They still came away with a 113-103 win over the Blazers thanks to a solid team effort. The league will decide how many more games he will have to miss, if any, and the team will have to go from there.
“It’s a team win,” Rivers added. “We weren’t going to beat them if it wasn’t a team win. They have better individuals as far as Dame and McCollum so we knew going into it, but our guys accept that. They understand that. I thought we did the simplest thing you should do in basketball, we passed to the open man. We kept doing it all game.”
Their next game is Wednesday at home against the Chicago Bulls.
