Michael Beasley Charity Game: Roster No Longer Includes Couple Of Timberwolves Teammates

Michael Beasley is hosting a charity game in Osseo, Minn., this weekend. Unfortunately the rosters for the Friday night exhibition game no longer features as many of his Minnesota Timberwolves teammates as it did when the event was originally planned.

The website for the game no longer lists Martell Webster or Wayne Ellington as attendees for the event and former Minnesota point guard Sebastian Telfair has also been removed from the list of those expected to play for charity.  There are still 19 partcipants listed, however, including Kevin Love, Derrick Williams, Wesley Johnson, John Wall, Kevin Durant and DeMarcus Cousins.

As mentioned in SB Nation Minnesota's original post on the game, the $60 ticket for entry will go to a good cause:

Tickets for the game start at $60 and can be purchased beginning at noon on Friday, Oct. 21, according to the game's website. Take into account that proceeds from the game will benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Greater Minneapolis Crisis Nursery, MAD Dads of Minneapolis and Minneapolis Urban League charities, however, and it makes the price of admission more worth it -- and the roster doesn't hurt that part, either.

Is anyone reading this planning to attend?
