Austin Rivers enters health and safety protocols

Austin Rivers health and safety protocols

Nuggets guard Austin Rivers has entered the NBA’s “health and safety protocols.” His placement in the protocols does not necessarily mean he has contracted COVID-19, or that he has contracted the virus and is unvaccinated. It can be intimated, however, that COVID played a part in his absence.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported the news via Twitter on Wednesday.

Along with Rivers, Na’Shon “Bones” Hyland has also entered the health and safety protocols. Hyland was a first round selection in the 2021 NBA Draft who has played in 15 games this season, starting none. He is averaging eight points, 1.7 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game.

Rivers is in his 10th season in the NBA and his first full season as a Nugget. The shooting guard has started three games, playing in 18. His averages this season are 3.9 points, 0.8 assists and 1.4 rebounds per game. He is currently slated to miss “several” games.
