Beverley (hamstring) played 26 minutes in Wednesday's series-ending 114-81 loss to the Warriors in Game 5, producing two points (1-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt), four rebounds, and two assists. The hamstring injury Beverley suffered in Game 4 didn't prevent him from suiting up Wednesday, but he was wholly ineffective in a listless series-ending loss for the Rockets. The same could be said for just about every player on the team save for James Harden, as the Rockets combined to shoot just 6-for-32 from three-point range, with Beverley's 0-for-3 mark from long range not even representing the worst of the lot. It's difficult to determine how much the lingering hamstring ailment may have impacted Beverley's performance, but with the Rockets now eliminated, the point guard will have plenty of time to recuperate before training camp begins in the fall.
Beverley (hamstring) said after practicing Tuesday that he'll play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Mark Berman of FOX 26 Houston (KRIV) reports. Beverley was limited to just 16 minutes in the Rockets' Game 4 loss Sunday after suffering the hamstring injury, and was subsequently held out of Monday's practice. It appears all the point guard needed was a day off, as he was back on the court Tuesday and looked to be no worse for the wear. With the Rockets facing elimination on the road Wednesday, expect Beverley to take on close to 30 minutes if he experiences no in-game setbacks with the hamstring.
Beverley (hamstring) took part in Tuesday's practice, Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports. Beverley departed Sunday's Game 4 against Golden State with a strained right hamstring and continues to be listed as day-to-day in advance of Game 5. His participation in practice is certainly a step in the right direction, but the team likely won't update his status until he can be evaluated at shootaround Wednesday morning. If Beverley is ultimately limited or held out, Jason Terry would be in line for increased minutes.
Beverley (hamstring) is considered day-to-day in advance of Wednesday's Game 5 against the Warriors, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports. Beverley tweaked his right hamstring during Sunday's blowout loss to the Warriors and did not return to the game after departing in the second quarter. The good news is he'll travel to Oakland with the team, but at this point his status for Game 5 is firmly up in the air. If he's ruled out or limited, look for Jason Terry, who played 27 minutes Sunday, to see increased time off the bench, with James Harden acting as the primary ball handler even more frequently.
Updating a previous report, Beverley (leg) will not return to Sunday's Game 4 against the Warriors, Jenny Dial Creech of the Houston Chronicle reports. Beverley was forced to exit Sunday's game in the second quarter with a leg strain and was originally listed as questionable to return. When the team came out for halftime warmups Beverley went straight to the bench and it was announced he was out, but no further information on his injury was provided. He'll finish on Sunday with two points (1-5 FGs, 0-3 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 16 minutes. Look for Jason Terry to see a minutes increase in Beverley's absence. Beverley should be considered day-to-day in the lead up to Wednesday's Game 5.
