Beverley recently returned from a torn meniscus injury that sidelined him for about 3 weeks, but still managed to play 38 minutes in Game 1. Primarily in the game to defend Blazers point guard Damian Lillard, Beverley still contributed on offense, scoring 9 points and grabbing 6 rebounds.

There was cause for concern that Beverley’s injury could have been more severe, but it looks as if for the moment, he will still be available to play in the series.
