On the same day that Houston Rockets big man Dwight Howard (right knee injury) was expected to play for the first time since Jan. 23, point guard Patrick Beverley saw his season potentially come to an end. According to a person with knowledge of his situation, Beverley has a torn ligament in his left wrist. The Rockets point guard will have further discussions on his treatment and the next step after seven to 10 days, but the prospect of him returning to the Rockets before season's end remains in play. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the team had not yet announced a diagnosis. USA Today Sports

The Rockets, always a factor at the deadline, are aggressively pursuing a deal with Phoenix for point guard Goran Dragic, league sources say. Such a deal would likely center around Rockets guard Patrick Beverley; otherwise, Dragic, a prospective free agent, would be stuck in the same three-guard rotation that he finds himself involved with in Phoenix. While rival executives remain convinced that the Suns prefer to move Isaiah Thomas out of their three-headed backcourt, they may not have a choice. A league source confirmed that Dragic's agent, Bill Duffy, informed the Suns Tuesday night that he would not re-sign with Phoenix this summer. And the Rockets are not on Dragic's short list of teams to which he prefers to be traded, the source said. CBSSports.com

Pat Beverley was introduced as a defensive specialist. Even when he won the Skills Challenge on Saturday, he was described by TNT’s Ernie Johnson as “an irritant.” But he was a winner based on skills. In some ways, that should not have been a surprise. The Skills challenge has two kinds of shots, layups and 3-pointers, the shots the Rockets take more often than any team, and no mid-range jumper. So when Beverley misfired his passes in the semifinals and finals, falling far behind Jeff Teague and then Brandon Knight, he made his first 3-pointer in each round while they were still missing. With that, he hoped to take his success in Brooklyn back to Houston. “Most of all, I came out here to have fun,” Beverley said. “I hope Coach (Kevin) McHale is watching and maybe I can get more plays now.
