Patrick Beverley out indefinitely after sustaining fracture in left hand

In a setback for an oft-injured Clippers roster that had just begun to get healthier, starting guard Patrick Beverley is out indefinitely after fracturing his left hand during the win against Phoenix on Thursday and undergoing surgery Friday, the team announced before its game against Houston.

The surgery at the Kerlan-Jobe Surgery Center repaired the fourth metacarpal on his left hand, an injury he sustained in the fourth quarter when he attempted to grab an offensive rebound brought down by Suns guard Chris Paul. Beverley immediately looked at and shook the hand but initially waved off coach Tyronn Lue when he asked if he was all right, Lue said before Friday’s tipoff against Houston.
