That hard fall you might have seen Mike Beasley take tonight in Miami is a bruised hip.

He fell hard after making a layup and ended up sprawled on the court in great pain.

Teammates Darko Milicic and Corey Brewer helped him to the locker room.

X-rays taken at the arena were negative and his injury was called a "left hip contusion" by a team representative.

That's bruised.

He cannot return the game whether he's healthy enough to or not because Kosta Koufos had to shoot his free throw for him after a foul was called on the play.

By NBA rules, that makes him done for the night.

The Heat lead 69-53 at the half on a night when LeBron James didn't score a field goal until the first half's final minute .
