Report: Patrick Beverley (sore right knee) plans to return on Monday
From NBA media reports
Eleven days into the season, the LA Clippers were the only undefeated team in the league, having won their first four games. Three weeks later, the Clippers are 5-10, in 13th place in the Western Conference, having lost eight straight.
Injuries have been an issue. The Clippers have been without three starters for the last five games. Starting point guard Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia injury) has been out since the second quarter of Game 2. Danilo Gallinari (strained left glute) has missed the last six games and Patrick Beverley (sore right knee) has missed the last five.
Some relief is on the way in the person of Beverley, as ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski reports…
The LA Clippers, reeling on an eight-game losing streak, are planning for the return of starting point guard Patrick Beverley against the New York Knicks on Monday, league sources told ESPN.
Beverley has missed five straight games with a sore right knee. He has averaged 12.9 points, three assists and three rebounds for the Clippers this season.
Los Angeles has struggled without its opening-night backcourt of Beverley and rookie Milos Teodosic. As Beverley plans his return on Monday, Teodosic’s return is still uncertain. He suffered an injury to his left plantar fascia in October and isn’t expected back in the near future.
