Clippers’ Beverley out for season after knee surgery

Clippers guard Patrick Beverley's season is over.

Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing right knee surgery, according to a report by ESPN.

Beverley, in his first year with the Clippers, had surgery to repair a microfracture and meniscus ailment in his knee. ESPN is adding that Beverley will require close to nine months in recovery time.

The Clippers acquired Beverley from the Houston Rockets in the Chris Paul trade. In the 11 games he appeared in, Beverley averaged 12.2 points while shooting 40.3 percent from the field and an even 40.0 percent from three.

LA have lost nine straight games entering tonight and will miss Beverley’s tenacious defense and spot-up shooting moving forward.

Beverley had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee while he was with the Rockets in 2016 as well.
