Rockets' Patrick Beverley to Undgergo Wrist Surgery, Out for Rest of the Season

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- James Harden will have to continue carrying the Houston Rockets on his back as injuries have struck the team again. The Rockets announced that starting point guard Patrick Beverley will miss the rest of the season with a wrist injury.

Beverley will undergo surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left wrist. He had originally opted to not have the procedure, but ultimately decided it was the best course of action.

"We'll miss Pat in a lot of different ways," Rockets coach Kevin McHale told reporters. "He brings a lot of toughness. He's been really good for us slowing down guys the last couple of years. But we'll use all the resources we have and figure out what we need to do that night."

Beverley is just the latest member of the Rockets to miss time due to injury. Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones, and Donatas Motijuanas have all miss extended time this season.

Despite the injuries, the Rockets have the third-best record in the Western Conference.
