Where you at Red Nation? Ready for Game 2?
Rockets guard Patrick Beverley has been given medical clearance to play in Game 2.
Beverley injured his knee in overtime against the Trail Blazers in overtime of Game 1 on Sunday raising questions if he would be able to play in the rest of the series.
Beverley had missed several games at the end of the regular season after suffering a torn meniscus. He did not have surgery.
Game 2 is on Wednesday in Houston.
Here is the Rockets’ official release:
Patrick Beverley underwent an examination this morning with team physician Dr. Walt Lowe. The evaluation revealed no acute issues. Beverley is listed as day-to-day, but will likely be available for Game 2 on Wednesday.
Beverley’s return was first reported by Yahoo Sports, which said an MRI on Beverley’s knee showed no new damage.

This was a very exciting game that went into OT and 4 players fouled out including Howard and Beverley. Unfortunately the Rockets could not close it out. Hopefully they can come back and take it on Wednesday.
