Los Angeles Clippers Point Guard Patrick Beverley is back in the gym today, working towards returning next season.

The only good thing that comes from watching players get injured is watching them progress along their road to recovery.

Los Angeles Clippers Point Guard Patrick Beverley went down early last season with a season-ending knee injury, and despite hopes that he could come back at the end of the season and vault the team into the playoffs, we ultimately saw the last of him in November.

Now, courtesy of a video shared on Instagram, we can see he’s back in the gym and working towards a return.

In the video, Beverley is seen doing an intense core and leg workout, with 405 pounds of weight on the bar.

It’s not surprising to see Beverley already being so intense with his workouts, given his on court personality. Never one to back down from opposing competition, Beverley is one of the league’s most tenacious performers.

In his first season in LA, Beverley averaged 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists in 30 minutes per game. He also matched his career-high three-point percentage, connecting on 40% of his attempts.

The 29-year-old guard appeared in just 11 games this season for the LA Clippers, all of which were starts. It’s unknown if Beverley would have had the starting role all season long, given a few statements Head Coach Doc Rivers made in October.

“We’ve got four guards, and that’s the way we’re going to view it all year,” Rivers told The Orange County Register. “All are terrific. All will play. What we can’t have is one of them get injured. That’s what we can’t have, because then we’re stretched. Those four guys are going to be really important to us, and they’re going to play a lot.”

Assuming he’s healthy, Beverley will likely reclaim his starting role next season.
