Austin Rivers says he will play in Game 2

Austin Rivers was out for game 1 against the Golden State Warriors with an illness, he is expected to play in game 2 Tuesday, according to Fox 26’s Mark Berman.

Without Rivers in the lineup, Iman Shumpert played 21 minutes, scoring just three points and missing three of the four shots he put up.

The Rockets could definitely use his shooting, as the only went 14-47 from three in game one. He is a capable defender, something that will be needed against the the myriad of perimeter weapons Golden State has at their disposal.
