Patrick Beverley (knee surgery) will miss the remainder of the 2017-18 season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
Beverley's knee required microfracture surgery and an arthroscopic repair of his right lateral meniscus, so he has a very long road ahead of him in the rehab process, and this is horrible luck for him in a contract year. Obviously, he needs to be cut in all re-draft leagues, and it'll be Sindarius Thornwell holding down the point guard spot in L.A. until Milo Teodosic (left foot) comes back. Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will be earning heavy minutes moving forward, and both those guys are worth owning in most leagues. We haven't had much news on Teodosic, but given that he could be earning 30-plus minutes a night as a starter upon his return, he's a decent deep league stash. Nov 22 - 5:46 PM

Date:

Patrick Beverley underwent a surgical procedure on his right knee Wednesday and he will be out indefinitely.

We'll have a better idea on Beverley's potential return date once we know exactly what kind of surgical procedure he had, but he's guaranteed to be looking at a lengthy absence here and will be tough to hold in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot. Sindarius Thornwell will likely be the L.A.'s starting PG moving forward, but with averages of just 8.4 points, 1.4 triples, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game through five starts, he's basically just a deep league guy. Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will be getting all the run they can handle, with Williams offering the most upside.

Patrick Beverley has been sent back to Los Angeles because of right knee issues, and he will be out "a while," according to Clippers' beat reporter Brad Turner.

Ugh. Beverley just can't seem to shake this right knee issue, and while he's been a solid top-60 option this season with averages of 12.2 points, 2.9 dimes, 2.2 triples and 1.8 steals per contest, it's going to be tough to hang onto him in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot. Sindarius Thornwell figures to move back into the starting lineup with Beverley out indefinitely, while Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will be getting all the run they can handle. Sweet Lou is the primary beneficiary here, and Rivers is a solid option in points leagues, but Thornwell is just a low-end guy in deep leagues.

Patrick Beverley challenged his teammates after the Clippers ninth straight loss on Monday, telling reporters: "We're not playing hard."

Beverley had missed five straight games due to a sore right knee before returning to take on the Knicks Monday night. He finished nine points, six rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes. After the game, he wasn't afraid to voice his concerns. "We just got to play harder," said Beverley. "We're not playing hard; the first unit, not the whole team... We too cool. We come in this game, we come on the court like people are supposed to back down because of the name on the back of our jerseys, and that’s not the case."

Patrick Beverley (sore right knee) returned from a five-game absence on Monday vs. the Knicks, scoring nine points with six rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

He finished 3-of-8 from the field with seven of his shots coming from behind the arc. Beverley looked fine, but the Clippers were obviously watching his minutes closely as a precaution. With the Clippers losing their ninth straight game, they will need to ramp up Beverley's workload in a hurry for them to turn their season around.

Patrick Beverley (sore right knee) will start on Monday vs. the Knicks.

We'll be on the lookout for any information regarding restrictions prior to tip-off, but he's safe to activate in season-long leagues and should be picked up if he was dropped. With Beverley back, both Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will take a hit in value, and we'll see less of rookie Sindarius Thornwell.
Nov 20 - 6:26 PM

Patrick Beverley (sore right knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's matchup with the Knicks.

Beverley has spent the past five games on the sidelines, but he's been ramping up his activities at practice and Monday seems like a very realistic potential return date. If he is able to get back out there Sindarius Thornwell will head back to the bench and Juwan Evans could drop from the rotation entirely. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround.
Nov 19 - 2:43 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) is targeting a return to the lineup on Monday to face the Knicks.

This makes a lot of sense after we saw him put in a good workout before today's game. Beverley seems to be up to speed for the most part and the Clippers missed him badly due their current NBA-high eight game losing streak. Sindarius Thornwell, Juwan Evans, Lou Williams and Austin Rivers should lose some value. Beverley needs to be added in all standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 11:03 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) did some pre-game work and took on contact before Saturday's game in Charlotte.

He looked to have worked up a good sweat in the video from the Clippers broadcast. Beverley was not expected to play in either game this weekend, but it sounds like the Clippers have a plan to get him back out there next week. If he was dropped, it's probably time to pick him back up.
Nov 18 - 7:35 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

Coach Doc Rivers said he was going to miss this game a few days ago, but the Clippers listed him as doubtful. Lou Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Juwan Evans will pick up the slack.
Nov 18 - 7:07 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Beverley was listed as doubtful for Friday's game as well and did not play. It was the fourth consecutive game he has missed. We may not get definitive word on Beverley's status until coach Doc Rovers addresses the media prior to tip-off tonight. Sindarius Thornwell started on Friday and tallied 13 points and two assists in 31 minutes during the Clippers overtime loss to the Cavs. Lou Williams scored 13 points and dished out seven assists in 37 minutes off the bench.
Nov 18 - 10:18 AM

Patrick Beverley (knee) will not play against the Cavs on Friday.

Coach Doc Rivers said he's going to miss at least one more game, but the team listed him as doubtful today. With Beverley out, it's the Lou Williams show while Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans should be in the rotation. The Clippers need a win.
Nov 17 - 6:54 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

The Clippers have lost six straight games, but they'll likely be without Beverley "for at least one or two" more games according to coach Doc Rivers. Austin Rivers and Lou Williams will continue to play as many minutes as they can handle with Beverley on the shelf, while Sindarius Thornwell will play a significant amount of minutes as well. In terms of fantasy, Williams is by far the easiest to trust out of this trio.

Coach Doc Rivers said Patrick Beverley (knee soreness) is not expected to play "for at least one or two of these games" on the upcoming road trip.

The Clippers start a five-game road trip on Friday and it does sound like Beverley could make it back at some point in that time. However, he's almost certainly out for Friday and it could be beyond that. The Clippers are the coldest team in basketball, but Lou Williams certainly isn't in fantasy. Sindarius Thornwell also should step up. Beverley fantasy owners should stand pat for now.

Patrick Beverley (right knee soreness) says his knee is feeling "way, way much better."

Beverley has missed three straight games after getting fluid drained from the knee and feels he should have rested it at the start of the season. "I don’t feel like I took enough time off the first time. I was playing like 70%, trying to fight through it," Beverley said. "But it feels much better now, though, way much better, way, way much better, night and day." He wouldn’t say when he plans to return, but coach Doc Rivers said his Beverley would travel with the team on a four-game trip that starts Friday at Cleveland. We should have an update by Thursday.
