HoopsHype Patrick Beverley rumors


April 11, 2015 Updates

Beverley will be a restricted free agent this summer. While his immediate goal is to return in time to help during the playoffs, Beverley hopes to continue playing for the Rockets. "My focus is getting healthy and getting back out there," Beverley said. "When I first got the surgery and some people said it was a season-ending injury, of course you're forced to think about that. I want to be in Houston. I want to be a part of this whole thing that we've built since me and James first got here, but that's not under my control. That's up to my agent and (general manager) Daryl Morey of the Rockets. It's going to be interesting this summer. I'm just happy I put myself in a position where I can play basketball and earn enough money to take care of my family." FOX 26 Sports

Houston Rockets guard Pat Beverley is hopeful he will recover from left wrist surgery in time to help the Rockets in the playoffs if they are still alive. The Rockets announced Beverley would miss the remainder of the 2014-15 (regular) season, but did not address the possibility he could return at some point during the playoffs. "Very strong possibility," Beverley said in an interview with FOX26 Sports. "Very strong. Let's hope everything goes right. I don't care about the pain. I can play through pain. I've been playing through all type of stuff the whole year, so I can play with the pain. I just have to get this cast off. When the cast comes off May 18, May 20th, wrap it up with tape and (I'll) be good to go. I don't care how weak it is. I don't care how strong it is. I don't care about that. As soon as this cast is off I'm back to business." FOX 26 Sports

"Time is not really on my side right now," Beverley said. "Hopefully, the Rockets, we do what we need to do and hopefully I'll be back at the end of the playoffs. If this injury happened a month ago or two months ago, then it's something different, but it happened right before the playoffs. So it's just a waiting process. I guess my cast off the 18th or the 20th, after that I'm not going to be that strong, but I will be healed. If we do what we need to do hopefully I come back like Willis Reed." FOX 26 Sports

After surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist on Tuesday morning, Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley will require four months of recovery, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Beverley’s ligament had to be reattached, a procedure that crushed a fleeting hope before the surgery that a two-month recovery period could’ve had Beverley back for the Western Conference Finals – if the Rockets advanced that far.

Beverley's agent, Kevin Bradbury, told FOX26 Sports Beverley had no choice but to opt for surgery. "After evaluations from several different doctors to analyze the situation for Pat, because his priority was first and foremost to try and play and help his team improve its season for the playoffs and obviously to win a championship ultimately in Houston, all of the results came back and there was no way around surgery," Bradbury said. "He had to have it done. Otherwise, the long-term implications on his body and his health would have not been as positive as they would be by having the surgery immediately." FOX 26 Sports
