 Patrick Beverley (knee) was cleared to play Game two for the Rockets. 

It looks like the MRI came back clean and there is no additional damage to the meniscus. Beverley is now dealing with a sprained knee as well as a damaged meniscus which had originally kept him out for eight games towards the end of the regular season. You have to admire his desire to win and ability to withstand pain, but how effective he'll be on the floor in a playoff atmosphere could be a different story.

Patrick Beverley will undergo a MRI on his sprained right knee on Monday.

Beverley had walked into Sunday's Game 1 having dealt with a torn meniscus in his right knee and now suffered a sprain on top of it. The MRI will reveal whether or not he did any further damage to the meniscus or any other part of the knee. Consider him day-to-day right now and questionable for Game 2.

Kevin McHale said Patrick Beverly will not play Friday night.

Beverley continues to be hampered by the torn meniscus in his knee he suffered on Mar. 27, but swears that he'll be back on the court before the playoffs open. The team will continue to monitor his slow but steady progress and keep things on a day-to-day basis. Jeremy Lin will continue to start for him Friday and we'll worry about Saturday on Saturday.

Patrick Beverley will not play Wednesday against the Nuggets.

Unlike teammate Dwight Howard (ankle), Beverley isn't as near to a return and might not even be back during the regular season. He is currently dealing with a torn meniscus in his knee and doesn't appear to be close at all. He'll remain a game-time decision, but you should have moved past him a while ago. Jeremy Lin will continue to start in his absence.

Rockets guard Patrick Beverley will not need surgery and his return at least a week away.

Even though he won't need surgery, don't expect to see Beverley the rest of the regular season. The Rockets are very relieved to know they will have his services for the post-season which is obviously their priority at this point. Jeremy Lin will continue to start at PG.
