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.

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.”

Calvin Watkins: Rockets guard Patrick Beverley’s return from left knee surgery is approaching. Beverley won’t be available for Monday’s game against the 76ers but a return at midweek is possible. 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.”

Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, sidelining him for three weeks, league sources told The Vertical. Beverley will undergo the procedure early next week in Houston, league sources said. The loss of Beverley will move Eric Gordon into the Rockets’ starting backcourt with All-Star James Harden. The Rockets signed Gordon to a four-year, $53 million free-agent deal in July.
