Beverley (knee) has been cleared to return to full basketball activities, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The point guard was ruled out for the season back in late-November after appearing in only 11 games, and he underwent a procedure on Nov. 22 that was expected to sideline him for up to nine months. However, Beverley's rehab progressed much more quickly than expected, with his doctor, Walter Lowe, calling the process "remarkable." "I saw Pat [Thursday] and ordered a new MRI approximately six months out from his microfracture biocartilage repair and lateral meniscus repair," Lowe said. "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." Obviously, this is positive news for the Clippers, who were among the most injury-riddled teams in the league in 2017-18. Los Angeles has a team option to retain Beverley for $5 million, which they'll likely exercise, unless they opt to negotiate a longer-term extension with the 29-year-old.
Beverley underwent surgery to repair a microfracture and meniscus injury to his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Beverley's first season with the Clippers ends in disappointing fashion, as the defensive-minded point guard played just 11 games before succumbing to injury. He finished with averages of 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.2 three-pointers across 30.4 minutes, while shooting 40.3 percent from the field and 40 percent from the three-point line. After undergoing surgery Wednesday, Beverley will start the long road to recovery and he should be back with the Clippers next season for the final year of his contract despite it being non-guaranteed. However, he's expected to need nine months to make a full recovery, so that could mean he's limited at the start of training camp. With Beverley out, Sindarius Thornwell should continue to start for the time being, though once Milos Teodosic (foot) is cleared to play, it will be Teodosic's spot to lose moving forward. Teodosic, once healthy, and Austin Rivers will both soak up the majority of Beverley's minutes.
Beverley continues to deal with a right knee injury and is out indefinitely, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Beverley had missed five straight games because of the knee injury, but returned to action Monday against the Knicks, playing 22 minutes and posting nine points, six rebounds and two assists. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Beverley reportedly underwent a recent procedure on the knee to deal with the lingering issue and he'll now be shut down for the immediate future. With Milos Teodosic (foot) still out as well, the Clippers will likely turn back to Sindarius Thornwell in the backcourt alongside Austin Rivers. Thornwell has already picked up five starts this season in relief, averaging 8.4 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 29.5 minutes. The Clippers haven't provided any sort of timetable for Beverley, but it sounds like this absence could potentially last well into December.
Beverley (knee) recorded nine points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one blocks in just 22 minutes during Monday's 107-85 loss to the Knicks. Beverley returned from a five-game absence, playing limited minutes in a blow-out loss. The fact he was playing at all is a good sign for owners, and the low minutes may have been due in part to the nature of the scoreline as well as a minutes restriction. He looked healthy when he was on the floor, and should be fine to roll out in your lineups for the Clippers next game against the Hawks on Wednesday.
Beverley (knee) has been cleared to play Monday against the Knicks, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports. After missing the previous two games with a sore right knee, Beverley will return to action Monday, but at this point it's unclear if he'll start. If Doc Rivers does re-insert him into the lineup, rookie second-rounder Sindarius Thornwell would shift to the bench.
