Posted Jan 31 2010 11:02PM

MIAMI (AP) -- Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers has a partially torn ligament in his left thumb and is out indefinitely.

Chalmers was hurt Friday in Detroit and sat out the Heat's 95-84 loss at Milwaukee on Saturday, the first game he's missed in his two-year career. An MRI exam Sunday confirmed the injury.

Also, forward Michael Beasley will be a game-time for Monday's game against the Bucks after further testing confirmed a hyperextended right knee.
