Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley is out for the season after opting for surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist.
Beverley will have the surgery on Tuesday and also miss the postseason, regardless of how far the Rockets advance, reports the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen.
Beverley suffered the injury on March 23, during the third quarter of a win over the Indiana Pacers. He was initially diagnosed with a sprain before returning to Houston later in the week to meet with doctors.
[daily_cut.nba]Beverley, 26, is averaging 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 30.8 per game. He has started at point guard for the Rockets the past two seasons, but missed last year's playoffs due to a knee injury.
Beverely will be a free agent after the season, his third in the NBA after playing overseas in the Ukraine, Greece and Russia.
