The 31-year-old Beverley is averaging 8.0 points, 3.3 assists and 6.0 rebounds for the Clippers. He has knocked down 41.3 percent of his field goals and 32.8 percent of his three-pointers.
Beverley's calling cards are his tenacious defense and toughness, and those traits have helped the 23-11 Clips earn their third-place Western Conference mark.
The eight-year veteran out of Arkansas joined the Clippers after the Houston Rockets traded him following five years with the team.
His 2017-18 campaign started with promise, but he underwent an arthroscopic lateral meniscus repair and a microfracture procedure on his right knee and missed all but 11 games in 2017-18.
He returned in 2018-19 and played a huge role on a gritty Clippers team that surprised fans post-Lob City Era and finished 48-34 with a playoff berth. L.A. even took the Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors to six games in the first round.
Injuries have hindered him this season, unfortunately, with a calf injury, a concussion and a groin injury already costing him five games.
The Clips have gone in a few different directions when pressed to find a replacement for him in the starting lineup. Sixth man Lou Williams has started at the point for a few games, but head coach Doc Rivers has also opted to keep Sweet Lou in a reserve role and turn to Landry Shamet or Terance Mann instead.
