Wednesday March 25th, 2015

The left wrist injury Houston Rockets point guard Pat Beverley suffered against the Indiana Pacers on Monday could be season-ending, reports Yahoo Sports' Marc J. Spears.

The Rockets reportedly expect to learn Wednesday morning if Beverley would risk further ligament damage by playing with the injury.

[]Beverley, 26, was initially diagnosed with a left wrist sprain after leaving Monday's game in the third quarter. The Rockets won 110–100, moving to 47–23 as the Western Conference's third-place team.

Beverley flew back to Houston on Tuesday to have the wrist evaluated and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans in New Orleans.

“If the news is bad on Pat, he might be out awhile,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said Tuesday, according to the Houston Chronicle. “We will find out the news on Pat, but the initial thought was that it might be bad. Hopefully it will be good news.”
