Report: Austin Rivers day-to-day with Achilles strain
The Los Angeles Clippers got relatively good news on Austin Rivers Saturday.
Rivers left Friday’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers with an Achilles injury, but a Saturday MRI came back negative, and the strain is only expected to keep him out on a day-to-day basis, according to Yahoo Sports’s Shams Charania.

The Clippers can’t quite seem to catch a complete break from the injuries, but this is the best news they could have hoped for. They just got Blake Griffin back, and luckily, it sounds like Rivers won’t be a long-term absence.
