      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Posts 17 points off bench Friday

      Rivers posted 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two assists, a rebound and a steal over 24 minutes in Friday's 111-90 victory over the Pelicans. Rivers was highly efficient with his playing time, managing a season-high in points while posting 64 percent shooting from the field, also a high-water mark. While the strong offensive performance was certainly encouraging, it's worth noting that Rivers was coming off three consecutive single-digit scoring nights over which he'd only shot 5-for-16. In turn, that three-game stretch came on the heels of five consecutive games with 10 points or better for the four-year pro, making it evident that his streaky performances make him a risky fantasy proposition at best in all formats.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Returns to bench

      Rivers returned to the bench Friday against the Warriors and finished with 10 (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-4 FT) points, three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 26 minutes. With Chris Paul's return to the starting lineup, Rivers was sent back to the bench, but he still managed to play 26 minutes as the team's primary backup point guard. Even with Paul back and looking healthy, Rivers should still see plenty of time on the court as J.J. Redick continues to nurse a back injury.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Gets the Start Thursday versus Suns

      Rivers will get the start Thursday against the Suns with Chris Paul out, Craig Grialou of 98.7 FM reports. With Chris Paul's surprise late scratch, Rivers will get the start tonight. The Clippers backcourt will be shallow with J.J. Redick also out. This means Rivers and Jamal Crawford should see a lot more minutes than usual.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Contributes 10 points in start

      Rivers, starting for the injured Chris Paul (groin), pitched in 10 points (4-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), an assist, a steal, and a block over 31 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 loss to the Rockets. Rivers was unable to do much with the increased opportunity, essentially producing numbers that were very similar to the ones he amasses in his customary bench role. After shooting 50 percent from the field in any prior game this season in which he's drained at least one bucket, Rivers' could only muster a 33 percent accuracy rate on a season-high 12 shot attempts.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Will start Saturday

      Rivers will start Saturday's game, Rowan Kavner of reports. With Chris Paul (groin) officially ruled out for Saturday's game, Rivers will take command of the starting point guard job. The 23-year-old guard is averaging 6.4 points in 18.8 minutes per game, but those numbers figure to rise with a juicy matchup against the Kings next on the slate.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Posts seven points in 18 minutes Monday

      Rivers posted seven points (3-6 FG, 1-1 FT), one assist, and one block in a win against the Suns on Monday. This was a nice improvement for the 23-year-old after failing to score in 12 minutes Saturday against the Kings. Rivers was passed up a bit for backup guard minutes by Jamal Crawford, who logged 26 minutes to Rivers' 18, but Rivers should still see plenty of opportunities with the relatively thin nature of the Clippers' backcourt.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Totals 14 points off bench Thursday

      Rivers totaled 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), two rebounds, an assist, and a steal over 24 minutes in Thursday's 104-88 victory over the Mavericks. Rivers notched his first points from the field in the new season, after doing all of his scoring from the charity stripe in the opener Wednesday. The 23-year-old saw a nice bump in minutes from the 16 he'd played against Sacramento the previous night, with the increased playing time likely due in large part to the Clippers' reasonably comfortable lead for much of the second half. Regardless of the circumstances, Rivers' offensive output, which included two three-pointers and 50 percent shooting overall from beyond the arc, was an encouraging sign. This holds particularly true for a young player like Rivers, who is trying to build on some of the improvement he displayed in the last two months of the 2014-15 campaign.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Scores 16 in win over Portland

      Rivers provided 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and a block in a preseason win over the Blazers on Thursday. Rivers has really found a nice home with the Clippers and it may be as simple as playing under his father. With that said, the playing time will be in fluctuation with all the talent the Clippers have. Rivers will have to compete with Jamal Crawford and Lance Stephenson for minutes off the bench and likely won't see more than 15 minutes per game.

      Clippers SG Austin Rivers plays 19 minutes in Wednesday's win

      Clippers guard Austin Rivers (mouth) played 19 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Hornets, scoring four points (2-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt) while adding one assist. Rivers looks to be good to go after taking a hit to the mouth during a recent practice, but he still looks quite miscast as an NBA rotation player. As a sub-40 percent career shooter from the field who also struggles from both the free-throw and three-point lines, Rivers likely isn't worth tracking unless he enters the starting lineup when Chris Paul goes down with an injury.

      Clippers' Austin Rivers: Back at practice

      Rivers (mouth) practiced in full Tuesday, Dan Wokie of the OC Register reports. Rivers had several teeth knocked out during practice near the end of last week, but after undergoing oral surgery, he's back on the floor Tuesday and it looks as though he will not be limited as the regular season approaches.
