Clippers’ Austin Rivers hopes to be back in time for playoff opener

first_imgNow, it’s Austin Rivers.While Jamal Crawford is rightly credited as the team’s top reserve, Rivers has been just as valuable, averaging 12 points and shooting 44.2 percent from the field.“As much as he’s been important to us offensively,” Doc Rivers said, “we’re going to miss his defense especially, putting him on literally anybody one-to-three. We don’t have that anymore, so hopefully we get it back, shoot, by playoffs.”The most pressing question is what Austin Rivers’ injury means for the Clippers’ hopes of not losing their grasp of the fifth seed. He said as long as he is healthy by Game 1 – regardless of opponent – he’ll be content.“We’re going to win our games,” he said. “We’ll get seeded wherever we get seeded. I just want to be right for Game 1 and I believe I will be. So with that note, obviously, it is frustrating because you don’t want to have anything nagging but at least we have time to get it right.”March madness****Doc Rivers called the March schedule “one of the hardest months I’ve ever seen,” with 18 games, five sets of back-to-backs and four one-game trips.For better or worse, the Clippers survived it.Now, they get to play their final five games over 13 days, giving them ample time for rest and practice.“That’s going to be helpful for us just to practice,” the Clippers coach said. “Even though we won’t go long, we went a whole month without a practice (before Tuesday), so it will be nice to be able to get back on the floor and just work, and try to get our continuity.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Rivers said he “just felt something jerk, pull a little bit,” in his left leg after his first shot against the Wizards and after a couple more minutes asked out of the game. He is targeting a return in time for Game 1 of a best-of-7 first-round series, which is at least two weeks away.“It’s just another guy out,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “It’s been that way all year, so guys are pretty used to it.”The Clippers have been undone by injuries in the last 15 months, and this season Blake Griffin and Chris Paul have both missed 21 games with injuries that overlapped and left the Clippers without at least one of their stars for a span of two months.Austin Rivers said “people haven’t given (the Clippers) enough credit” for the way the Clippers have overcome injuries this year.“People are always looking for something wrong with our team instead of looking for what’s right,” he said. “Why don’t you look at how many injuries we’ve had and still been able to hold down the ship in the West, and still be a top-five seed in the West without Blake and Chris for a big chunk of games?”center_img PHOENIX>> Austin Rivers shuffled slowly through a corridor of Talking Stick Resort Arena. The reserve will be critical to the Clippers in the playoffs, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be able to help them before then.Rivers will likely be sidelined for the remaining five games of the regular season after suffering a strained left hamstring in Wednesday’s win over Washington.“It’s definitely a little frustrating,” Rivers said, as he watched his teammates warm up prior to tip-off against the Suns. “This is the time of year, if anytime, I want to be healthy. … At least it’s not during the playoffs.”last_img read more
