Patrick Beverly Back For Clippers

Clippers starting point guard Patrick Beverley will suit up against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday night, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times tweets.

Beverley has been sidelined with right knee soreness for LA since March 11. He has partaken in just 29 games for the Clippers this season as a result of multiple injuries. Head coach Tyronn Lue noted that Beverley will be playing on a minutes limit.

The 32-year-old vet, known for his defensive moxie, is averaging 8.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and 2.1 APG this season. He is connecting on a stellar 42% of his 4.1 three-point looks. Reggie Jackson had been starting in Beverley’s stead for the Clippers.

Beverley’s longtime backcourt mate Lou Williams was recently traded to the Hawks in exchange for two-time champion Rajon Rondo, who brings his leadership and ball-handling to Los Angeles.

The Clippers are currently the No. 3 seed in the crowded Western Conference with a 33-18 record.
