Rivers has been diagnosed with a bruised heel and will be out for two weeks, Elliott Teaford of the Torrance Daily Breeze reports. What was originally thought to simply be a sore right Achilles has turned out to be a bruised heel, which will sideline Rivers at least two weeks before he's re-evaluated. In the meantime, Milos Teodosic, Jawun Evans, Lou Williams and C.J. Williams will seemingly continue to see extra run.
Rivers (Achilles) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies, Brad Davison of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rivers will be missing a second straight game with a sore right Achilles and he's expected to have another exam performed at some point over the next few days. That should provide further light on how long Rivers could sit out, so keep an eye out for another update in the near future. With Rivers out, the Clippers are set to start C.J. Williams and Wesley Johnson at shooting guard and small forward, respectively, with both players seeing increased roles.
Rivers (Achilles) did not participate in morning shootaround and remains questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Grizzlies, Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rivers sat out Sunday's tilt against the Hornets while nursing a strained right Achilles. He was tentatively considered likely to play Tuesday, but may be feeling more discomfort than expected. If he's ultimately held out once more, C.J. Williams, Jawun Evans and Sindarius Thornwell are all strong candidates to see extended run again.
Rivers (Achilles) is considered questionable to play Tuesday against the Grizzlies, Tom Azarly of ClutchPoints reports. After sitting out Sunday, it sounded like Rivers was fully expected to play Tuesday, but apparently the team is a little less optimistic as tipoff approaches. If he's forced to sit for a second straight game, C.J. Williams, Jawun Evans and Sindarius Thornwell could see unexpected minutes yet again.
Rivers (Achilles) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Hornets, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports. While the Achilles injury isn't considered serious, the Clippers will hold him out Sunday to avoid any additional strain. Rivers is fully expected to be back in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup against the Grizzlies, so this should just be a one-game layoff. With Rivers out Sunday, Lou Williams should get all the minutes he can handle, while guys like C.J. Williams, Jawun Evans and Sindarius Thornwell could all pick up more minutes in the backcourt as well.
