Patrick Beverley is not playing on Friday against the Kings, per head coach Tyronn Lue.
Beverley was added to Thursday's injury report with a "personal reasons" designation. Reggie Jackson will start in Pat Bev's place.
Patrick Beverley is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Sacramento Kings due to personal reasons.
It's safe to consider Beverley, along with Lou Williams (hip), a game-time decision for Friday. Reggie Jackson would stand to see a minutes increase if Pat Bev can't go. Luke Kennard and, to a lesser extent, Terance Mann would both see upticks as well.
Patrick Beverley managed 10 points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) with six rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks across 37 minutes as the Clippers took down the Pelicans 111-106 on Wednesday.
This is just the fourth time in 12 games that Beverley has scored in the double digits this year. He continues to be a better real life contributor than a fantasy one. There just isn't enough volume outside of the occasional made three-pointer and steal.
Patrick Beverley finished with seven points (3-9 FG, 1-6 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds, and three blocks over 25 minutes in the Clippers 130-127 victory over the Bulls on Sunday.
Pat Bev shot poorly in this one (3-for-9 FG) and is shooting just 28-percent from the field over the last three games. He helped make up for the lack of offense with five dimes and a season-high three blocks. Beverley brings so much energy and toughness to the Clippers but, unfortunately, it doesn't always show up in the box score. The Clippers will look to build on this win when they host the Pelicans on Wednesday.
Patrick Beverley exploded for 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-9 3Pt), eight rebounds, eight assists, and two blocks across 33 minutes as the Clippers were defeated by the Spurs 116-113 on Tuesday.
This performance really came out of nowhere for Pat Bev, who had one of his best games in recent memory. The 20 points, six made three-pointers, eights assists, and minutes played were all season highs for the point guard. He had just one assist over his previous six games before coming through with eight dimes on Tuesday. Oddly, he hasn't recorded a steal in three-straight games but has picked up four blocks over that same span. Beverley is a fine real life player and a spark plug for the Clippers but he's hard to trust in season long fantasy leagues due to his inconsistency.
