Description: Pelicans guard Austin Rivers was ejected from Monday's game against Oklahoma City for getting into an altercation with Nick Collison.
Insight: Collison was also ejected. The Pelicans were already extremely thin at the guard position with Jrue Holiday, Brian Roberts and Eric Gordon all out. They'll need Tyreke Evans (knee), who was a late addition to the starting lineup, to handle the point and will give more minutes to Anthony Morrow.

Description: Pelicans guard Austin Rivers will return from an upper respiratory infection Friday against the Jazz, according to nola.com.
Insight: Rivers is having his best month of the season, averaging 10.0 ppg in 12 contests, but he missed a chance to start Wednesday with Brian Roberts and Eric Gordon out. Roberts probably won't play Friday and Gordon is questionable.

Insight: Rivers is having his best month of the season, averaging 10.0 ppg in 12 contests. This should only be a one-game absence.

Description: The Hornets announced that guard Austin Rivers had successful surgery to repair his hand fracture. He'll be out 4-6 weeks. SOURCE: Jimmy Smith, NOLA.com
Insight: Rivers had just one double-digit scoring effort since Dec. 28 so he wasn't a fantasy factor.
3/6/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers has a right hand injury and won't return to Wednesday's game, according to John Reid of NOLA.com.
Insight: Rivers has just one double-digit scoring effort since Dec. 28 so he isn't a fantasy factor.
1/25/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers injured his wrist after falling to the court Friday against Houston.
Insight: It looks like he's done for the night. Rivers has been useless this month, averaging just 2.4 ppg in 12 January appearances. Even in deep leagues, he's not a fantasy option.
12/30/2012 12:42:00 PM
Description: Hornets rookie guard Austin Rivers showed why he isn't yet a rosterable fantasy option when he scored zero points in 13 minutes Saturday.
Insight: Rivers scored 27 points on Dec. 14 but has only produced 52 total points the last eight games (6.5 ppg). Now that Eric Gordon is back in the lineup, Rivers' playing time will be even more inconsistent.
12/15/2012 10:24:00 AM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers' career-high 27 points on 9-of-14 shooting (5-6 3PT) were not enough as the Hornets dropped Friday's game to Minnesota.
Insight: Rivers is averaging 14 points on 49.1 percent shooting his last five games after making just 28.3 percent of his field goal attempts while averaging 6.1 ppg in his first 16. He has some work to do to make fantasy owners forget about that poor start but at least he's on the right path.
Cold12/3/2012 10:46:00 PM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers went 0-of-5 from the field Monday against the Bucks.
Insight: Rivers has only made 3-of-18 from the field his last three games. He's not a fantasy factor at this time.
11/12/2012 2:04:00 PM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers rolled his right ankle in practice Monday but he's still expected to play Tuesday. SOURCE: New Orleans Times-Picayune
Insight: That could change if he wakes up in pain Tuesday. Rivers has already dealt with a bunch of injuries this season and is only averaging 5.5 points, 3.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 29 minutes per game while shooting 21.9 percent from the field. He's not really worth the trouble right now.
11/9/2012 7:03:00 PM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers will start Friday night's game against Charlotte. He missed the team's game on Wednesday because of a sprained finger.
Insight: Rivers is shooting just 20 percent this season. He'll try to improve that percentage tonight against the 1-2 Bobcats.
11/7/2012 5:48:00 PM
Description: Hornets guard Austin Rivers is a no-go for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia. Rivers has a sprained finger.
Insight: The rookie out of Duke has averaged a pedestrian six ppg in three appearances this season. For now, consider him day-to-day.
10/27/2012 6:43:00 PM
Description: New Orleans guard Austin Rivers is doing well after tweaking his ankle in Friday night's preseason game against the Heat. He should be ready for Wednesday's regular season opener against the Spurs.
Insight: If Eric Gordon remains sidelined with a sore knee, Rivers could open the season as the team's starting shooting guard.
10/26/2012 10:23:00 PM
Description: Hornets guard Austin Rivers re-injured his right ankle Friday night against the Heat.
Insight: Rivers had six points on 2-of-6 shooting before the ankle injury forced him out of the game. The rookie from Duke will have a few days to rest up before New Orleans opens its regular season Wednesday versus the Spurs.
10/24/2012 4:49:00 PM
Description: New Orleans rookie guard Austin Rivers will miss Wednesday's preseason game against the Rockets to rest his sprained ankle. Rivers suffered the injury Monday night during a game against Dallas.
Insight: Rivers will open the season as a backup to starting point guard Greivis Vasquez. He averaged 15.5 ppg on 43.3 percent shooting last season at Duke.
6/28/2012 8:35:00 PM
Description: Austin Rivers was selected by the Hornets as the 10th overall pick in Thursday night's NBA Draft.
Insight: Rivers had an up and down season as a freshman at Duke last year (15.4 ppg) but when he's on his game, Rivers can be an elite scorer with great range and incredible quickness. He'll join a New Orleans backcourt that already includes Greivis Vasquez, Jarret Jack and Eric Gordon.
