Rockets' Patrick Beverley has right knee sprain, MRI on Monday
Gulp, Rockets fans. Patrick Beverley may have re-injured his right knee.
Patrick Beverley, who tore his meniscus in his right knee on March 27, has a right knee sprain and will have an MRI on Monday, the Rockets announced.
Beverley came up limping in overtime, but shrugged off trainers to remain in the game and continue playing before he fouled out. According to TNT, Beverley needed help to get off the court following the game.
Beverley injured the knee when he was running through a screen set at midcourt for LaMarcus Aldridge, who was called for an illegal pick, fouling him out. Beverley jumped up favoring the knee obviously, but stayed in.
For the Rockets, losing Beverley could be potentially devastating considering the Blazers have Damian Lillard on the other side, who torched Houston for 31 in Game 1.
