Beverley, who carries a well-earned reputation as one of the league’s most dogged defenders, had eight points, five rebounds and two steals in Monday’s 118-110 Game 1 victory. Midseason addition Reggie Jackson could slot into the starting role, with Terance Mann picking up additional time off the bench.
Doc Rivers on Patrick Beverley's injury length: "Obviously it's something that's lingered. I have no sense if he's playing next game, or if it takes a week or so. I just don't know."
