ESPN

Michael Beasley's mother, Fatima Smith, died Sunday after a battle with cancer.

Los Angeles Lakers coach Luke Walton used his pregame media remarks before tipoff against the Memphis Grizzlies to send a message to his grieving player.

"I just wanted to send our love, our thoughts and our prayers to Michael Beasley and his family," Walton said. "They're going through a tough time. But we're thinking of you, we miss you and we love you."

Beasley, 29, shared a photo of his mother on his Instagram on Sunday morning and captioned the photo with an emoji of an angel.
