According to Stadium's Shams Charania, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley has been suspended 12 games by the NBA as a result of an offseason incident that resulted in gun charges.

Earlier this month Beasley was sentenced to 120 days in jail after he pled guilty to one felony count of threats of violence. Beasley was allowed to serve his sentence after the NBA season but was subject to the NBA's personal code of conduct policy.

"I will take this time to reflect on my decisions," Beasley said in a statement. "I apologize to all the great fans out there who have supported me during this difficult time and I promise I will come back very soon as a better person and player."

Beasley has been averaging 20.5 points and 4.6 rebounds per game this season and is considered to be a candidate for the NBA's Most Improved Player Award.
