MIAMI (AP) — Michael Beasley of the Miami Heat is being treated for depression-related issues at a Houston rehabilitation facility, a person briefed on the situation told The Associated Press on Monday.
Beasley checked into the facility last week, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of privacy concerns. It’s unknown how long Beasley will remain at the facility, or whether he will be available when the Heat open training camp on Sept. 28.
A photo of the No. 2 pick in the 2008 NBA draft was posted Friday to his Twitter account, in which Beasley displayed a new tattoo across his shoulders. The image also captured what appeared to be a small plastic bag on an adjacent table, the contents of which were unclear.
It’s unknown if Beasley was already in rehab when the photograph — and several comments, including “Feelin like it’s not worth livin!!!!!!! I’m done” and “I feel like the whole world is against me I can’t win for losin” — were posted on the feed.
