HOUSTON (AP) - Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley has been cleared to play in Game 2 on Wednesday night after injuring his right knee in the opening game of the first-round playoff series against Portland.

Beverley was injured when LaMarcus Aldridge knocked him down setting a pick with about a minute left in the Trail Blazers’ 122-120 overtime win on Sunday night. He missed eight games late in the season because of a torn meniscus in the same knee.

Beverley says he felt pain in the same area where he was injured before when he was knocked down on Sunday night. He didn’t feel any pain on Monday morning and says he’ll be ready to play on Wednesday.

He had nine points and six rebounds in Game 1.
