Patrick Beverley scored 11 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.
If not for garbage time, Beverley's minutes would have likely been more than his 29 from Thursday. Beverley does only have a team-low 12.0 usage rate, but the Rockets are very successful when he's on the court with his team-high 13.8 net rating. He's posting eighth-round value on the year and could hold that value. Dec 3 - 2:40 AM

Date:

Patrick Beverley scored three points with seven rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He only saw 0.5 minutes in the overtime frames, so maybe coach Mike D'Antoni didn't want to put too many minutes on Beverley during the front end of a back-to-back set. He hasn't shot the ball well in his last three with just three makes on 16 attempts, but Beverley is a hold in standard leagues. His minutes may be something to watch in Denver on Friday.
Dec 2 - 2:45 AM

Patrick Beverley chipped in four assists, three rebounds and two blocks vs. Portland on Sunday, but he missed all five field goal attempts to finish with one point in 35 minutes.

Bev came in hot this season, shooting 53.1 percent in five games, but a drop-off was inevitable for the career 41.4 percent shooter. He's still worth a look if you need a low-end PG, and you can't tell by watching him play that he just returned from knee surgery.
Nov 28 - 12:11 AM

Patrick Beverley grabbed a season-high 10 rebounds to go along with 10 points, four assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in 35 minutes of action vs. Toronto on Wednesday.

The Raptors had given up 100+ points in seven consecutive games and they did so again tonight, but Houston's defense wasn't up to the task in a 115-102 defeat. Beverley fell two boards short of his career high and he's looked good since his return, establishing himself as a viable low-end point guard -- just don't expect many assists with James Harden running the show.
Nov 24 - 12:08 AM

Patrick Beverley scored five points with one rebound, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

The offense is going through him slightly more than anticipated. Beverley had a three-block game in his debut and picked his steals tonight. Beverley's scoring won't be there, but he's a decent rebounder, can add steals, is adept at hitting treys now, and he has a chance at four assists per game. He's worth a pickup for owners needing a point guard.
Nov 19 - 8:33 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee surgery) hit 5-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, two rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 25 minutes of Thursday's easy 126-109 win over the Blazers.

Beverley looked pretty good in his season debut but as we've seen in the past, his general lack of offense makes him a tough player to roster in 12-team leagues. Keep an eye on him, but don't feel like you have to run to your phone and pick him up. He may not score 11 points in his next two games combined and James Harden is the real point guard of this team.
Nov 17 - 10:39 PM

Pat Beverley (knee) is expected to play 20-25 minutes in his start against the Blazers on Thursday.

He is expected to play about five minutes in the first quarter, so he's likely looking at four five-minute stints. Beverley was not even listed as probable for this game, so he should be ready for his role tonight. He's worth a look in standard leagues in coach Mike D'Antoni's favorable system.
Nov 17 - 6:29 PM

Mike D'Antoni said that Patrick Beverley (knee) will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Portland.

D'Antoni said on Tuesday that Beverley will likely take a week or so before he's fully acclimated, but he has him penciled into a 30-minute starting role with the Rockets. That's enough playing time for Beverley to establish himself as a standard league asset, and it'll be interesting to see what he can do in D'Antoni's system. When Beverley gets back into the starting lineup, Eric Gordon will more than likely head to the bench, and his value could take a hit as he concedes minutes to Beverley.

Mike D'Antoni implied that Patrick Beverley will be a significant part of his rotation once he's fully up to speed.

"Obviously, Pat, it will take him a week or so to get the rust off," said D'Antoni. "But he’ll pick up 30 minutes. That’s a big chunk." D'Antoni has already said that Beverley will be a starter, and 30 minutes is enough time for him to pop up on the standard league radar. Last year Beverley played 28.7 minutes a night averaged 9.9 points, 3.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 triples per game, which was good enough for seventh-round value in 9-cat leagues. If you need some production in 3-pointers and steals, he could be worth a stash. His return will likely cut into Eric Gordon's minutes.
Nov 15 - 2:28 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) is hopeful he can get back to the court for Thursday's game against Portland.

That means he'll miss both Monday's game against the 76ers as well as Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder, but he's getting very close to making his regular-season debut. Mike D'Antoni said that Beverley will start once he gets back to the court, so he'll likely displace Eric Gordon in the starting five upon his return. It'll be interesting to see how many minutes he plays, and if he impacts Gordon's playing time at all, but this is a wait-and-see situation just about everywhere.
Nov 14 - 6:47 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) will not play vs. the 76ers on Monday.

He's getting closer to a return and there's reportedly a "good chance" that he makes his season debut on Wednesday vs. the Thunder. It's not clear what role Beverley will have when he returns, but he could form a three-man rotation in the backcourt with James Harden and Eric Gordon. He's not an exciting pickup in standard leagues and could be limited out of the gate.
Nov 13 - 1:36 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee) said he will return to action this week.

There is a slight chance he can play on Monday against the 76ers. It'll be very interesting to see where coach Mike D'Antoni puts Beverley, especially with James Harden playing well. With Corey Brewer starting, he might just be a placeholder to keep Eric Gordon on the bench. Obviously Harden won't be affected. Beverley is only worth a look if you're desperate for a point guard in a standard league.
Nov 12 - 7:18 PM

Patrick Beverly (left knee surgery) did "lots of shooting, sprinting" on Saturday and is inching closer to a return.

Beverley is coming off knee surgery in October. Coach Mike D'Antoni said before practice Friday that Beverley could return to full practice next week. The Rockets have a three-game road trip to finish November starting with Sacramento on Nov. 25. D'Antoni said it's safe to expect Beverley back by then but he's even hoping for his return before that road trip.
Nov 12 - 12:30 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters that Patrick Beverley (knee) could return to practice next week.

Beverley underwent surgery on his left knee in late October. He was initially given a target date of Nov. 21, but seems to be a bit ahead of schedule. With James Harden successfully handling the point guard duties for the Rockets, Beverly's potential role is unclear. He will have a tough time securing significant minutes, so his fantasy upside is certainly limited.
Nov 11 - 1:40 PM

Patrick Beverley (knee surgery) said he's ahead of schedule and he hopes to return by Nov. 21.

Bev would like to play as soon as Nov. 14, at home vs. the 76ers, but a return in late-November seems more realistic. His role upon his return is uncertain, but presumably he'll be eased into the rotation with a bench role behind James Harden and Eric Gordon. Considering his injury history and limited versatility, it's hard to like his fantasy prospects.
