Patrick Beverley underwent successful surgery on his left knee on Tuesday, and he expects to miss the first three weeks of the regular season.
Beverley is looking at a late-November, early-December return, but it's unclear exactly what his role will look like when he finally gets back on the court with James Harden operating as Houston's starting point guard. Eric Gordon will see the biggest boost in value in Beverley's absence, and with an unclear role in Houston, Beverley isn't really worth hanging onto in standard leagues. Oct 25 - 3:48 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) will be re-evaluated in three weeks following his Tuesday surgery.

He is expected to miss 4-6 weeks due to the procedure. Based on that timetable following the procedure, Beverley will miss between 14-21 games. It'll be James Harden and his preseason-high 10.7 assists per game running the point with Eric Gordon also getting a major bump.

Patrick Beverley (left knee surgery) is expected to miss the next four-to-six weeks, a source told Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Beverley is expected to undergo the procedure on Tuesday. This timetable aligns much more with what Mike D'Antoni had previously said regarding his expectation that Beverley would miss about 20 games, so it sounds like the three-week timetable to return that was previously reported was a bit optimistic. In Beverley's absence, Eric Gordon is expected to get the majority of minutes alongside James Harden, but we should see some of Pablo Prigioni and possibly K.J. McDaniels, as well.

Patrick Beverley (knee) will undergo a minor surgical scope on his left knee early next week.

He is expected to miss three weeks, which is a slightly better prognosis than what coach Mike D'Antoni said with Beverley possibly missing 20 games. The Rockets are going to lean more on Eric Gordon and James Harden to take on most of their guard minutes while Pablo Prigioni, K.J. McDaniels and Tyler Ennis could fill in the gaps.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said Pat Beverley (knee) could miss about 20 games.

The timetable is about the same whether he waits it out or has surgery, so we still don't know the treatment plan. Whatever the case, if he misses 20 games, that puts his target date at Dec. 5 against the Celtics -- he could miss fewer than that, though. James Harden is going to get the starting job and play massive minutes. After that, it looks like Tyler Ennis or Pablo Prigioni are next in line. Eric Gordon is also locked in for minutes at SG with Harden at the point.

Patrick Beverley (knee) will not play in the preseason.

He may need surgery on his knee and could miss time in the regular season regardless of the treatment plan. There's always a lot of buzz around a Mike D'Antoni point guard, but it turns out that guy may be James Harden. With Beverley out, Eric Gordon benefits the most.

Patrick Beverley may need surgery on his left knee according to ESPN.

Wow. He's missed the last four games with "knee irritation," and Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni hinted last week that he's not expecting him to be ready for the regular season. Beverley will undergo further evaluations this week before a final determination is made, but this takes him off the standard-league radar until we know more. Eric Gordon gets a bump with this news and should start next to James Harden.

Patrick Beverley (sore knee) is likely to miss the season opener.

Beverley is trying to work his way back from irritation in his left knee, and head coach Mike D'Antoni isn't counting on him for the opener. "We'll know more by the end of the week," D'Antoni said. "I'm not counting on [Beverley returning by the season opener]. Can't count on that." Beverley could lose his starting SG job to Eric Gordon by the time he returns, and isn't much more than a late-round pick in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 18 - 1:16 PM

Patrick Beverley (sore knee) could miss a week or two according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

The season starts in less than two weeks, so this report means that Beverley's status for the opener is up in the air. Beverley was expected to start next to Harden this season, but Eric Gordon has looked great in the preseason and could steal the job. Beverley is still not practicing with the team.
Oct 14 - 1:19 PM

Patrick Beverley (sore knee) will not play on Saturday vs. Memphis.

He still isn't practicing and the Rockets haven't provided a timetable. A report on Thursday indicated that Beverley is "feeling better," but we won't have any more clarity for a couple more days. Pablo Prigioni (shoulder) is doubtful, so James Harden and Eric Gordon could be busy.
Oct 14 - 12:53 PM

Patrick Beverley (sore knee) is reportedly "feeling better" and his status will be clarified later this week.

Bev didn't travel overseas with the Rockets and the severity of his injury is unclear, but it doesn't sound too serious. His upside is limited as a point guard who shoots a low percentage, doesn't get many assists, and has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career.
Oct 13 - 1:00 AM

Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) will miss at least the next three preseason games.

Beverley won't even join the Rockets on their trip to China, so that's obviously a little worrying. Based on this report, the earliest Beverley could play again would be on Oct. 15 vs. the Grizzlies. We should have more clarity on his injury in a few days, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Rockets decided to run some tests on his knee. Eric Gordon, Pablo Prigioni and Tyler Ennis will get some extended run over the next few games.
Oct 4 - 7:55 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) will miss Tuesday's preseason game.

Beverley is dealing with knee soreness and will begin the preseason on the bench as the Rockets attempt to get him healthy. His injury isn't believed to be serious, so fantasy owners in standard leagues can continue to target Beverley towards the end of their drafts. Eric Gordon will start in Beverley's place on Tuesday.
Oct 4 - 11:51 AM

Patrick Beverley logged 19 minutes on Sunday, finishing with five points on 1-of-4 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

There's only so much that can be gleaned from a raw exhibition vs. an international team, but as promised, Beverley, Eric Gordon and James Harden rotated in through the backcourt. Tyler Ennis (11 minutes) and Pablo Prigioni (10 minutes) also saw some run, but neither guy is likely to have a substantial role in the regular season.
Oct 2 - 10:49 PM

Patrick Beverley is expected to start next to James Harden this season according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

There was some concern that Beverley might move to the bench with James Harden running the offense, but Mike D'Antoni wants his defense and 3-point shooting in the first unit. The Rockets will basically use a three-guard rotation that includes Eric Gordon, but Beverley is just a late-round target for owners in need of steals and treys. He missed some workouts earlier in the week with a cut on his foot, but he has since been cleared to return to full practice.
