Clippers rule out Patrick Beverley (injury management) Friday in back-to-back

Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley (injury management) will not play Friday against the Houston Rockets.

What It Means:

Beverley, Paul George (rest), Kawhi Leonard (rest), Terance Mann (personal), and Amir Coffey (health protocols) have all been ruled out for the second leg of the Clippers' back-to-back. Reggie Jackson (Achilles) is doubtful, so Rajon Rondo will likely make the start at point guard with Yogi Ferrell as the backup.

Over a 21-minute sample size with Beverley, George, Leonard, Mann, and Jackson off the court, Ferrell is registering a 19.8 percent usage rate and averaging 1.3 FanDuel points per minute. The Rockets are allowing the third-most FanDuel points to the point guard position over their last 15 games.
