In accepting the good with the bad, the Clippers broke a nine-game losing streak that was taking a toll. With Milos Teodosic (foot) still out as well, the Clippers will likely turn back to Sindarius Thornwell in the backcourt alongside Austin Rivers. Rookie guard Juwan Evans and C.J. Williams should also see more minutes with such massive holes in the guard rotation.
With Chris Paul now in Houston, DeAndre Jordan may be the next one out of L.A.as the Clippers look to get out of their funk.
The guard went on court to play against the New York Knicks on Monday, but he had missed the five games before that with a sore right knee.
The Clippers are 0-5 without Beverley in the lineup this season.
"He's probably going to be out a while", Clippers coach Doc Rivers told reporters in Atlanta, where the reeling team was to face the Hawks on Wednesday night, the fourth game of a five-game cross-country trip.
Beverley averaged 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.7 steals per game in his first 11 games as a member of the Clippers. The LA Clippers now stand at 5-11, 13th in the loaded Western Conference.
