Austin Rivers: (Hand) Likely Out For Remainder Of Season

Rotowire.com
Update: Rivers (hand) will have surgery next week and is likely done for the season, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Recommendation: Rivers fractured his hand in Wednesday’s loss to the Lakers, but his absence should not carry significant fantasy impact, as Rivers is having a poor rookie season. The rookie is averaging 6.2 points per game on 37.2 percent shooting. With Eric Gordon in and out of the lineup on a nightly basis, the Hornets’ backcourt is in rough shape. The team signed Terrel Harris to a 10-day contract Friday morning, but he is not likely to see major minutes. Aside from Gordon, Roger Mason Jr. is the only other active shooting guard on the roster.
