Austin Rivers    G  Clippers

 

 

Austin Rivers (concussion) is expected to play Monday vs. the Spurs. He's officially being listed as questionable, but he's cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol testing, so it would be surprising if he weren't able to get out there. With Rivers back in action, Jamil Wilson or Lou Williams will return to the second unit, and there will be fewer minutes available for C.J. Williams and Jawun Evans. Stay tuned.

Rivers (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Saturday's game against Miami, Brad Turner of the LA Times reports. As expected, Rivers will remain out for a second straight game after the concussion kept him out of Friday's loss to the Wizards. His absence Saturday looks to be mostly precautionary, as the Clippers have already stated that he'll return to action Monday in San Antonio.

Austin Rivers (concussion) is out Saturday night vs. the Heat. The good news is he will be ready to go against the Spurs on Monday. Rivers was almost able to make it through the protocol, which means he's very close to being symptom-free. With him out tonight, Lou Williams will be very busy while Milos Teodosic should see minutes in the upper 20s. C.J. Williams could play while Jawun Evans takes a back seat after a big Friday.

Austin Rivers (concussion) is still going through the NBA's concussion protocol and is unlikely to play Saturday vs. the Heat. If Rivers is still in concussion protocol as of Saturday morning, there is virtually zero chance he'll be cleared to play Saturday night. Jawun Evans had a terrific game off the Clippers bench Friday night, finishing with 15 points, six assists, six rebounds and five steals in 40 minutes. However, Milos Teodosic (rest) will return Saturday night, so Evans won't be able to log as many minutes.

Rivers (concussion) is doubtful for Saturday's contest against the Heat, Elliott Teaford of the Torrance Daily Breeze reports. He must clear the league's concussion protocol before seeing the court. Rivers suffered the concussion during Wednesday's game against the Magic, which caused him to miss Friday's game against the Wizards. It appears unlikely he'll play in Saturday's contest either, which should allow for Milos Teodosic and Lou Williams to see the bulk of the team's minutes at guard. Jawun Evans, Sindarius Thornwell and C.J. Williams all remain candidates to see backup run.

Austin Rivers (concussion) will not play Friday or Saturday. He is going to be re-evaluated after tonight's game against the Wizards, but he simply won't be far along enough in the protocol to play. In other words, the team doesn't know if he's symptom-free yet, so he still has too many steps to go through before he gets cleared. With him out, we'll see C.J. Williams probably start while Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans figure to get in the rotation.

Rivers (concussion) has been ruled out for Friday's matchup against the Wizards, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rivers left Wednesday's matchup with the Magic in the second quarter after taking an elbow to the head and was unable to return. There is no timetable on his return yet, and with the Clippers playing a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday, his status for Saturday's matchup against the Heat is in question. CJ Williams started the second half for the Clippers with Rivers out, which could be an indication of who will start on Friday, however more information on who will fill in for Rivers should come out as we get closer to Friday's game.

Austin Rivers (concussion) has been diagnosed with a concussion and he has been ruled out for Friday against the Wizards. There was some concern that Rivers had suffered a concussion because he leaned right into Jonathon Simmons' elbow as Simmons was driving to the basket. Rivers is now going to have to go through the concussion protocol and there's a good chance he misses more than just Friday. Besides Milos Teodosic, Wes Johnson and Lou Williams gaining more value, there really isn't a pickup to make here in most fantasy leagues.

Rivers has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's matchup with the Magic as he undergoes concussion testing, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rivers took an elbow to the head in the second quarter of the Clippers matchup with the Magic on Wednesday and has been ruled out for the rest of the game as he undergoes concussion testing. The Clippers next game is Friday against the Wizards, and Rivers should be considered questionable for that matchup until more information comes out. Prior to the injury, Rivers played 17 minutes, recording nine points, two rebounds, one steal and one block.
