Sources: Houston guard Patrick Beverley will undergo a minor surgical scope on his left knee early next week. He's expected to miss 3 weeks.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) October 22, 2016
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports is reporting that Beverley will be having a scope on his left knee and the procedure is considered minor.
When trying to find out more about the procedure Ortho Info says reasons for the surgery are as follow:
- Removal or repair of a torn meniscus.
- Reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
- Removal of inflamed synovial tissue.
- Trimming of damaged articular cartilage.
- Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage.
- Treatment of patella (kneecap) problems
- Knee sepsis (infection).
General manager Daryl Morey a couple of days ago mentioned that Beverley was deciding between surgery or rehab. After picking surgery, and after he is fully healed, hopefully, this will not cause Beverley any problems going forward.
The point guard has been out since the Rockets’ second preseason game and now it looks like December could be the next time we see him suit up.
