Austin Rivers    G  Pelicans

 

 

Austin Rivers scored five points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Suns on Saturday. He started the second half and should be in the first unit until Milos Teodosic (foot) can return. Rivers can be a bit of a headache, but he's certainly worth a look in most fantasy leagues to see how he fares in the post-CP3 era.

Austin Rivers made 1-of-11 from the field for two points with two assists and two steals in 26 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday. It's his first game back on the court since he injured his glute back on Oct. 1. Rivers is probably going to be staying on the bench because Milos Teodosic looked good in the first unit, but he should get minutes as a combo wing. He can stay on the wire until he gets hot, though.

Austin Rivers will come off the bench against the Lakers on Thursday. That means he's behind Patrick Beverley for the shooting guard spot, but Rivers has played plenty of small forward. He's more of a deeper 12-team guy, but we've seen him get hot before.

Austin Rivers is not on the injury report and listed as a starter for Thursday's game against the Lakers. He missed most of the preseason with a glute injury, but he's been back at practice since Sunday. Rivers can play some small forward for this team and coach Doc Rivers wants to go small more often, so he should still find himself getting minutes. He's worth owning in 12-team leagues.

Austin Rivers (glute) returned to practice on Sunday. Rivers had been sidelined since October 5 with a strained right glute, but with him getting through Sunday's practice, it looks like there's a chance he could be cleared for the Clippers' season opener on Thursday. Rivers might be starting for the Clippers this season, but it's tough to see him earning much more than 20 minutes a night while Lou Williams and Milos Teodosic are healthy.
