Analysis: Danilo Gallinari's return didn't have much an effect numbers-wise on Rivers, who was coming off a season-high 30-point effort against Minnesota on Sunday and is averaging 19.7 points and five assists over his last seven games. It's arguably the best two-week run of the sixth-year guard's career.
Dec. 4 6:41 AM PT7:41 AM MT8:41 AM CT9:41 AM ET14:41 GMT22:41 7:41 AM MST9:41 AM EST18:41 UAE15:419:41 ET8:41 AM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 30 points Sunday, going 9 of 14 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-106.

Dec. 2 1:43 PM PT2:43 PM MT3:43 PM CT4:43 PM ET21:43 GMT5:43 2:43 PM MST4:43 PM EST1:43 UAE (+1)22:4316:43 ET3:43 PM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored nine points Saturday on 4-of-15 shooting as the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Dallas Mavericks 108-82.

Analysis: Rivers may benefit the most stats-wise from Blake Griffin's absence, as he showed by producing a season-high point total in the first game his injured teammate missed. Averaging 19 points, six assists and 1.3 steals over his last four outings, he's now a must-own player for fantasy purposes with the Clippers in such a shorthanded state.

Nov. 14 11:16 PM PT12:16 AM MT1:16 AM CT2:16 AM ET7:16 GMT15:16 12:16 AM MST2:16 AM EST11:16 UAE08:162:16 ET1:16 AM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 11 points Monday on 3-of-13 shooting as the Los Angeles Clippers fell to the Philadelphia 76ers 109-105. Rivers grabbed three rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 36:57 on the floor. He tacked on two steals. Rivers went 2 of 6 from 3-point range.
Analysis: With occasional performances like this, Rivers continues to be a headache for fantasy owners. Though he's 14 of 27 on 3-point tries while averaging 17.8 points over his last four games, the inconsistent guard is shooting 38.8 percent overall during the Clippers' six-game losing streak. The one positive is that's getting plenty of opportunities to shoot with the Clips during with a slew of injuries.
Nov. 11 9:52 PM PT10:52 PM MT11:52 PM CT12:52 AM ET5:52 GMT13:52 10:52 PM MST12:52 AM EST9:52 UAE06:520:52 ET11:52 PM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 17 points Friday, going 5 of 11 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder 120-111.

Rivers pulled down three rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 34:21 of playing time. He tacked on two steals. Rivers went 5 of 9 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Rivers is feeling it over the last three games, averaging 20 points while going 12 of 21 from beyond the 3-point arc.
Nov. 9 11:22 AM PT12:22 PM MT1:22 PM CT2:22 PM ET19:22 GMT3:22 12:22 PM MST2:22 PM EST23:22 UAE20:2214:22 ET1:22 PM CTNaN:� - Rivers says he will play in Friday's game despite dealing with a sprained left ankle.
Analysis: Rivers, who scored 24 points against the Spurs on Tuesday, apparently suffered the injury in practice. The Clippers already have a depleted backcourt without Patrick Beverley, Danilo Gallinari and Milos Teodosic.
Nov. 8 10:00 PM PT11:00 PM MT12:00 AM CT1:00 AM ET6:00 GMT14:00 11:00 PM MST1:00 AM EST10:00 UAE07:001:00 ET12:00 AM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 24 points Tuesday, going 10 of 17 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers fell to the San Antonio Spurs 120-107. Rivers grabbed two rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -13 in his 36:03 on the floor. He added two steals. Rivers went 4 of 6 from 3-point range.
Analysis: While some of the Clippers' stars struggled in this one, Rivers came through with a season-high point total that few could have seen coming after he went 6 of 21 from the floor over his previous two games. While the shooting guard's offensive production has been very hit or miss, he's been a real asset in the steals category by amassing 17 over his last seven outings.
Nov. 5 2:41 PM PT3:41 PM MT4:41 PM CT5:41 PM ET22:41 GMT6:41 3:41 PM MST5:41 PM EST2:41 UAE (+1)23:4117:41 ET4:41 PM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 12 points Sunday, going 4 of 12 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Miami Heat 104-101. Rivers pulled down two rebounds and had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 31:50 of playing time. He added one block and four steals. Rivers went 2 of 6 from 3-point range.

Nov. 4 5:11 PM PT6:11 PM MT7:11 PM CT8:11 PM ET0:11 GMT8:11 5:11 PM MST7:11 PM EST4:11 UAE (+1)01:1120:11 ET6:11 PM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored seven points Saturday, going 2 of 9 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers fell to the Memphis Grizzlies 113-104. Rivers pulled down three rebounds and dished out three assists, tallying a plus-minus of -2 in his 38:17 of playing time. He added two steals. Rivers went 1 of 4 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Rivers was coming off a 19-point performance against Dallas, two days after he went 2 of 10 from the floor while managing just five points in 27 minutes against Golden State. Though he's getting considerable playing time with Milos Teodosic still sidelined, Doc's son can be very hard to trust from a fantasy perspective on a game-by-game basis.
Nov. 2 8:53 AM PT9:53 AM MT10:53 AM CT11:53 AM ET15:53 GMT23:53 8:53 AM MST10:53 AM EST19:53 UAE16:5311:53 ET9:53 AM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 19 points Wednesday on 7-of-12 shooting as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Dallas Mavericks 119-98.

Oct. 29 9:36 PM PT10:36 PM MT11:36 PM CT12:36 AM ET4:36 GMT12:36 9:36 PM MST11:36 PM EST8:36 UAE05:360:36 ET10:36 PM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 20 points Saturday, going 6 of 12 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers lost to the Detroit Pistons 95-87.

Oct. 28 10:37 AM PT11:37 AM MT12:37 PM CT1:37 PM ET17:37 GMT1:37 10:37 AM MST12:37 PM EST21:37 UAE19:3713:37 ET12:37 PM CTNaN:� - Rivers (finger) is available for Saturday's game against the Pistons.
Analysis: Despite having a dislocated pinkie, Rivers was at shootaround Saturday and should be good to go.
Oct. 27 9:30 PM PT10:30 PM MT11:30 PM CT12:30 AM ET4:30 GMT12:30 9:30 PM MST11:30 PM EST8:30 UAE06:300:30 ET11:30 PM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored 16 points Thursday, going 5 of 11 from the field, as the Los Angeles Clippers topped the Portland Trail Blazers 104-103.

Analysis: Milos Teodosic's injury has created more of an opportunity for the coach's son, and he looked far more comfortable as a starter after going 3 for 18 from the field while coming off the bench for the first two games. Rivers isn't a sure thing by any means, but his fantasy arrow has started to point up.
Oct. 22 1:12 AM PT2:12 AM MT3:12 AM CT4:12 AM ET8:12 GMT16:12 1:12 AM MST3:12 AM EST12:12 UAE10:124:12 ET3:12 AM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored five points Saturday on 2-of-7 shooting as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Phoenix Suns 130-88.

Analysis: Rivers is expected to take over the starting role after Milos Teodosic left in the second quarter because of a left foot injury. Teodosic is out indefinitely.
Oct. 20 7:12 AM PT8:12 AM MT9:12 AM CT10:12 AM ET14:12 GMT22:12 7:12 AM MST9:12 AM EST18:12 UAE16:1210:12 ET9:12 AM CTNaN:� - Austin Rivers scored two points Thursday on 1-of-11 shooting as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 108-92.
