  • Rivers finished with 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two assists and a rebound over 23 minutes in Monday's 114-105 win against the Knicks. Rivers is averaging 15.0 points per game over the past three outings. He continues to be productive even with Chris Paul back and healthy. Occasionally he'll see a start when the starters are rested, so his fantasy value tends to go up and down based on the amount of playing time he receives. He'll be a nice DFS sleeper over the next couple of games against the defensively challenged Lakers and Mavericks.

  • Rivers registered 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), one rebound and one assist over 33 minutes in Thursday's 129-114 loss to the Nuggets. Rivers' start at shooting guard was part of the trickle-down effect of DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin both receiving the night off for rest. The fifth-year pro put the opportunity to good use, equaling Chris Paul for the team lead in shot attempts and draining better than 50 percent of them for the third time in the last five games. Rivers has also hit double digits in the scoring column in four of the last six contests, but his production naturally fluctuates relative to the amount of playing time he receives. He's expected to return to the bench for Saturday night's showdown with the Cavs.

  • Rivers will draw the start for Thursday's tilt against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. With the Clippers down Blake Griffin (rest) and DeAndre Jordan (rest), coach Doc Rivers will opt to go with a small starting lineup by inserting Rivers at the shooting guard, sliding J.J. Redick and Luc Mbah a Moute up one position each, and starting Marreese Speights at center. In the stretch of 14 games that Chris Paul missed earlier in the year due to thumb injury, Rivers averaged 16.0 points and 4.4 assists across 34.7 minutes per game, and could see a similar workload against the Nuggets.

  • Rivers tallied 20 points (7-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, and four assists across 32 minutes during Thursday's 114-98 victory over the Grizzlies. Rivers snapped a four game cold streak -- where he was shooting 32 percent from the field -- when he torched the Grizzlies on Thursday for 20 points in 32 minutes off the bench. While his role has taken a hit since the return of Chris Paul, coach Doc Rivers isn't afraid to give his son big minutes against good teams, occasionally resulting in impressive performances. That being said, Rivers is still an inconsistent shoot-first guard, so his fantasy value is limited in most fantasy formats.

  • Rivers posted 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt) with five rebounds, four assists and two steals over 26 minutes in Wednesday's 122-103 loss against the Rockets. Rivers had a nice bounce-back game after misfiring on six of his eight shots and ending up with just five points in Sunday's game against the Hornets. He has had difficulties with foul trouble over the past three games but those fouls didn't limit his effectiveness in this one.
