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. Sep 28 - 1:56 AM

Patrick Beverley (cut foot) will sit out of the contact portion of practice on Sunday.

He will go through some drills, but the Rockets obviously won't push him during the preseason. Beverley aslo missed practice on Saturday, but he's expected to be cleared on Monday or Tuesday. The injury isn't a concern for fantasy owners.

Patrick Beverley reported to training camp roughly eight pounds lighter but looked and felt "considerably more fit" than previously.

"It’s about being as healthy as I possibly be," Beverley said. "It’s a couple practice, it’s no big deal. I lost a lot of weight this summer, got a lot leaner. I feel lighter when I run." This is just the beginning of our annual training camp muscle watch updates, but rarely do these reports translate to any tangible change once the regular season begins. For what it's worth, Beverley plans to drop "roughly five more pounds" before the action gets underway.

Patrick Beverley will not practice on Saturday due to a minor cut on his foot.

It's training camp, so players aren't going to play through minor ailments. Beverley will return to practice on Monday or Tuesday. He is expected to open the season as the starting PG ahead of Pablo Prigioni and Tyler Ennis, but won't have much fantasy value with James Harden running the offense.

The Rockets are reportedly confident in Patrick Beverley's abilities to run the point in Houston, and they are fine with him as the starting point guard.

A report cropped up on draft day that Houston was shopping Beverley in hopes of moving up in the draft, but it's looking like that was more of a rumor than anything else. Beverley is a solid fit next to James Harden, and Houston will reportedly try and bring in a quality reserve this offseason to backup Beverley. Beverley's role as the starting point guard in Houston appears safe for now.

The Rockets are reportedly trying to move into the first round, and they may be willing to move Patrick Beverley to do so.

Beverley makes for an excellent backcourt pairing with James Harden, so it'll be interesting to see if this report comes to fruition. He tends to get a lot of open looks playing alongside Harden, so a move away from Houston wouldn't necessarily be a positive for his fantasy value.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni recently praised Patrick Beverley's style of play, saying, "He's a tough, hard-nosed defender ... I think James [Harden] needs guys like that around him."

"I'm a defensive guard," Beverley said. "He's an offensive guy. There was speculation if it was going to work. He assured me he wants me to be a part of it. That this thing doesn't work without me." D'Antoni noted that Bev improved his 3-point shooting to 40.0 percent last season, suggesting that he'll have a green light beyond the arc. He's owed a guaranteed $11.5 million over the next two seasons and nothing suggests that Houston will look to trade him.
Jun 1 - 8:43 PM

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) logged 26 minutes during Wednesday's season-ending loss, finishing with two points on 1-of-5 shooting, four rebounds and two assists.

Beverley seemingly caught a break this series with Stephen Curry suffering multiple injuries, but he was banged up himself and finished with poor averages of 5.8 points on 27.0 percent shooting, 4.4 boards, 2.2 assists and 0.4 steals. He's not much of a playmaker in Houston's offense but still racked up top-100 value this season thanks to solid 3-pointers (1.7 per game) and steals (1.3) with very low turnovers (1.3) for a point guard.
Apr 28 - 1:21 AM

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) went through a full practice on Tuesday and said that he'll "definitely" play in Game 5 against the Warriors on Wednesday.

Beverley sat out Monday's practice, so his participation in Tuesday's practice is an encouraging sign regarding his availability for Wednesday's Game 5 in Oakland. He'll likely be a game-time call on Wednesday night, but it's worth noting that he was reportedly moving around well during Tuesday's practice. It would be surprising to see him miss Game 5, but if he does, Corey Brewer and Jason Terry will benefit most.
Apr 26 - 5:28 PM

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) did not practice on Monday and only took part of the film session.

He was walking around OK, but walking and playing basketball against the Warriors are two different things. It would appear Beverley is going to miss the rest of the series. Jason Terry and Corey Brewer figure to play more.
Apr 25 - 2:46 PM

Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is traveling to Oakland for Game 5 vs. Golden State.

Beverley will get treatment and a determination on his playing status could come down to a game-time decision prior to Wednesday's do-or-die matchup. If he's forced to sit out, James Harden would be the de facto point guard with Jason Terry likely sliding into the first five while playing more minutes than he really should.
Apr 25 - 1:49 PM

Patrick Beverley (leg) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.

The Rockets ruled him out pretty quickly, so that's not a good sign. They are calling the injury a right leg strain, but there should be more details after the game. James Harden should run the offense in the second half as usual, while Jason Terry will have to pick up a lot of Beverley's minutes. He finished with two points, two boards, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes.
Apr 24 - 5:13 PM

Patrick Beverley is questionable to return to Sunday's game due to a right leg strain.

He left the game right before halftime, so there should be another update soon. James Harden will run the point if Beverley can't return and Jason Terry will have to pick up some extra minutes as well. Stay tuned.
Apr 24 - 4:55 PM

Patrick Beverley scored 13 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

He wasn't benched in this game. Beverley wasn't the problem for the Rockets in this game and he's going to play minutes in the 30s in Game 3 and 4. He's still not going to have a high enough upside to use in tournaments for DFS.
Apr 19 - 1:33 AM

Patrick Beverley made 1-of-7 from the field for two points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and no turnovers in 20 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The Oracle crowd was booing Beverley all game after he got into it with Stephen Curry (ankle). Beverley was in foul trouble for this game and the Rockets were blown out for the majority of the afternoon. He'll play more and should be a bigger factor on the offensive end.
