Knicks' Austin Rivers: Available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (Achilles) is available for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

Rivers missed the last two games due to right Achilles soreness, but he'll be able to return to the court against Portland. It's unclear whether he'll have any minutes restrictions during his first game back in action.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (Achilles) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

The 28-year-old has been sidelined the past two games with a sore right Achilles, but he may be able to retake the court Sunday. Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley could continue to see increased run if Rivers is unable to retake the court.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Still out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (Achilles) remains out Friday against the Kings.

Right Achilles soreness will cost Rivers a second straight contest. Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley could see extra minutes as a result.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Officially out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (Achilles) will not play Thursday versus the Warriors, Chris Iseman of NorthJersey.com reports.

Rivers was initially considered doubtful for Thursday's game, so it's unsurprising to see him formally ruled out. Frank Ntilikina (knee) will also sit out Thursday after having been considered doubtful, but the Knicks will at least get Alec Burks (ankle) back on the court.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Doubtful Thursday at Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers is considered doubtful for Thursday's game against Golden State due to a sore right Achilles.

Rivers hasn't been formally ruled out, but he'll likely miss Thursday's game, and it's possible he could also sit Friday on the second night of a back-to-back set. Frank Ntilikina (knee) is also doubtful, but the Knicks should get Alec Burks (ankle) back from an extended absence.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers recorded two points (1-6 FG, 0-4 3PT), two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes during the 106-103 loss to Cleveland on Friday.

Rivers has not had many successful shooting nights this season and the trend continued in the loss Friday. The guard has only exceeded 50 percent from the floor twice this season in eight appearances. He also has not produced much outside of his shooting ability and is hard to consider a viable option off the bench for the time being.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Handles big minutes as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers posted 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes Monday in the Knicks' 109-88 loss to the Hornets.

Rivers entered the starting five for the first time all season, filling in at shooting guard for the injured Reggie Bullock (hip). Though his line was respectable enough, Rivers' big minutes total is probably the more notable takeaway. If Bullock misses additional time, Rivers could make for an intriguing short-term pickup, given head coach Tom Thibodeau's historic tendencies to run tight rotations with his starters receiving ample playing time.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Joins starting five Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers will start Monday's game against the Hornets, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old will receive his first start of the season with Reggie Bullock (hip) unavailable Monday. Rivers is averaging 11.8 points, 2.8 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 26.5 minutes while shooting 48.4 percent from deep off the bench this season, and he figures to have a more significant role at Charlotte.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Leads comeback in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers scored a season-high 23 points (9-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt) while adding three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 112-100 win over the Jazz.

The Knicks were down by as much as 18 points in the first half and 13 at halftime, but Rivers helped power a comeback by scoring 14 straight points in the fourth quarter and draining four three-pointers in the final five minutes. His output has been up and down in the four games since he made his season debut, but Rivers gives New York a player capable of heating up in a heartbeat as part of the second unit.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Solid in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers posted 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists over 17 minutes in Saturday's victory over the Pacers.

Rivers made the most of his time on the court, helping carry the Knicks to victory with a pair of key buckets down the stretch in his second game since returning from a groin injury. He could be in line for more minutes as the season progresses if he is able to string together more performances like the one he put together Saturday.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Playing Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) will play Thursday against the Raptors, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Despite not having a chance to play 5-on-5 in practice, Rivers will suit up for Thursday's game. We shouldn't expect him to see significant minutes, and he'll likely be on a restriction.

December 31, 2020 11:48 AM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Listed questionable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against Toronto, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Rivers has yet to play this season, but this is the first time he's been listed as questionable, so he appears to be making significant progress as he works his way back from a sore right groin. Given the time off, Rivers could be limited if he's cleared to play Thursday.

December 28, 2020 03:12 PM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Out again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

It'll be another absence for Rivers, who's already missed the first three games of the season while working back from a strained groin. Rivers was able to go through a limited practice last week, but it's unclear how far away he is from returning to game action.

December 27, 2020 09:28 PM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Won't suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Rivers has gradually increased his activity in practice while he manages a sore right groin, but he's not quite ready to make his Knicks debut just yet. With Immanuel Quickley (hip) also listed as doubtful for the contest, head coach Tom Thibodeau will likely turn to Dennis Smith as the top backup to starting point guard Elfrid Payton.

December 24, 2020 03:24 PM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Does more in practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) was able to do more in practice Thursday but the team remains non-committal to a return schedule, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Rivers has been dealing with right groin soreness since the preseason, and he missed Wednesday's opener against the Pacers. He remains without a clear timetable for a return, and it seems likely he'll sit out Saturday against the 76ers.

December 22, 2020 10:56 PM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) will not play in Wednesday's opener against the Pacers, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

No surprise here, considering Rivers missed the entire preseason while dealing with a groin issue. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Rivers has yet to return to practice, so it's likely the guard will miss multiple games to begin the regular season.

December 22, 2020 02:00 AM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: No practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) did not practice Monday, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

Rivers is still nursing the groin injury that kept him sidelined throughout the week-and-a-half-long preseason. At this rate, the veteran guard will most likely be unavailable for Wednesday's regular-season opener.

December 18, 2020 12:24 PM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Likely to remain out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) is likely out Friday against the Cavaliers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Rivers will probably miss all of the preseason due to a right groin injury. It's unclear if he'll be ready for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Pacers.

December 16, 2020 11:44 AM
Knicks' Austin Rivers: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) is out for Wednesday's preseason contest against the Cavaliers.

A sore right groin continues to sideline the guard. The Knicks' final preseason game is Friday against the Cavaliers.

Knicks' Austin Rivers: Out for preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (groin) is out for Friday's preseason opener against the Pistons, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

As expected, Rivers will sit while dealing with a groin injury. Elfrid Payton and Alec Burks are starting in the backcourt, with RJ Barrett at small forward.
