  • Wizards' Austin Rivers: Returning to bench
    By RotoWire Staff

    Rivers will come off the bench Saturday against the Cavaliers. With John Wall (personal/illness) back in the starting five, Rivers will come off the pine. He's averaging 7.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 22.8 minutes.

  • Rivers will start at point guard in Wednesday's game against the Hawks. As expected, with John Wall (personal) missing Wednesday's game, Rivers will be thrust into the starting point guard role while the Wizards maintain the three-game lineup they've rolled out for each of the last two games. Rivers has played a modest role off the bench for Washington this season, but he should see a sizable bump in usage Wednesday night given that he and Tomas Satoransky or the only healthy true point guards at the team's disposal.

  • Rivers is expected to start at point guard Wednesday against the Hawks, Chris Miller of NBCS Washington reports. With John Wall (personal) missing his first game of the season, it seems coach Scott Brooks will throw Rivers into the starting five. When Rivers has seen at least 24 minutes this season, he's averaged 10.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.1 steals. That's not exactly encouraging from a DFS perspective, and it's possible Tomas Satoransky ends up seeing a higher usage rate for the contest, despite coming off the bench.

  • Rivers compiled 18 points (7-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 28 minutes during Saturday's 116-110 win over the Heat. Rivers mustered up season highs in scoring and rebounding while matching his season high in assists. He has quickly asserted himself as one of the team's top perimeter defenders, though that hasn't exactly translated to the stat sheet on most nights. With that being said, Rivers is a decent option in deeper leagues and would probably become a must-own player in standard leagues if John Wall were to suffer an injury.

  • Rivers recorded five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds, one steal, and one block in 10 minutes during Friday's 140-111 win over the Guangzhou Long-Lions. Rivers drew the start in the preseason finale with John Wall and Bradley receiving the night off for rest. Rivers only played precious few minutes, but he made the most of them, which despite the lower level of competition bodes well for his ability to remain relevant while backing up one of the best backcourts in the league.
