2019 Fantasy Outlook
After knee surgery forced Beverley to miss nearly all of the 2017-18 season, the point guard returned in 2018-19 to play a key role for the Clippers that resulted in him signing a three-year, $40 million with Los Angeles this offseason. Beverley's value continues to be his reputation as one of the best on-ball defenders in the league, but the point guard being a consistently effective three-point shooter has become an under-appreciated part of Beverley's game. After shooting 39.7 percent from behind the arc last season, Beverley has now shot at least 38 percent from three in each of the last four seasons. Now, with the arrival of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George this offseason, Beverley, even as the Clippers' starting point guard, will surely have the ball in his hands a whole lot less. But since the 31-year-old has excelled shooting from deep, it makes him a seamless off-ball fit in the presence of ball-dominant superstars like George and Leonard. His overall production, however, will certainly take a sizable hit next season. He was already coming off his lowest scoring average (7.6 PPG) since his rookie year. Read Past Outlooks

College/International Summary

Beverley spent two seasons with Arkansas and showed the type of defensive intensity that would be the hallmark of his professional career. He started 34 games as a freshman and provided 13.9 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.7 steals per contest. The 6-foot-1 guard earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors and helped the Razorbacks to the 2007 NCAA Tournament, where they lost to USC in the first round. Beverley returned for his sophomore season and played with seniors Sonny Weems and Darian Townes. He averaged 12.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

He played one season with Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk in the Ukrainian Basketball League, where he averaged 16.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.2 steals in 46 games. He was drafted in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft, but he spent the following three-plus years overseas. Beverley won the EuroCup MVP award for the 2011-12 season with Spartak St. Petersburg.

Coach Doc Rivers noted that Beverley (calf) could be out "a couple of days, a couple games," Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
His timetable isn't exactly clear, but it seems like we might not see Beverley until the final seeding games. Assuming that's the case, Landry Shamet and Reggie Jackson should continue holding down most of the minutes at point guard.

Past Season Summaries
2018

In his second season with the Clippers, Beverley continued to provide reliable production, averaging 7.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game. He also posted a strong assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.5. The hard-nosed defender once again matched up against some of the league's top scorers but was also able to fill the stat sheet on his own. During the regular season, Beverley recorded at least seven boards and four assists in the same game 13 times. He was also proficient from beyond the arc, making four or more threes on eight occasions. The guard had his best scoring effort of the season in a Nov. 10 win over Milwaukee, as he racked up 21 points -- including five treys -- in the two-point victory. Later in the season, Beverley had one of his best all-around efforts in a win over the Spurs on Jan. 20. In 42 minutes (a season-high), Beverley finished with 18 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block while committing only one turnover. While the Clippers fell to the Warriors in six games in the opening round, Beverley closed the year on a strong note, averaging 13.3 points, 12.7 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.0 steals across Games 4 through 6.

2017

Following the 2017 NBA campaign, Beverley was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers with six other players and a first-round draft pick in exchange for Chris Paul. Beverley scored 10 points in his regular-season debut with the Clippers, adding three rebounds and two steals against the crosstown Lakers. He followed that with a 15-point, five-steal performance in a victory over Phoenix. Collectively, the veteran averaged 14.3 points and shot 50 percent from the field in his first four games while converting 9-of-19 attempts from deep. On Oct. 28, Beverley notched a season-high eight assists against Detroit, adding eight points. Six days later, he totaled a season-best 23 points while grabbing seven boards versus the Grizzlies. Beverley played two more contests before a knee injury sidelined him for five contests in mid-November. He played 22 minutes against the Knicks on Nov. 22 in his return to action, scoring nine points and collecting six rebounds. However, Beverley was subsequently diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his right knee. He underwent surgery Nov. 22 and was ruled out for the remainder of the season.

2016

Beverley missed the first three weeks of the 2016-17 campaign while recovering from surgery on his right knee. He returned to post perhaps the finest season of his career, averaging 9.5 points and establishing career bests with 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals per game. His increase in boards and dimes was evident as he notched six double-doubles during the campaign, doubling the amount he posted in his first four seasons combined. He was especially aggressive on the glass, collecting 10-plus rebounds ten times during the regular season, including three times in his last four games. Beverly tied a career high with 12 assists against the Lakers on Dec. 7, adding 10 points and seven rebounds in the victory. He scored a career-best 26 points against Phoenix on April 2, falling just shy of a triple-double with eight rebounds and nine assists. However, his most impactful contribution was on the defensive end. Beverley was named to the All-NBA Defensive First Team,, becoming the fourth player in team history to receive that recognition. He was also the winner of the NBA Hustle Award. In the postseason, Beverley averaged 11.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals in 11 games. In Game 1 of Houston's opening-round series against Oklahoma City, he notched his second career playoff double-double, finishing with 21 points and 10 rebounds in the victory.

2015

Beverley had his healthiest season to date in 2015-16 as he played a career-high 71 games. He started 63 of those contests, averaging 28.7 minutes per game. Though Beverley's scoring output dipped slightly to 9.9 points per contest, he shot a career-best 43.4 percent from the field and 40.0 percent from beyond the arc. The veteran also chipped in 3.5 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game. Beverley continued to make his mark on the defensive end, averaging 1.3 steals per game while strengthening his reputation as a fearsome on-ball defender. He scored a season-high 22 points against Chicago on March 31, adding five rebounds and seven assists in 37 minutes. The 6-foot-1 guard twice notched double-digit assists during regular season. In one of those games -- the third double-double of his career -- Beverley dished 10 assists and scored 18 points in a win over Minnesota on March 18. In the final game of the season, he tied a career high with six steals and racked up a career-best 12 assists in a win over Sacramento. Beverley twice scored in double-digits during Houston's first-round playoff battle against Golden State. In five postseason games, he averaged 5.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

2014

For the second straight season, Beverley played in exactly 56 games and made 55 starts. He was again hampered by injuries throughout the campaign, and his season came to an abrupt end in late March due to an injured left wrist. Still, Beverley was effective when he played, establishing career highs in rebounds (4.2), assists (3.4) and three-pointers (2.1) per game. The 6-foot-1 guard also scored 10.1 points per contest while playing his usual stellar defense. In December, he notched the first two double-doubles of this career. Against Sacramento on Dec. 11, he tallied 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds. Beverley followed that performance with a 12-point, 12-rebound performance six days later. On Nov. 22, the talented guard set a career high by draining six three-pointers in a victory over Dallas. That performance was one of eight throughout the season in which Beverley made at least four treys. As a testament to his diverse skill-set, Beverley was invited to participate in the Skills Challenge during All-Star Weekend. He came from behind in each of the final two rounds to emerge as the Skills Challenge champion.

2013

Following a breakout performance in the 2013 NBA Playoffs, Beverley was given an expanded role during the 2013-14 campaign. He started 55 of the 56 games in which he played, nearly doubling his playing time to 31.3 minutes per contest. Overall, Beverley averaged 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game. He also demonstrated a knack for shooting from deep, averaging 1.6 three-pointers per contest and making 36.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. Defensively, Beverley emerged as an outstanding on-ball defender, averaging 1.4 steals per game while building a reputation as a hard-nosed competitor. Despite missing 26 games throughout the season with various injuries, Beverley was named to the All-NBA Defensive Second Team. He scored 20 points twice during the season, including during a win over New Orleans on April 12 in which he knocked down four three-pointers. Beverley also demonstrated strong rebounding skills for his size and notched double-digit rebounds in two separate games. During the postseason, Beverley continued to play a key role in Houston's rotation, starting all six games in the team's first-round playoff series against Portland. In six postseason games, he played 33.7 minutes per contest, averaging 8.7 points and 4.2 rebounds.

2012

After being drafted in the second round of the 2009 NBA Draft, Beverley spent the first three-plus seasons of his professional career playing overseas. That changed on Jan. 7, 2013, when the Houston Rockets signed the 6-foot-1 guard to an NBA contract. Beverley played 41 games in his inaugural NBA season, averaging 5.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.9 assists per contest. He shot a healthy 37.5 percent from three-point range and 82.9 percent from the charity stripe. But it was baseline-to-baseline defense versus opposing point guards that impressed fans and coaches the most. Beverley totaled a season-high 15 points against Washington on Feb. 23, adding four rebounds and three assists. He played an important role in Houston's opening-round playoff series against the Thunder, averaging 33 minutes per contest. In six postseason games, Beverley posted per-game averages of 11.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals.

2013
Beverley was traded from the Rockets to the Clippers last offseason, but he wound up playing in just 11 games before undergoing surgery to repair a microfracture and meniscus injury to his right knee. Prior to the injury, Beverley was looking spry and had actually averaged 12.2 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.2 three-pointers, which would have put him into consideration as a draft selection in deeper leagues. He's now back to full strength and is heading into the final year of his current contract, so Beverley will have all the motivation necessary to make a strong return from injury. His status as a proven veteran, as well as his ability to both play lockdown defense and knock down three-pointers (40 percent from deep in two of last three seasons) consistently, should make him the favorite to open the season as the team's starting point guard. However, if he struggles at all or suffers any sort of setback, the Clippers could turn to rookie first-round pick Shai Gilgeous-Alexander or even Milos Teodosic to fill in. There may be a bit of a timeshare at the position, though Beverley could still push for starter's minutes if he excels early on. He'll be a bounce-back candidate that can be considered in the later rounds of deeper drafts, especially considering he's proven to be capable of contributing in a plethora of different categories when at full strength.
Beverley, who was traded to the Clippers in the deal that sent Chris Paul to the Rockets, will be joining a new team for the first time in what will be his sixth year in the NBA. Appropriately nicknamed “Mr. 94 Feet”, Beverley is primarily known as a hustle-hard three-and-D player rather than a traditional point guard, as evidenced by his abnormal averages of 9.5 points (38.2 percent from beyond the arc), 5.9 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 steals across 30.7 minutes per game last season. For that reason, it can be somewhat difficult to gauge Beverley’s Fantasy value since he’s somewhat of a jack-of-all-trades but master of none, which is rare from the point guard slot. At first glance, it seems like Beverley will be the starting point guard from day one, but Bill Oram of the OC Register reported that newly acquired Milos Teodosic, a 30-year-old Serbian point guard, agreed to his two-year deal with an understanding that he would be the starting point guard. That said, big questions still remain about Teodosic's defense, which could open up significant minutes for Beverley in certain matchups. Depending on how things shake out, there still remains a possibility that Beverley's assists could see a bump, though, considering he’ll no longer be sharing the rock with James Harden, who was one of the most ball-dominant guards in the NBA last season.
Houston kept its starting backcourt intact this offseason, signing Beverley to a four-year deal and extending his reign as the team’s premier perimeter defender. Beverley is a near-perfect complement to James Harden, perpetually putting out fires on one end and knocking down spot-up three-pointers on the other. While Beverley’s scoring average fell under 10 points per game for the first time in three years, he had his most efficient shooting season, converting 43.4 percent of his field goals and an even 40 percent of his three-pointers to go with 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals per game. Beverley’s value is more easily quantified in real basketball sense than in fantasy, however, and his rather pedestrian counting stats render him a fringe option in most shallower formats.
Beverley was limited to only 56 games (55 starts) last season, as a wrist injury kept him out for the final 12 games of the regular season, in addition to all of the playoffs. When he was on the court, Beverley was his usual self, an intense, hard-nosed defender tasked with guarding the opponent's best player. Offensively, Beverley was a difficult player to own, as he shot just 38 percent from the field while averaging 10.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 1.1 steals. He was a serviceable three-point threat, however, converting at a near-36 percent clip on 5.8 attempts per game. Heading into 2015-16, Beverley remains the incumbent starting point guard, but he'll face stiff competition in Ty Lawson, acquired from the Nuggets in the offseason. Lawson is undoubtedly the more effective offensive player, but Beverley is far superior defensively and holds the edge in terms of continuity. Still, it wouldn't be a shock if Lawson emerges as the starter at some point, though he ideally fits as a sparkplug off the bench, spelling Harden or Beverley as the primary ball-handler. As such, Beverley figures to see a slight reduction in minutes, and he could find himself in an even more specialized, defense-first role.
Beverley made drastic improvements in his second season in the league and with the Rockets. After stealing the starting point guard position from Jeremy Lin, Beverley saw a heavy increase in minutes from 17 per game during the 2012-13 season, to 31 during the 2013-14 season. With an increase in time on the court, he doubled his points per game averages from 5.6 per game two seasons ago, to 10.2 per game last season. To go along with the 10.2 points per game, Beverley also averaged 3.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.6 three-pointers made. He won't be heavily relied upon for scoring in the upcoming year, with James Harden, Dwight Howard, and Trevor Ariza in the fold, but Beverley will be counted on to provide the same tenacity on defense that he displayed last season, which landed him on the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. As long as he can stay healthy, considering he finished last season playing in only 56 games, he should put up similar numbers to last season, and will continue to be relied upon for his defensive game over his offensive output.
The backup to Jeremy Lin, Beverley played well enough down the stretch to see regular minutes in the playoffs (in part due to Lin's chest injury) and earn the trust of the Rockets coaches. Beverley's not much of a scorer, but he can knock down an open three and play perimeter defense. Expect 20 minutes per game and a regular role in the team's rotation.
