Beverley Unable to Shake Injury Bug This Season

The 2015-16 campaign has been mired in intermittent injury issues for Beverley, who has never played more than 56 games in a season. He went down with an ankle injury in November that he reaggravated in January. In addition, Beverley missed another game in January while visiting his sick grandmother.

When Beverley's been on the floor, he's emerged as an elite three-point shooter. He's hitting a career-high 40.3 percent of his shots from distance this season, making him a valuable part of the Rockets offense after years of being an overall minus. Houston has been significantly better when Beverley has been on the floor on both ends this season, according to Basketball-Reference.com.

Houston improves on both ends of the floor with Beverley returning to the lineup.
