Clippers' Patrick Beverley out for season following knee surgery

November 22, 2017

The L.A. Clippers announced that point guard Patrick Beverley underwent an arthroscopic lateral meniscus repair, and a microfracture procedure, on his right knee.

Beverley is expected to miss the remainder of the 2017-18 NBA season.

The loss of Beverley means an expanded role for guard Austin Rivers, who will now be relied upon to handle the majority of the minutes at the point.   Off-season acquisition Milos Teodosic also could see increased playing time, provided he can first regain his health.

Beverley, 29, is one of the NBA's elite on-ball defenders at the point guard position.  He has appeared in 11 games for the Clippers this season, averaging 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.73 steals in 30.3 minutes per game.
