  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Participates in shootaround

    Rivers (knee) went through shootaround Saturday but will remain a game-time call against Houston, Dane Moore of 'The Dane Moore NBA Podcast' reports. Rivers has missed two games with a left knee contusion but looks to be working his way back to the court. While it's certainly positive that he was able to take part in shootaround, Rivers' availability will come down to how he feels going through warmups.

  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Considered questionable

If the veteran guard remains out, expect Jaylen Nowell to continue handling the top backup guard stop behind D'Angelo Russell and Anthony Edwards (hip).

  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Can't get going versus Celtics

    Rivers provided two points (1-3 FG) and two rebounds across 25 minutes during Friday's 121-109 loss to Boston. Rivers wasn't part of the offensive mix in a big way Friday, attempting just three shots on the night en route to only two points after averaging 17.8 points per game over the previous four. Rivers was still among the starters against the Celtics but isn't guaranteed to retain a spot once Kyle Anderson (back) returns. However, Rivers still has some fantasy utility as long as he remains a starter and continues to see healthy minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Posts efficient shooting night

    Rivers ended Wednesday's 104-99 loss to the Mavericks with 21 points (8-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 36 minutes. Rivers has been deadly from beyond the arc of late, and that didn't change in Wednesday's performance. He scored nine of his 21 points from deep and has drilled three or more triples in four straight games. Rivers is now averaging 9.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals in 10 December appearances.

  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Scores in double digits again

    Rivers finished with 16 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 37 minutes during Monday's 116-106 victory over Dallas. Rivers has started in three of Minnesota's last four games due to the team's lack of depth, and the veteran has taken advantage of the opportunity, scoring in double digits in three straight contests. Rivers should be a solid streaming option but only in the short term, as he hadn't been very productive prior to the aforementioned three-game stretch.

  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Starting Monday

    Rivers is starting Monday's contest against the Mavericks. With the Timberwolves short-handed, Rivers will officially make his fifth start of the season. The veteran point guard has averaged 8.5 points, 1.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 steals across his first four starts this season.

  • Timberwolves' Austin Rivers: Posts 20 points, five steals in win

    Rivers accumulated 20 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and five steals over 31 minutes during Friday's 112-110 win over Oklahoma City. Rivers cobbled together his best performance of the season, basically setting season-high marks across the board. With a number of key pieces on the sideline, Rivers certainly made the most of what was a great opportunity. With that said, this really should be viewed as an outlier, brought on by good luck, as well as inferior opposition. He could be worth streaming in some situations but for the most part, a more reliable option may be the way to go.

However, with him out Wednesday, Jordan McLaughlin, Jaylen Nowell and possibly Bryn Forbes should see extended backcourt minutes off the bench. Rivers' next opportunity to play will be Friday versus the Grizzlies.
