Patrick Beverley has epitomized the heart and toughness of the Clippers, so when he grabbed his right elbow after a spill onto the Staples Center court during the third quarter andran to the locker room, there was no question that the 6-foot-1 guard was hurt.
The Clippers later announced that Beverley had injured his right wrist. He returned to the game to start the fourth quarter wearing a black brace on his arm and his wrist was taped.
But later in the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ 120-107 loss to the Utah Jazz Saturday night, Beverley waived towards LA’s bench and asked to be taken out. He departed with eight minutes six seconds left holding his wrist, pain registered on his face.
His team was unable to hold off six Jazz players who scored in double figures, led by Donovan Mitchell’s 30 points and Jordan Clarkson’s 19 off the bench.
Beverley’s team was unable to slow the Jazz down from three-point range, with Utah making 48.6% (17 of 35) of them.
Beverley had drove to the basket and went by 7-1 Jazz center Rudy Gobert, tumbling after he had gone airborne, then falling hard on the court. After Beverley grabbed his elbow, he clutched his wrist a few seconds later.
He dashed off the court and toward the locker room as play continued, forcing the Clippers to call a timeout with 10:02 left to get another player on the court, inserting Lou Williams for Beverley.
