LOS ANGELES, CA - OCTOBER 30: Patrick Beverley /

Patrick Beverley made the trip from Houston to San Antonio to watch his team play last night. He gave us an update on his injury.

After a successful surgery on November 22nd, Beverley was reported to be out for the entire 2017-2018 NBA season. He informed us via Twitter that his rehab was going well, and gave further information on his recovery during a 3rd quarter interview in San Antonio.

"“I will be off of the crutches within a few weeks. I’m a month ahead of schedule from what I understand.” -Patrick Beverley (paraphrased)"

That’s our starting point guard, killing the rehab process with ease. He continued with the following statements.

"“I’m doing calf raises. It’s going to feel amazing when I’m able to run again.”"

Beverley is eager to be back on NBA wood, running the LA Clippers’ offense and hustling on defense. Clipper Nation knows we both miss and need him back as soon as possible, but we want his recovery to be continued properly. Beverley has a microfracture and meniscus injury in his right knee. Much of his rehab is focused on regaining flexibility in his leg, as well as getting the limb used to activities he did before the surgery.

Despite our gloomy 11-18 record, Beverley remains confident in our team. He even made the following statement during his injury update.

"“I’m betting on our guys to make the playoffs without me, and I’ll see how my knee feels whenever we get there.”"

Are Clippers fans as confident in the team’s playoffs potential as Beverley is? We are working on it, but we are glad to hear that our point guard is recovering effectively and feeling as positive as ever.
