Rockets' Patrick Beverley breaks hand, likely out 4-6 weeks
The Rockets have been bitten again by the injury bug, this time losing their starting point guard to a broken hand.
Beverley, who has started 23 games this season for the Rockets, will be out through most of January as he recovers.
Beverley has been solid as Houston's starting point guard, providing a defensive intensity that seems to often be lacking with other players. He's a bulldog player that challenges opponents constantly. Without him, the Rockets will likely suffer some defensively. With him on the court this season, they're allowing 99.7 points per 100 possessions. Without him, 103.4.
The Rockets have some depth assuming Lin can get healthy with Aaron Brooks also in their backcourt. So while Beverley is definitely an impact player, they should be able to at least get by.
Beverley, 25, is averaging 9.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.3 assists this season.
