When Rockets starting point guard Pat Beverley broke his hand in Detroit versus the Pistons on December 21, the initial word was surgery was needed and he’d miss four-to-six weeks of action. Surgery was successful and it’s approaching the fourth full week since the injury occurred. So naturally Beverley is saying he expects to be back very soon. “I went to the doctor (on Monday) and he said I’ll be back very soon,” Beverley told SportsTalk 790 on Tuesday, during his weekly radio appearance. “I’m playing before the 22nd, so that’s good news. I’m pretty excited about that.” CSN Houston

Chandler Parsons was asked if the players had been told who the starters would be and he sounded almost surprised that McHale had not shared that with the media. "I don’t know why it’s a big surprise," Parsons said. “It’s the same as how the preseason ended.” That means Patrick Beverley will not only make his first opening night roster, he'll be making his first opening night start. “I haven’t had the fortune to play in the NBA on opening night,” Beverley said. “It’s going to be my first. I’m definitely excited.” CSN Houston

Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley, who shared time in the backcourt rotation with Harden and Jeremy Lin last season, already envisions Howard's immediate impact. "Everybody knows he's the premier big man in the league," Beverley said. "I'm glad [his decision] wasn't prolonged. The inside-out [dynamic] with him and James, I think, is going to be perfect. It's going to be fun. If you add Dwight, it's going to be a big boost. But no one has a crystal ball. Everything takes preparation and hard work and dedication, and that's what we're going to have to do." ESPN.com

The Houston Rockets obviously aren't all the way out of OKC's lives, given how intertwined these franchises will be for the foreseeable future after the late October blockbuster deal that made Harden a Rocket and the sideline rush from Houston's Patrick Beverley that left Westbrook with a season-ending knee injury. The Thunder were nonetheless thrilled late Friday night to finally get away from them, at least for the next few months, by scrapping to a 103-94 triumph at Toyota Center that ended a costly, agonizing series in six games. "I was starting to hate those guys," Kevin Durant admitted at the post-game podium, paying tribute to the Rockets' stubborn resilience but also revealing a measure of the tension that has built up over the past two weeks and, really, these last six months. "I was starting to hate every one of them guys on their team. That's what happens in a series ... I'm sure they felt the same way about us." ESPN.com
