Nuggets Sign Austin Rivers For Rest Of The Season


The Denver Nuggets have extended the deal for guard Austin Rivers through the rest of the season.

Rivers has averaged 6.2 points, two assists and 1.2 steals since signing a 10-day contract on April 20. Rivers has helped fill the void left by Jamal Murray, who is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee on April 12.

Denver also is without guards Monte Morris and Will Barton due to hamstring injuries. Both are expected to return this season.
