Patrick Beverley Out Indefinitely With Torn Meniscus

by March 28, 2014

According to the agent of Houston Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley, the fireplug has a torn meniscus, and is considered out indefinitely. Per the Houston Chronicle:

“He has a torn meniscus, we’re not 100 percent sure how bad it is or what action we will take,” his agent Kevin Bradbury said. “We’re going to get to the docs and determine what’s best for Pat and for the organization. We should have some clarity early next week.

“I would say out indefinitely until we know more.”

Rockets coach Kevin McHale said it would be 7-10 days before the team would know a timetable for Beverley’s return.

Beverley injured his knee in the Rockets’ win over the 76ers on Thursday.

With Beverley out, Jeremy Lin would move back into the starting point guard spot.

Beverley has played in 53 of the Rockets’ 71 games, missing time earlier this season with a hand injury. He averages 9.9 points in 31.3 minutes but one of his greatest assets is his defense.
