Austin Rivers expected back Friday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pelicans guard Austin Rivers is expected back in the starting lineup Friday against the Jazz, after sitting out the team's alst game due to a respiratory infection. Rivers got a few days off in order to rest, and told The Times-Picayune he is feeling much better after testing himself Thursday.

"I got a good workout yesterday, and today we had a pretty tough shootaround," he said Friday. "I was able to get a pretty good wind, so I'll be fine. At the end of the day, when you go out there and start playing your adrenaline gets going, you forget everything. I'm just going to go out there and play."

Rivers has stepped his game up recently, averaging 10.0 points and 2.8 assists per game in the month of March. He might end up in the starting lineup Friday with Brian Roberts and Eric Gordon at risk due to knee injuries.

Austin Rivers looking for consistent role
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Pelicans guard Austin Rivers has seen his role shrink a bit in recent games, as he failed to eclipse the 20-minute mark for the second straight game Tuesday against the Cavaliers.

Rivers did well with his 16 minutes Tuesday, scoring seven points on 2 of 3 shooting with one 3-pointer in as many attempts. He added two rebounds and turned the ball over twice as well in the 100-89 win.

Rivers has improved on his dreadful rookie campaign, but has seen his role shrink amid a reshaped rotation. He is averaging just 5.6 points per game, despite improving his shooting to 39.9 percent from the field and 38.2 percent from three-point range.
