More on Patrick Beverley Injury

Andrew Greif: Patrick Beverley (hip) and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) are listed as doubtful to play vs. Golden State tomorrow. And last I’d heard, team is unsure whether JaMychal Green (baby) will be able to make it.
His voice on the court was missed for the second consecutive game because a right hip pointer kept Patrick Beverley out of action for the Clippers. He is considered the heart and soul of the Clippers, their engine that makes them go, but he cannot go right now because his body first betrayed Beverley in a game against Minnesota on March 26. The Clippers have two games left in the regular season, at Golden State Sunday and at Staples Center against the Utah Jazz Monday, and then it’s on to the playoffs next week.
“It’s an injury of concern. It’s not serious,” said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who mentioned that Beverley participated in the team’s shoot-around Friday. “But it is concerning. He hasn’t played. We don’t know if he’ll play next game either. So, it’s an injury of concern, but nothing that I think is that serious. He will play in the playoffs. I’ll say that.”
When Beverley has been out, the Clippers miss his energy, enthusiasm and ability to hold all his teammates accountable. “There’s definitely a trend when he’s not on our floor,” Rivers said. “There’s no doubt about that. That’s why I kind of enjoy not having him right now because … Pat’s not going to play 48 minutes and his spirit has to become just our spirit in general. So I think this was a good lesson, good test for us.”
Andrew Greif: Doc Rivers says Pat Beverley’s hip pointer is an “injury of concern” — he won’t play tonight — but that he will play in the playoffs.
Tomer Azarly: LA #Clippers' Patrick Beverley on returning from injury - "I’m really ready. I like to go out there, put my game on the line & that’s more than just talking. I’m feeling really, really strong, I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in my life & we’re going to see soon."

Q: How did you battle back from your injury and how is rehab coming along? Patrick Beverley: Rehab is fine — over and done with. I got cleared about two months ago by Dr. Lowe. (I was) coming from a season where I (was) playing, arguably, the best basketball I've ever played in my life. (I had) a career high in points (and) a career high in steals. (It was) an unfortunate situation, but everything happens for a reason. It forced me to get stronger, mentally and physically. I'm ready to go.
Three months ahead of schedule, after microfracture and meniscus surgery on his right knee, LA Clippers point guard Patrick Beverley has been cleared to return to full basketball activities, his doctor told ESPN. Dr. Walter Lowe, professor and chair of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at the University of Texas Medical Center, called the speed of Beverley's rehabilitation "remarkable."
Beverley had season-ending surgery on Nov. 22 and had been expected to need a full nine months before receiving Thursday's medical clearance. "I saw Pat [Thursday] and ordered a new MRI approximately six months out from his microfracture biocartilage repair and lateral meniscus repair," Lowe told ESPN in a statement. "His recovery has been remarkable and I have cleared him to return to all basketball activities. This speedy recovery is a testament to Pat's diligence to the comprehensive rehabilitation program between Houston and LA."
“I’m running, I’m shooting, I’m jumping, I’m ball-handling, doing defensive slides,” said Beverley. “I mean, I feel ready, but I guess everyone else is thinking long-term. I wanted to come back like 4-or-5 games ago, but everyone’s thinking long-term. Of course, I’m not a doctor. They get paid to do what they do and give me the best advice they possibly can, and the best advice is longevity. I can’t argue with that.” He also said he expects to be fully ready and back to his old self by training camp, which is set to take place in Hawaii for the second-straight year. “Hell yeah [I’ll be ready]!” said Beverley. “120%! I feel strong as sh*t. I’ve been doing everything, so we’ll just see.”
Tomer Azarly: #Clippers Patrick Beverley tells @Farbod_E and I - 'I'm ahead of schedule. Right now, I'm on the treadmill, been doing some single leg stuff, some step up, some defensive slides, squatting. I think next month i start jumping a little bit, and we'll see how it goes from there.'

Beverley has missed five straight games with a sore right knee. He has averaged 12.9 points, three assists and three rebounds for the Clippers this season. Los Angeles has struggled without its opening-night backcourt of Beverley and rookie Milos Teodosic. As Beverley plans his return on Monday, Teodosic's return is still uncertain. He suffered an injury to his left plantar fascia in October and isn't expected back in the near future.

The Rockets visit Oklahoma City on Wednesday and host Portland Thursday. Mike D'Antoni said the Rockets have been cautious with Beverley's return. "Well you always have to guard against Pat coming back to quick," D'Antoni said. "That's what he does, but our training staff and our doctors, are all over it and when they deem him ready to go, he'll play. You may have to hold him back but they've been doing that."
Houston Rockets starting guard Patrick Beverley said he practiced Friday and expects to return next week from left knee surgery. Beverley didn't say which game would be his season debut in, but he proclaimed he's completely healthy. The Rockets' first game next week is Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers. "I feel very good, excited, can't wait to play," Beverley said Saturday. "I can't wait to play with my teammates. I missed them a lot. I missed being on the road and team camaraderie a lot. I missed playing basketball and missed competing."

Andrew Bogut via a note posted on social media informed that he will not re-sign with the Sydney Kings. The 2015 NBA champion still hopes to return, as he previously admitted that the Olympic Games moved to 2021 can keep him active for one more season. “I have decided not to sign with the Sydney Kings or any professional sporting team for that matter for the time being,” he wrote, “With everything going on the world the future does not look too clear, most notably in regards to sporting leagues worldwide.”

Speaking on “The JJ Redick Podcast” on The Ringer, the Pelicans sharpshooter revealed what he’s heard about the NBA’s proposed schedule format. “The scenario I’ve heard…the top six teams are basically locked. Those seeds are locked. And they basically…they either scrimmage or play games that don’t mean anything. And then seeds seven through 11 or seven through 12 in both conferences play for seeds seven and eight,” Redick explained.
The Nets announced Saturday they will open HSS Training Center for voluntary player workouts May 26. The Knicks, when contacted by The Post, did not have a comment on the news. According to a source, the Knicks are still receiving clarification from the NBA. Twenty-one teams have opened their facilities for voluntary workouts after the NBA announced it would allow franchises to do so in accordance with their local government.

However, the March 11 shutdown made it impossible for Durant to maintain or escalate that routine. While players are all in the same boat having had three months off when training camp opens in late June, Durant was not at the point of being ready for a game when everything stopped. Scrimmaging five-on-five was a key part of the rehab process at that stage, sources told The Post, and that ground to a halt.

League sources believe a good chance exists that a downsized combine complete with live interviews for the elite prospects will occur sometime in August or September once the draft is officially postponed from June 25. Prohm said he is hopeful that happens for Haliburton, an Oshkosh, Wisc., native who is training in Milwaukee. “He’s off-the-charts mature, invested in the university, all about winning and the team,’’ Prohm said. “His character and maturity is very high.”
Ex-NBA player Kermit Washington just got denied HARD — with a judge rejecting his request for early prison release over fears he could catch the ‘rona. As we previously reported, the 68-year-old former NBA All-Star is serving 6 years in prison for running a bogus charity scheme in which he stole around $1 MILLION that was supposed to help starving and HIV positive children in Africa. Back in April, Washington filed court docs begging the judge for an early release — citing health concerns stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

We were able to get our hands on a few minutes of Rivers’ presentation to the Colts team, which you can watch in its entirety above. But here’s what he had to say in full about what he’s learned over the years about championship teams: » “I don’t think people understand that … I think people think champions don’t get hit. Like, you know, I always use boxing, because boxing, for whatever reason, my dad was a big boxing fan, and so I grew up watching boxing matches, and the biggest misnomer is that champions only hit. It’s just not true. Champions get hit all the time. And then it comes to a point — how many times are you willing to get hit and keep moving forward and still punch, so you can win? That’s what it’s gonna come down to: you are going to get hit. You just are. Alright? But you have to be willing to take the punches, you have to be willing to keep moving forward and keep going.”

After the Warriors moved on from Mark Jackson as head coach in 2014, the search narrowed on two final candidates: former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy and then-TNT broadcaster Steve Kerr. Former Warriors assistant general manager Travis Schlenk was part of the team that interviewed both contenders and says the front office at one point wasn’t sure they’d even get a chance to sit down with Kerr during the process.
“Steve was being courted very hard by Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks,” Schlenk said on 95.7 The Game last week. “And at one point during the process, it felt like that’s where he was going to go. And so we didn’t think that we were going to even have an opportunity to really sit down and talk with Steve. And I believe it was while we were meeting with Stan down in Orlando, that Steve called Bob and said he kinda had a change of heart and he wanted to meet with us.”
While most of the responses have been incredibly positive, Michael’s 27-year-old daughter, Jasmine Jordan, exclusively tells ET that her dad “hasn’t paid any attention” to what people are saying about it on social media, including “all the new memes/gifs being created.” In addition to Jasmine, Michael shares two sons, Jeffrey, 31, and Marcus, 29, with ex-wife Juanita Vanoy, and 6-year-old twins Victoria and Isabel with Yvette Prieto, whom he married in 2013.

“We are all very happy to see how successful the doc has been and to see athletes, fans, new fans etcetera,” Jasmine says. “Obviously with the coronavirus, we all watched separately versus watching together, but we had a running group text thread.” “We would talk about what was happening, laugh at seeing our younger selves in some of the episodes and ask my dad any questions we might’ve had,” she adds.
One person that was noticeably absent from the 10-part docuseries was Jasmine’s mother, Juanita. Jasmine tells ET that her mom was not in it “simply because she already lived it, of course.” “The doc’s focus was on the team as a whole and their last season,” she said, referencing her dad’s sixth NBA championship with the Bulls in 1998. “My dad is a major focal point, obviously, but it still was about the team as a whole in their final run together, so that’s why she wasn’t in it.”

Caboclo admits he used Fraschila’s quote as motivation for a period, but ESPN’s international basketball guru wasn’t exactly wrong. Caboclo spent most of the next four years developing with Toronto’s D League affiliate, helping that squad win a D League title in ’17 but playing just 25 games for an ascending Raptors team over the course of his rookie contract. “When I got on the Raptors, Coach [Dwane] Casey was playing 7 or 8 players a game. They weren’t looking to me very much,” Caboclo told Sports Illustrated over a recent Zoom call. “They said I was going to play every season, but I really didn’t play most of the time. I could see how it was going.”
After Memphis signed him away from Rio Grande in January, Caboclo played in 34 games (19 starts) and averaged 8.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 36.9% from three-point range in 23.5 minutes per contest—all career-high marks. “They welcomed me from the first day. Marc Gasol was there, he treated me very well before he was traded,” Caboclo said. “The coaches were amazing and always supported players with everything we needed. Memphis was a great place for me.”
