Austin Rivers (right Achilles) was helped off the floor in the third quarter of Friday’s game against the Lakers and did not return.
Rivers has been a primary source of scoring for the Clippers and any missed time would filter throughout the rotation. Owners should take a wait-and-see approach before dropping him.
Austin Rivers needed help off the floor. He's in the locker room. Not putting much weight on right leg.
