Austin Rivers returned to a bench role with Reggie Bullock (right hip soreness) back on Friday vs. the Cavaliers, hitting 1-of-6 shots for two points with two rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 17 minutes.
Rivers had been getting a ton of burn with at least 32 minutes in five of his previous six games, but his production has left a lot to be desired with 11.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.5 dimes, 0.7 steals and 2.7 triples in that span. With Alec Burks (ankle) due back any day now and Immanuel Quickley starting to make some noise, things won’t be getting any easier. Rivers looks like a drop outside of very deep leagues.
