Rockets' Austin Rivers: Sharp despite Game 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers notched 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists and a steal in 28 minutes off the bench during Thursday's Game 4 loss against the Lakers.

Rivers logged more than 16 minutes for the first time this series, or for the current playoffs for that matter. He responded with his best performance across the board. Eric Gordon has been struggling with his shot during the series -- if that continues to be the case, Rivers might make a case for a bigger role off the bench. He is making 44.4 percent of his three-point attempts in four games against the Lakers.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Scores 11 in 25 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers recorded 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 111-98 Game 2 win against the Thunder.

Rivers was feeling it from beyond the arc and added an impressive dunk for good measure. He played mistake-free basketball, committing zero turnovers while contributing across every category except blocks. With Russell Westbrook (quad) still sidelined, Rivers is being asked to initiate offense a bit more than usual of late. Still, he remains a somewhat inconsistent performer, as evidenced by the fact that he managed just four points (on 1-of-5 shooting), four boards and two dimes in 19 minutes during Tuesday's Game 1.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Erupts for career-high 41 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers racked up 41 points (14-20 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes during Sunday's 129-112 win over the Kings.

Rivers finished with a career-high scoring total, stepping up with Russell Westbrook (quad) and Eric Gordon (ankle) sidelined. Rivers caught fire from beyond the arc and missed just one shot attempt from two-point range while earning no shortage of trips to the charity stripe. Furthermore, he produced a well-rounded stat line and could be called upon to play significant minutes once again in Tuesday's matchup versus the Spurs.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Playing Tuesday vs. Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (personal) will play in Tuesday's final scrimmage against the Celtics, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Rivers exited the bubble Friday to attend to a family matter, but he made it back and quarantined in time to play in Houston's final scrimmage. That means he should also be available for the seeding game opener Friday against the Mavericks.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Leaves bubble for family matter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers exited the NBA bubble in Orlando on Friday in order to attend to an urgent family matter, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Rivers' status for Houston's first game of the resumed season July 31 versus the Mavericks remains up in the air until he's able to rejoin his teammates in Orlando, though Charania reports he's expected back sometime this weekend.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Rooted in bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers averaged 8.3 points, two rebounds and 1.9 assists across 22.1 minutes in 10 games since the All-Star break.

Rivers remains firmly in a bench role behind Russell Westbrook, though he's consistently seeing around 20 minutes a night. Since the break, he's finished in double digits three times, with his last performance dating back to March 10 against the Timberwolves, when he scored 11 points in 18 minutes of action.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Pours in 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers amassed 23 points (9-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 140-112 victory over Memphis.

Rivers got hot off the bench, scoring a season-high 23 points. Despite scoring in double figures in his last two outings, Rivers has struggled to find a consistent role this season. He is well outside the top 200 for the season and really serves as just a points streamer, and even that is a stretch based on his unproductive season thus far.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Goes for 14 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers notched 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound and one assist in 24 minutes off the bench during Monday's 123-112 win over the Knicks.

Rivers ended January on a strong note with five straight games with 10 or more points, but he has reached that mark just thrice in February and only once in his last five games. Neither Russell Westbrook (thumb) nor Eric Gordon (knee) played in this game so that boosted Rivers' playing time, and that could very well be the case again when the Rockets host the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Scores 14 off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers finished with 14 points (3-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three boards and one block in 29 minutes of a 127-91 loss to the Suns on Friday.

Rivers still came off the bench despite Russell Westbrook (rest) sitting out the second night of a back-to-back game. Rivers managed to finish second on his team in scoring despite not having the most efficient night. He'll likely come off the bench when his team returns to action against the Jazz on Sunday.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Sees 29 minutes despite illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (illness) provided 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes during Tuesday's 125-110 win over the Hornets.

Rivers missed Monday's practice due to an illness but was able to give it a go in this one. He has reached double figures in scoring in seven of his last 10 appearances. Nevertheless, Rivers is best reserved for use in deeper leagues.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Avoids injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (illness) doesn't appear on the Rockets' injury report ahead of Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

Rivers missed Monday's practice after falling ill, but he was apparently only dealing with a one-day bug. With Russell Westbrook (thumb) listed as doubtful for the contest, Rivers is a candidate to enter the starting five, though he should benefit from an uptick in playing time regardless of how he's deployed.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers missed practice Monday due to an illness, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Rivers did not appear on the Rockets' initial injury report, but he should nonetheless be considered questionable as Tuesday's game against Charlotte approaches. The Rockets have already ruled Clint Capela (heel) out for Tuesday, while Russell Westbrook is considered doubtful.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Scores season-high 21 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers had 21 points (7-21 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-8 FT), four rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 41 minutes during Monday's 126-117 win at Utah.

Rivers posted his best scoring output of the season despite shooting just 33.3 percent from the field and 25.0 percent from deep against one of the league's best defenses. He has scored in double digits in each of his last four outings and while he will head back to the bench once Russell Westbrook (rest) and James Harden (thigh) return -- something that could happen as soon as Wednesday -- he should remain productive as a scoring threat in the second unit.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers will get the start at shooting guard for Monday's matchup with the Jazz, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

Rivers will replace James Harden (thigh) in the starting lineup. With Russell Westbrook (rest) also sidelined, he should be in line for a relatively healthy workload.

January 27, 2020 02:04 PM
Rockets' Austin Rivers: Scores in double digits again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers tallied 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3PT, 1-4 FT), six rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 117-110 loss at Denver.

This was another productive outing off the bench for Rivers, who's scored 10-plus points in three straight games. He's been a productive player in Houston's second unit, and with James Harden (thigh) doubtful and Russell Westbrook (rest) ruled out, Rivers could be in line for an expanded role Monday at Utah.

Rockets' Austin Rivers: Makes minutes count in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers scored 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-3 3PT, 0-0 FT) and added one assist, one rebound and two steals across 19 minutes in Friday's 131-124 win over Minnesota.

Rivers hadn't scored that much since Dec. 3 against San Antonio and has now scored double-digits in back-to-back games since returning from a thumb injury. He'll look to keep the momentum going Sunday at Denver.

January 22, 2020 11:36 PM
Rockets' Austin Rivers: Scores 11 in 21 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers recorded 11 points (3-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, two steals and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 121-105 win over the Nuggets.

Rivers returned to the lineup following a two-game absence with a minor thumb injury and turned in a solid line considering his modest minute total. He has taken a small step back this season with regard to his role and stats, but Rivers is still at least a somewhat serviceable option in deeper leagues.

January 22, 2020 07:04 PM
Rockets' Austin Rivers: Will play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (thumb) will be available Wednesday against Denver, Salman Ali of Clutch Points reports.

Rivers missed two games with a minor thumb issue but, as expected, he'll be back in the lineup Wednesday night as theRockets look to snap a four-game skid.

January 21, 2020 06:04 PM
Rockets' Austin Rivers: Questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (thumb) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Rivers implied Monday that he plans to return Wednesday, but the Rockets will still consider him questionable and wait to see how his sprained right thumb feels after shootaround in the morning.

January 20, 2020 04:20 PM
Rockets' Austin Rivers: Out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers (thumb) will not play Monday against the Thunder, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Rivers was able to go through warmups, but he'll be held out again as he deals with a sprained thumb on his dominant right hand. Rivers did express confidence that he'll be able to return for Wednesday's game against Denver, however.
