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.

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.

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.
Mar 25 - 3:23 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) is scheduled to meet with a specialists, but a decision won't be made on his status for another 7-10 days.

There is reportedly a chance that Beverley will need a season-ending surgery on his wrist, but the Rockets will likely exhaust all other options first. Beverley's owners should probably move on at this point, but we will update his status once we know more. Jason Terry will assume the starting point guard duties for the Rockets, and he is worth picking up in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting. Pablo Prigioni should play more too, but he isn't a reliable option in almost all leagues.
Mar 25 - 1:13 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday as expected.

We are expected to learn whether or not Beverley will decide to have a season-ending surgery on his wrist shortly, so we should have another update soon. Jason Terry figures to be the primary beneficiary with Beverley on the sidelines, and he is worth a look for anyone needing 3-pointers.
Mar 25 - 12:12 PM

Patrick Beverley could potentially have a season-ending surgery on his wrist, but a final decision will be made on Wednesday morning after he goes through another evaluation.

The Rockets want to know if there is any risk of further damage before proceeding with the surgery, so there is some hope that Beverley's season might not be over just yet. However, Beverley's wrist has clearly limited him for a while now, so it's going to be an issue moving forward regardless. Beverley's owners can feel free to hang tight until we know more on Wednesday, but they should start looking for a backup plan. Jason Terry figures to be the biggest beneficiary if Beverley's season is over, and he is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Mar 24 - 10:38 PM

Patrick Beverley (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

With Beverley unavailable, Jason Terry will likely slide into the starting lineup, and he's worth a look for owners in deep leagues searching for some 3-point shooting. Pablo Prigioni will also see some extended minutes with the second unit, but he's not a great option in most leagues.
Mar 24 - 4:43 PM

Rockets' head coach Kevin McHale said that if he gets bad news regarding Patrick Beverley's wrist, "He might be out a while."

Beverley is currently headed back to Houston to undergo further evaluation what they are currently calling a sprained left wrist, and for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. If Beverley is forced into an extended absence, Jason Terry would likely slide into the starting lineup, while Pablo Prigioni would have the opportunity to log some extended minutes. Terry can't be viewed as much more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, and Prigioni can't be relied upon to produce in almost any league.
