasley and his injury.Adelman has no shortage of options when it comes to replacing Beasley, and he discussed several on Saturday. He could move shooting guard Wes Johnson into Beasley's spot at small forward, putting Johnson back into his college position. He could also slot rookie Derrick Williams into Beasley's spot. But for now, Adelman isn't sure which, if any, of these options he'll choose."I'd consider anything at this point," Adelman said.Follow Joan Niesen on Twitter.
