Rockets' Patrick Beverley to miss 4-6 weeks with broken hand

The Houston Rockets will officially be without starting point guard Patrick Beverley for at least 4-6 weeks, who suffered a broken hand Saturday night vs the Detroit Pistons.

According to Jonathan Feigen, of the Houston Chronicle, the second-year guard suffered the injury to his fourth metacarpal and will likely miss four to six weeks. Beverley finished with 10 points in 15 minutes before leaving the game on Saturday.

In addition to the Beverley injury, James Harden sat out Saturday night’s game with a sprained ankle and Jeremy Lin missed his fourth-straight game due to back spasms.

Re-calling Isaiah Canaan from the RGV Vipers looks like a good move now. Expect him to see some run if needed.
