Patrick Beverley will be out for the next 10-14 days with a partial tear of a muscle in his midsection, the Houston Rockets announced on Friday.

The diagnosis rules Beverley out for Friday's game against Dallas and the team's upcoming road trip that will take the Rockets to Utah, Los Angeles for a date against the Clippers, and Portland. 

Jeremy Lin will return to the starting lineup at point guard. It also leads to an increased role off the bench for Aaron Brooks, who will for now take over the team's backup point guard role.
