Beasley still here, but he's not tonight at Utah

Michael Beasley has gone missing tonight.
Not because he was traded, but because that sore toe he injured Monday at Phoenix is too painful for him to play effectively against the Jazz.
He and Ricky Rubio will be inactive tonight for a Wolves team that will again start Luke Ridnour, Martell Webster, Nikola Pekovic, Kevin Love and Wes Johnson, but expect Kevin Love and Derrick Williams to play together a good bit tonight.
Rick Adelman discovered the last game against the Jazz that Williams matches up well against Paul Millsap and Love matches up well against Al Jefferson.
Tonight is the last of the three-game season series and the winner would win the first tiebreaker -- head-to-head matchup -- if the teams would tie in the playoff race.
