The Houston Rockets enter Game 5 on Wednesday against the Portland Trail Blazers in a must-win situation following a 123-120 loss in overtime on Sunday. The Rockets need a healthy team playing at their best to have any chance of coming back in this series, but point guard Patrick Beverley missed practice today, causing concern about his status for Game 5.

Mark Berman, sports director at FOX26 Houston, tweeted the following on Beverley's status.
Beverley played through his ailment on Sunday, but struggled and finished with just six points and an assist in 37 minutes.  If Beverley is not close to 100 percent on Wednesday, expect Jeremy Lin to see extended minutes.  Lin had just four points on 1-of-6 shooting from the floor and 2-of-2 from the free throw line, in 21 minutes on Sunday.

Beverley averaged 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 56 games this season. In two NBA seasons, he's averaged 8.3 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.
