Patrick Beverley goes down with a rib injury against Bobcats

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockets starting point guard didn't last long in the season opener before going down with an injury.

Patrick Beverley lasted just ten minutes as the Houston Rockets starting point guard before he went down with an injury. Early in the second quarter, Beverley headed to the locker room with a rib injury, before the doctors there ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Lin would replace him in the second quarter, with Brooks backing him up. At the start of the second half, the Rockets left Lin in the lineup, returning him to the spot that he had taken away a few days before.

The Rockets endured a crazy rash of injuries in the first half, with Harden going to the locker room with tightness early in the game, followed by Beverley and his rib injury, and later by Jeremy Lin who was cut on his chin. Let's hope the first half isn't foreshadowing for what is to come during the season. We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
