MILWAUKEE -- Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley missed his second consecutive game with a hyperextended right knee and guard Mario Chalmers was out with a sprained left thumb.

Both took part in the pregame shootaround before Saturday night's 95-84 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, but the team decided to play it safe and made them inactive.

Beasley had played in 105 consecutive games, including starting the first 45 games of this season. He was hurt in the first quarter of Miami's loss at Toronto on Wednesday night and did not play against the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.

Chalmers sprained his left thumb when he caught it in a jersey Friday night. Chalmers' streak of 128 consecutive games played has ended. He is averaging 7.2 points.
