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.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
