Patrick Beverley suffered a torn meniscus and his timetable for return is unclear, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports on Friday. The injury occurred in the second quarter of a blowout with over the 76ers on Thursday.

With the 25-year-old out possibly for the rest of the season, usual sixth man Jeremy Lin will take over the starting point guard role for Houston (49-22), which has won five in a row and is in fourth place in the West.

Initial reports from Beverley said he'd be able to play on Saturday against the Clippers before seeking a second opinion.

Beverley, known as a strong — and sometimes annoying — defender, is averaging 9.9 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game this season. Lin averages 12.4 points per game, but his defensive game isn't as good.
