Rivers (elbow) is likely to play in Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Rivers missed Monday's game against the Pelicans with an elbow injury and while the Clippers have been eliminated from the playoffs, it appears the sixth-year guard will give it a go one more time during the 2017-18 season. With Lou Williams (ankle) out, Rivers could see a sizable workload, though he'll still come with plenty of risk as a DFS play considering he's fresh off an injury and playing in a meaningless game. It seems more likely guys like Tyrone Wallace, C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell benefit from Williams' absence.
Rivers (elbow) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's season finale against the Lakers, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports. Rivers joins Lou Williams (ankle) as players questionable to play, though it wouldn't be surprising if both ended up being held out considering the Clippers are out of playoff contention. That will be something to monitor throughout the day Wednesday, but if both were to sit out a second straight game, the likes of Tyrone Wallace, C.J. Williams and Sindarius Thornwell would see added run in the backcourt once again.
Rivers is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to right elbow soreness, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports. Rivers played 39 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Nuggets, so it's possible he picked up the injury after that heavy of a minutes load. Additionally, with the Clippers officially eliminated from playoff contention, the team may be looking to take a cautious approach with some of its better players for the final two games. Expect another update on Rivers after Los Angeles' shootaround in the morning.
