In the second quarter of tonight’s Clippers game against the Los Angeles Lakers, shooting guard Austin Rivers went to the floor in pain after taking a blow on the left elbow from Lakers center Andrew Bogut.

After a quick stint in the locker room with trainer Jasen Powell, Rivers returned to the Clippers’ bench and quickly checked back into the game. He had an early 10 points to lead the Clippers in the first quarter.
