Patrick Beverley was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Monday.

Beverley received the second most first team votes of any player named to the All-Defensive Second Team with 44 behind LeBron James' 54 first team votes. While most of us can care less who makes the second team of anything Beverley is an exception in part because it's a nice story in that he became just the second player to come up through the Developmental League and win All-Defensive honors (Avery Bradley of the Celtics was the other) and because Beverley is a good defender he should continue to see an increase in playing time again next season making him worth targeting in the mid- to late rounds come fantasy draft day.

Patrick Beverley said he has needed no medical procedures on his knee issues and resumed workouts on Monday.

It's pretty remarkable that Beverley finished the season the way he did and I'll give him huge credit for his toughness. I was shocked that he did not receive more attention or consideration in the Defensive Player of the Year voting. Beverley earned much respect around the league for the season he had.

Patrick Beverley was a full participant in Friday's  shootaround.

Beverley had been dealing with knee issues towards the end of the regular season and then mid-series in the first round, it was a bout with the flu. But all seems to be fine now and Beverley is back at practice, ready to play his usual role for the Rockets as they look to bounce-back from a 3-2 series deficit against the Trail Blazers.

Patrick Beverley (illness) participated in half of Thursday's practice. Beverley has spent the last 3 nights in a Houston hospital, getting IV fluids to treat a nasty flu. He'll play Game 6 Friday.

Beverly started but played just 21 minutes of Wednesday's win over the Blazers finishing with five points on 2-of-5 shooting, three rebounds, two assists, a block, and no turnovers. It marked the second time in two games where Beverly was held under 10 points after reaching double-digits in both Game Two and Three. With Beverly slowly returning to good health and the solid play off the bench from Jeremy Lin, Lin is looking like the safer choice in your DFS contests.

Patrick Beverley (illness) is going through his usual pregame warmup and will play Wednesday.

On top of the usual knee issues, Beverley is also dealing with some sort of a bug and running a fever. That will certainly affect his stamina, but not to the point where he'll be a detriment to the team. He'll fulfill his usual role, though he may see a little more of the bench from time to time. Here's hoping he doesn't puke on the court!

Patrick Beverley missed practice  Tuesday with an illness.

Nothing seem to keep this guy off the court as Beverly played Game 1 with a torn right meniscus and he sprained the same knee. I don't see any way he doesn't play on Wednesday night. Beverly's defensive ability is a huge asset for the Rockets in this crazy western showdown with the Blazers.

Update: Patrick Beverley, who Tweeted that he missed shoot around because he wasn't feeling well and needed to rest, just said he will play Sunday night.

The news of his missing the shoot-around was a bit disconcerting as there were, of course, questions about his knee. But while illness could hinder his stamina come game-night, it's good to know that he's now going to be missing something due to some sort of an injury. He should be on the court Sunday.

Patrick Beverley missed the team's morning shootaround on Sunday because he felt ill.

Pat-Bev is known for his hustle and defensive tenacity. The rockets desperately need him on the court if they want to win tonight's game. Energetic role players are crucial to a teams success in the playoffs.

 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.
