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.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Carlos Gonzalez (knee) was removed from Friday's game for precautionary reasons.
To borrow one from Adam Carolla: Sssssssssssssssssssssshocking. Gonzalez has managed just 717 plate appearances combined in the last two years, and fantasy owners are all too familiar with his health woes. When healthy in the last two seasons, he's struck out a fair bit more than he ever has before, so we can longer treat CarGo as a top option when healthy. There's definitely upside, but it's hard to imagine him reaching it. Analysis: Brett Talley
