AUSTIN
RIVERS

Denver • 2021-22
Oct. 7, 2017 - Rivers will see more of an opportunity this year than he ever has and that's mildly intriguing. He's never been particularly efficient with his minutes but he's still just 25 years old and could conceivably raise his scoring average considerably in the Post-Chris Paul Era. Consider him in deep leagues and at least keep an eye on him in shallow ones. (@AustinKent)

This all bench second unit for the Nuggets is getting worked at the start of the 4th for the second straight night. Considering Austin Rivers is their best creator, we shouldn't consider it a surprise.

Preseason flagrant: Draymond Green flying knee to Austin Rivers ribs on a late transition contest, after arguing a non-call on the other end. Rivers was down for a bit, but appears fine. Looks like Draymond apologized to him at the FT line.

This isn't exactly preseason for Draymond Green. He just picked up a flagrant-1 for kneeing Austin Rivers in the midsection on a wild late closeout attempt.

Draymond closed out on an Austin Rivers 3 and (replay looks like he) kneed him in the torso as he tried to fly by. Rivers was down for a while, but it looks like he just got the wind knocked out of him. He walked to the bench on his own power

Austin Rivers was clutching his left leg/ankle after taking a spill on a drive to the basket. After being attended to, he got up and has been walking off the injury on the sideline. He's staying in the game to shoot free throws but has been stretching his left foot/leg.

Austin Rivers made a tough fall on his left ankle after getting a great defensive stop that led to what could've been an easy fastbreak. Tough play. Nuggets' training staff huddling around
