Patrick Beverley (wrist) said he's frustrated he can't help his team defend Stephen Curry.
"I think I have a gift very few people have," Beverley said. "I know I’m the best on-ball defender in the NBA. I’m the best point guard defender in the NBA. I think the whole league knows that." His nickname is Mr. 94 Feet and the Rockets should think about guarding Curry for 94 feet as well. Beverley is a restricted free agent and the Rockets will likely match most offers. May 25 - 7:22 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) was spotted shooting around wearing a cast during Sunday's practice.

To be clear, there still have not been any indications that Beverley will be able to play during the Western Conference Finals. He is going to be a restricted free agent when the offseason hits, and his value would likely dip if he re-injured his wrist attempting to play at the 8-week mark of a 10-week timetable. The Rockets are just going to have to make do without their best perimeter defender, which hasn't really worked out too well up to this point.
May 24 - 3:31 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) has reportedly abandoned any hope of suiting up for any games during the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors.

"It’s a no-go for the series," a league source told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday. "He’s done trying." Beverley simply doesn't have the mobility or strength in his left wrist to be able to effective on the basketball court, a realization he came to after going through two workouts on Monday. It'll be Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni doing their best to contain this year's MVP, but in the likely event they are unable to do much against Stephen Curry, it's plausible we see Trevor Ariza pick him up.

Coach Kevin McHale said Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not play against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

"Pat isn’t gong to get the pins out until the fourth or fifth [of June]," McHale said. "It’s hard to play with a pin in your wrist." McHale keeps having to address this issue and has previously said Beverley won't be back in the postseason. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni stepped up against Chris Paul and will have to do it again against Stephen Curry.

Patrick Beverley (wrist) is unlikely to return for the Western Conference Finals.

Beverley is currently in the seventh week of his initial 10-week timetable, and there haven't been any reports up to this point that would suggest Beverley is on the verge of making a return. We have seen some crazy things this postseason with John Wall playing through a very broken wrist, and Mike Conley playing just eight days after major surgery, so we're not going to completely rule him out just yet. However, when coach Kevin McHale was asked if Beverley would be able to return for the playoffs back on May 2, he responded no. We'll let you know if anything changes.
May 17 - 6:55 PM

When coach Kevin McHale was asked if Patrick Beverley (wrist) might return during the playoffs, he replied, "Pat won't be back."

Beverley was seen taking a few shots while wearing a cast this week and he said in mid-April that there's a "very strong possibility" he could play in the postseason. That appears to be overly-optimistic, however, and the Rockets have already declared him out for the playoffs. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will continue to hold down the PG position, with James Harden doing all the heavy lifting for Houston's backcourt.
May 2 - 12:21 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) was taking some shots while wearing his cast on Monday.

He is still nowhere near close to a return and will be in a cast for another six weeks. Beverley has been on the bench with the team and will likely be out for the rest of the playoffs. He does hope to return later in the playoffs, but the Rockets would have to advance very far to make this even a possibility.
Apr 27 - 4:35 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) is hopeful to return for the playoffs.

Beverley was previously ruled out for the season and was expected to need four months of recovery, but the point guard isn't hearing any of that. "Very strong possibility," he said. "Very strong. Let's hope everything goes right." Beverley doesn't care about playing through pain, but he also sounds overly optimistic here. While we're likely to get several more updates before Houston starts the postseason, a surprise Beverley return would certainly be welcomed by his team.
Apr 13 - 9:05 AM

Patrick Beverley had surgery on his left wrist on Tuesday and the surgery has been deemed a success.

Beverley will be in a cast for the next 10 weeks and will need four months of recovery. While the Rockets have Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni, and Nick Johnson to fill in for Beverley, none are a fantasy option outside of the deepest of leagues. James Harden will have to carry even more of the load for the Rockets for the rest of the season and will have a good chance to bolster his case for MVP.

Updating a previous item, Patrick Beverley has decided to have wrist surgery, and the procedure will end his season, a source told the Houston Chronicle.

It's a devastating blow to the Rockets as the team is paper-thin at point guard behind him. Rookie Nick Johnson and veterans Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will look to fill the void, but none are real options for owners who have lost Beverley. MVP candidate James Harden will have even more to do as the Rockets close out the season in preparation for the playoffs.

The Rockets are expected to make a decision on Patrick Beverley's wrist on Monday.

After Kevin McHale said on Sunday that Beverley is unlikely to return this season, we're reading the tea leaves. If Beverley undergoes surgery, he'll be out the rest of the way, leaving Houston with just Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni and Nick Johnson at point guard. With how much James Harden handles the ball, the Rockets will survive offensively, but Beverley's defense can't be replaced.

Kevin McHale said that Patrick Beverley (wrist) probably won't be back this season.

While an official decision has not been made on Beverley, this is the first time McHale has spoken with this degree of pessimism, so things really aren't looking good at all for Beverley. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will continue to man the point guard position in his absence, but neither guy is deserving of a roster spot in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 3:50 PM

Patrick Beverley is reportedly seeking to get a second opinion on the torn ligament in his left wrist to decide whether or not he will need to undergo surgery.

We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but with Beverley set to miss at least the next week of action, he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will man the point guard position in his absence, but neither guy is really capable of doing enough on the stat sheet to be considered a viable option in standard leagues.
Mar 26 - 5:48 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves, as expected.

Beverley is dealing with a torn ligament in his wrist, and his fantasy season is likely over. Jason Terry slotted into the starting point guard spot on Wednesday, but he only managed to put up two points, two rebounds, three assists, and four turnovers through 27 minutes of action, so he's not a great guy to own in standard leagues. James Harden is going to be the primary ball handler with Beverley out, so he stands to gain the most in Beverley’s absence. Pablo Prigioni will serve as Terry's primary backup, but he doesn't do enough on the stat sheet to matter in almost any league.
Mar 26 - 2:55 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) suffered a torn ligament in his wrist and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days, according to Yahoo! Sports.

If he tore a ligament in his wrist, he's likely going to be out for the season and there's a good chance he'll need surgery. As for the prognosis, it could be a couple weeks or over a month. Regardless, his fantasy owners in redraft leagues almost certainly have to cut him. Jason Terry will likely start and get minutes in the 24-32 range with Pablo Prigioni backing him up. Additionally, coach Kevin McHale has used two different lineup combos in his last two games with James Harden as the point guard. Give Terry a look if you're looking for some treys and scoring.
