Wizards' Austin Rivers: Scores season-high 18 points in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wizards' Austin Rivers: Hands out five assists in Friday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Wizards' Austin Rivers: Draws start Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers will get the start in Friday's preseason game against the Guangzhou Long-Lions

Rivers and Tomas Satoransky are both included in the starting five because John Wall and Bradley Beal are getting the night off to rest up for the regular season. Rivers will undoubtedly slot into a bench role when the 2018-2019 campaign starts up.

Wizards' Austin Rivers: Struggles off the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers had five points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 21 minutes during Friday's 121-114 preseason victory over the Heat.

Rivers came off the bench for just five points Friday as he continues to carve out a role on his new team. He is going to be playing backup minutes behind both John Wall and Bradley Beal and is in line to see a drop in his fantasy production. He is going to be in the rotation but exactly how much playing time he sees remains to be seen. Standard league value is likely to be out of the question for Rivers barring an injury to one of the starters.

Wizards' Austin Rivers: Traded to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rivers was traded from the Clippers to the Wizards on Tuesday in exchange for Marcin Gortat, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

The Clippers were dealing with an extremely crowded backcourt coming into this offseason with Milos Teodosic, Lou Williams and a healthy Patrick Beverley. However, they ended up also adding another guard in Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in the first round of last week's draft, so someone clearly had to go. It turns out to be Rivers, who is now headed to Washington. With the move to the Wizards, Rivers value certainly isn't helped, as he'll be forced to back up All-Stars John Wall and Bradley Beal in the backcourt. As a result, it's safe to assume Rivers' career-high production of 15.1 points, 4.0 assists and 2.4 rebounds is set to take a bit of of hit. Rivers is also on an expiring $12.6 million contract, so there isn't much risk here for the Wizards.
