Just two days after fracturing his right hand against Detroit, Rockets guard Pat Beverley underwent successful surgery.
Beverley is expected to miss 4-6 weeks while recovering from the procedure. The Rockets will miss Beverley in the lineup, but at least Jeremy Lin was back on the floor -- he's been out with back spasms -- on Monday versus the Dallas Mavericks as the Rockets are shorthanded in the backcourt.
Here are a few tweets from Beverley leading up to his surgery:
