Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch said Friday that Beverley will be "re-evaluated" in a couple weeks after injuring his groin in Wednesday's 113-101 win over the Heat, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Before suffering the injury early in Wednesday's contest, the veteran guard had enjoyed a strong start to the season with averages of 8.9 points, 5.1 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.1 blocks, 1.0 three-pointers and 0.9 steals across 28.5 minutes per contest in his first 11 starts. Given the fact that he won't even be re-evaluated until early December, Beverley could be at real risk of being sidelined through the middle of next month, if not longer. Beverley's absence should allow D'Angelo Russell to log more run at point guard rather than off the ball, while Malik Beasley and Jordan McLaughlin will likely see the largest upticks in playing time, even if neither ends up replacing Beverley in the starting five.
