Austin Rivers chips in 11 points in win over Timberwolves

by Alex Burns | Rockets Correspondent | Wed, Mar 11th 1:44am EDT

Austin Rivers supplied 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-4 3PT) and one assist across 18 minutes off the bench during the Rockets' 117-111 victory over the Timberwolves on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact:

Rivers was solid on a per-minute basis on Tuesday, but saw less playing time due to Eric Gordon's return to the lineup. The Duke product serves as a key rotational piece for the Rockets second-unit but provides little fantasy value and is better left on the waiver wire. Rivers would, however carry some value if any member of the starting lineup were to miss an extended period of time. Until then, he can expect to stay around his average of 23 minutes per game and look to provide a spark off the bench for the Rockets.
