Los Angeles Clippers guard Beverley has surgery on right knee

Acquired from Houston in the Chris Paul trade, Beverley performed extremely well to start the season.

This is definitely bad news for a Clippers team that has lost nine consecutive games and finds itself among the bottom rung in the Western Conference.

REUTERS/ Jayne Kamin-OnceaLos Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan may soon be subject of trade talks between teams.

Just last month, vice president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Jordan - who has spent his entire 10-year career with the organisation - is a "Clipper for life". He was averaging 12.2 points per game with the Clippers in 11 games this season. Teodosic, once healthy, and Austin Rivers will both soak up the majority of Beverley's minutes.

Now the Clippers will really see how well their investment in Blake Griffin will pay off. The team has already played itself into a hole in a hard Western Conference, lacks depth in the backcourt and should have real concerns about the Griffin-Jordan pairing. This would end up being his final game of the season.

Paul's decision to move to the Houston Rockets seems to have affected the veteran the most as he's found it hard to get easy baskets without a natural playmaker out on the floor. Guys with his athleticism and skill set tend to age quicker than guys with more well-rounded games. However, with Patrick Beverley out for the season, Milos Teodosic still out for an unspecified amount of time, and an offensive unit that's fallen to among the league's worst during their losing streak, there are plenty of longterm concerns for L.A.
