News: Thunder forward Nick Collison and Rivers were ejected following a brief scuffle in the second quarter of Monday night's game between Oklahoma City and New Orleans. Impact: Rivers appeared perturbed about the way he was held up during a prolonged screen set by Collison while on Oklahoma City's offensive end. Rivers shoved his way out of the screen and soon after started jawing with Collison as the two followed the play down court to the Pelicans' offensive end. They bumped again in the paint, igniting a brief shoving match with 7:56 remaining in the first half. (STATS, 8:14pm)

News: Rivers started for Brian Roberts on Friday against the Thunder, scoring 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), grabbing eight rebounds, and delivering five assists in 40 minutes. Impact: Not only did Rivers play well, but Roberts got hurt early in the game and did not return. Though Rivers has generally underperformed as a lottery pick in his second season, Friday could possibly be a sign that Rivers will have some value during the waning days of the season. This was a strong showing against a quality opponent, and the injury-plagued Hornets have no reason to resist giving Rivers some extended opportunities in the season's final games.(RotoWire, )
