Patrick Beverley will not suit up against the Mavs on Thursday after suffering a left calf injury during Tuesday's loss to the Suns.
This was expected as Doc Rivers told the media that the team was going to take a very cautious approach with their defensive stalwart. This makes perfect sense as the Clippers are focused on winning their first NBA championship in team history and want to have a healthy roster heading into September. Reggie Jackson and Lou Williams are the names to consider with Beverley ruled out.
His next chance to take the floor will come on Saturday vs. the Blazers.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Doc Rivers said that the Clippers are going to be very cautious with Patrick Beverley’s calf injury.
The injury doesn’t look to be anything serious but the Clippers can’t jeopardize losing their defensive guard, especially with the playoffs rapidly approaching. Look for Reggie Jackson to get the start on Thursday in case Beverley can’t give it a go.

Patrick Beverley was forced to depart Tuesday's game because of left calf soreness.
Doc Rivers said he doesn't believe the injury is anything serious but the Clippers will exercise caution with their defensive stopper. He was limited to just eight minutes, in which he produced four points and a pair of rebounds. If Beverley misses any action it'll put Reggie Jackson on the board as a viable DFS play.

Patrick Beverley carries outsized influence on the Clippers because of his effort and tenaciousness, something the Clippers struggled to deal without in his absence.
“His spirit alone lifted us,” coach Doc Rivers said on Saturday. “He just makes so many unselfish plays. Half his points, half the things that happen out there, he gets zero credit for in a stat sheet, yet the meaning for us on the floor is immeasurable.” The Clippers gave their starting guard space while he was away, not asking him to rush back to help the team prepare for what will hopefully be a push toward the franchise’s first championship. The team is still missing Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, both key pieces of their bench unit, but hopefully they will join the team before the beginning of the playoffs.

Patrick Beverley will shift back into the starting lineup against the Pelicans on Saturday but will remain on a minutes restriction.
Despite only one game under his belt, Beverley will replace Reggie Jackson in the starting lineup. He was a late arrival in Orlando after leaving to deal with a family matter. After scoring 12 points in 16 minutes during the season resumption, Beverley could see his playing time climb slightly. However, he still presents an element of risk if you opt to roll with him in your fantasy lineup.

Patrick Beverley came off the bench and logged 16 minutes in Thursday's re-opener against the Lakers, chipping in 12 points and two 3-pointers.
Beverley was strangely quiet across the rest of the box but we'll cut him some slack. He was on an unspecified minutes limit for this one after missing the Clippers' scrimmage slate for personal reasons, so those minutes will be increasing in short order. Expect Beverley to deliver late-middle round numbers when he gets back to full strength, though how fast he can do that over the team's seven remaining games is still up in the air.

Reggie Jackson will start Thursday's game against the Lakers ahead of Patrick Beverley.
Jackson will get the nod in the starting lineup but Beverley will be available off the bench for an undisclosed amount of time. Jackson has been a nice add for the Clippers and could get a decent amount of run in the early going.

Patrick Beverley (self-isolating) will play in Thursday's tilt with the Lakers, though Doc Rivers said he's unsure exactly how much Beverley will play.
Beverley's status was in question after he left the Orlando bubble to tend to a personal matter but he's ready to rock. It's a big lift for a Clippers squad that's already missing Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell. Beverley is a late-round fantasy option who provides strong output in steals, threes and blocks (for a PG, at least). We'd shy away from him in DFS given the questions surrounding tonight's workload.

Previously expected to be out, Patrick Beverley (self-isolating) has since been upgraded to questionable for Thursday’s game.
Beverley had been away from the bubble for a family emergency and had been self-isolating since returning to the team earlier this week. Doc Rivers originally claimed Beverley was a “maybe” to play tonight and although it was previously stated he was out, he has since been upgraded to questionable as he joined his teammates on the court for shootaround this morning. With Lou Williams not able to suit up tonight the return of Beverley would be a significant upgrade to the backcourt rotation. Expect an official ruling on his status later in the day.

The Clippers will be without Patrick Beverley (self-isolating), Lou Williams (self-isolating) and Montrezl Harrell (not with team) for Thursday's game vs. the Lakers.
It was already reported that Harrell would miss the first game of the restart, while Lou Williams will have to miss at least the first two games due to a violation of league policy while being away from the Orlando bubble. Beverley, who is still officially listed as questionable, appears likely to miss Thursday's contest which should allow plenty of opportunity for Reggie Jackson to produce low-end fantasy value in standard leagues. Landry Shamet, Rodney McGruder and Terance Mann could also be in line for additional run off the bench but none are recommended fantasy options outside of much deeper leagues.

Doc Rivers said that Patrick Beverley, who had been away from the Clippers for personal reasons, is a "maybe" for Thursday's game against the Lakers.
The Clippers are expecting Landry Shamet to be ready, which should take some of the pressure off of Reggie Jackson and Lou Williams. Beverley can chip in with long-range shooting and defensive stats, but even when healthy his fantasy impact has been blunted by the depth of the roster.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Patrick Beverley (personal) has returned to the Orlando bubble.
Beverley had departed on Tuesday due to a family emergency. It is good to see that he was able to swiftly return so hopefully everything is okay with his family, but Beverley will have to go through a self-isolation period while back on campus in Orlando. While Beverley is out Reggie Jackson should get the starting nod for the Clippers.

In their first scrimmage in Orlando on Wednesday, Reggie Jackson started in place of Patrick Beverley (personal).
Jackson logged 18 minutes and scored nine points on 4-of-7 from the field to go with two rebounds and two assists. Beverley, who is the team’s starting point guard, left the NBA campus on Tuesday to attend to a family matter and Jackson should continue to see an increased workload while Beverley is sidelined.

According to ESPN's Malika Andrews, Patrick Beverley left the NBA 'bubble' on Tuesday evening to attend to an emergency personal matter.
The Clippers can't be too excited to hear of this development, but this is just how things have been for sports in 2020. In the seemingly inevitable event that players will have to abruptly leave the bubble to attend to other, more pressing circumstances, it's better for the team's on-floor outlook that it happen now rather than during the playoffs. Each team's eight seeding games don't begin until at least July 30, and the Clippers face none other than their crosstown rival, the Lakers, that evening. Beverley's chances of playing in that game are now next to nothing given that he will have to self-isolate upon returning to Disney World in Orlando.

Patrick Beverley finished just inside of the top-115 in 9-cat leagues despite missing 16 games.
Beverley dealt with injuries all throughout the season and was on pace to put up his second season with the Clippers playing less than 70 games. He began to share time with Reggie Jackson once he joined the team and finished the season averaging 7.9 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.6 triples on 42.8 percent shooting. He was dropped onto the waiver wire in most leagues and heading into next season his outlook doesn't look too much better.
