After trying a second time on the eve of Game 1, Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley couldn’t find the strength and mobility in his left wrist to believe there exists a chance that he can return in the Western Conference finals, league sources told Yahoo Sports. “It’s a no-go for the series,” a league source told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday. “He’s done trying.” Beverley worked out twice Monday in the Bay Area, but a second trip to the gym Monday night convinced him to abandon hope for this series, which begins Tuesday night.

The Houston Rockets are operating under the premise that perimeter defensive ace Patrick Beverley, out since March with a torn ligament in his left wrist, is unlikely to play in the forthcoming Western Conference finals, according to league sources. Beverley is scheduled to have his cast removed in coming days and says he's hopeful of being cleared to play, but sources told ES‎PN.com that the Rockets are pessimistic about Beverley healing sufficiently quickly to return in this round against the 67-win Golden State Warriors.

Around Rondo, the energy is toxic. The Rockets' and Mavericks' interests intersect everywhere, including with the trade pursuit for Rondo in December. Rondo's agent never wanted Rondo in Houston, partly because it would've cost another client, Patrick Beverley, his job and payday to re-sign with the Rockets this summer. In the end, the Rockets kept bidding on Rondo to try to push the price higher for the Mavericks, which was ultimately unsuccessful. Yahoo! Sports

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
