Patrick Beverley is likely to play in Wednesday's playoff game between Houston and Portland.
Beverley underwent a MRI on Monday after injuring his knee in overtime of a Game 1 loss to the Trail Blazers. The guard missed several games at the end of the regular season with a torn meniscus.
"The evaluation revealed no acute issues," the Rockets stated in a release. "Beverley is listed as day-to-day, but will likely be available for Game 2 on Wednesday."
Beverley has started 55 times for the Rockets this season, averaging 10.2 points and 1.4 steals per game. He scored 9 points and recorded 6 rebounds in 38 minutes of the Rockets' 122-120 Game 1 loss.
Beverley is one of four former Razorbacks on active rosters in this year's NBA playoffs, alongside Nets guard Joe Johnson, Bobcats guard Jannero Pargo and Bulls forward Ronnie Brewer.
