Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley is expected to play in Game 2 against the Portland Trail Blazers after spraining his right knee in Game 1.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reports that Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley will reportedly play in Game 2 against the Portland Trail Blazers after spraining his right knee during Portland's 122-120 victory in Game 1 on Sunday.

After undergoing an MRI on his damaged right knee Monday morning, Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverley has been cleared to play in Game 2 of the Western Conference first-round series against Portland on Wednesday, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The MRI showed no new damage to Beverley's right knee, sources said. Beverley suffered a torn meniscus in the knee on March 27.

The Rockets issued this release (via the Houston Chronicle here).

Patrick Beverley underwent an examination this morning with team physician Dr. Walt Lowe. The evaluation revealed no acute issues. Beverley is listed as day-to-day, but will likely be available for Game 2 on Wednesday.

Beverley finished with nine points (on 3-for-8 shooting), six rebounds and two assists before fouling out of Game 1 in overtime.

Damian Lillard, Beverley's primary defensive assignment, posted 31 points (on 9-for-19 shooting), nine rebounds and five assists, including five points in the final minute of overtime.

Beverley suffered meniscus damage in his right knee back in March but was able to avoid surgery.
