New, comments

Of course Beverley is trying to come back early.

The Wolverine looks to be doing it again. Once thought to be lost until sometime around December, Patrick Beverley shared with Mark Berman ‏of Fox 26 Sunday that he is ahead of schedule.

"Doing well, feeling well," Beverley said. " I don't know about 10-15 days to go, feel good, knee feels good."

This past Tuesday Beverley underwent successful surgery on his left knee on Tuesday and by Saturday, he was back at it doing a little bit of shooting work during the team's practice.

Beverley is itching to come back, but he says he understands the big picture.

"It's important for me to get healthy now," Beverley said. "They are going to need me in May, not right now."

Beverley told reporters he was looking to return sometime between Nov. 15-21. If that date holds up the Rockets are only looking at being without Beverley for only eight to 12 more games. They’re 2-1 without him already, with two wins coming against the Dirk-less Mavericks.
