Austin Rivers will not return to tonight’s Clippers game against the Los Angeles Lakers due to a right Achilles strain suffered in the third quarter, the team announced via twitter.

It is unclear at this time what the recovery timetable would be for this strain, or whether or not this is a preliminary diagnosis that could change following an MRI.
