BREAKING: Yahoo! Sports reporting Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley checks into Houston-area rehabilitation facility

The perverbial shoe has dropped, and according to reports from Yahoo! Sports, Michael Beasley has checked into a drug rehabilitation facility near Houston. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Ira Winderman is reporting that the Miami Heat have been in contact with Beasley since the TwitPic controversy erupted. It's not clear at this time how long Beasley will stay at the facility. More as this story develops. UPDATE: More of the story is out now, and it appears that the visit to rehab isn't just for drugs. The thing that concerned me about Beasley's Twitter stream wasn't the baggie on the vanity, but the posts afterwards which basically screamed "I give up." John Lucas is now helping Beasley, so hopefully he'll be able to rally. I'll have more on Beasley sometime before tomorrow morning, but I think my feeling is pretty different from the general public at this moment.
