NBA rumors: Patrick Beverley to miss time with injured knee

More on Patrick Beverley Injury

Farbod Esnaashari: Patrick Beverley is listed as QUESTIONABLE for Game 1 against the Nuggets. Take Note: Doc Rivers said he expects to see him play.
Andrew Greif: Clippers forwards Paul George (hamstring) and Kawhi Leonard (left knee injury management) will *not* play tonight in Atlanta, per the team. Pat Beverley, who left last night’s win in Dallas with a sore right groin, is “doubtful” to play.
LA Clippers guard Patrick Beverley is expected to miss a few games with a right wrist sprain, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski The Clippers already ruled out Beverley for Tuesday afternoon's game at Sacramento due to the injury the point guard suffered Saturday during a 120-107 loss to Utah.
Rivers was concerned Beverley's injury could keep him out for more games. Beverley averages 8 points and 6 rebounds this season. "We knew there was no break, but that doesn't mean he is going to be out or not," Rivers said Saturday after the game. "... He clearly felt like he could not even grab the ball, so that is not a good sign." "I'm concerned a little bit about what the injury is," Rivers added.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Clippers guard Patrick Beverley is expected to miss a few games with his right wrist sprain, league sources tell ESPN.
Beverley immediately took himself out of the game after taking a spill on his right arm while attempting a driving layup against Rudy Gobert with 10:15 left in the third quarter. While Beverley returned and started the fourth quarter after undergoing X-rays on his wrist, he checked out with 8:06 left and did not return. Beverley would not discuss his injury with reporters afterward. "We knew there was no break, but that doesn't mean he is going to be out or not," Rivers said. "It could be a bruise, it could be anything. He clearly felt like he could not even grab the ball, so that is not a good sign."
Mark Medina: Clippers listing Kawhi Leonard and Patrick Beverley as questionable for tomorrow vs OKC. FWIW, Doc Rivers said that Kawhi “most definitely” will play tomorrow but we’ll see
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.

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.'

"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.

"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."

Because of the secretive nature of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame, nobody can pinpoint why Chris Webber hasn’t gotten the nod yet. “Yes it has bothered me but it’s not something that’s made me bitter or something you think about all the time,” Webber told Yahoo Sports. “The validation of the best players that have ever played in the world has been enough for me. Every year around this time, you get that call, right after that call you get legends calling you. You get to reminiscing with them about disappointments in their lives.”
“First it’s about business and access to individuals who are qualified,” Webber said. “And giving access to a community that’s so unfairly targeted by racist laws. Hopefully, there’s a freedom with that. I’ve seen families devastated by a plant that can cause so much healing and restoration. And now that others are trying to take advantage of it.”
