Tonight’s game against the Raptors could be Austin Rivers‘ debut with the New York Knicks. SNY’s Ian Begley reported Rivers revealed he injured his groin just days before his deal with the Knicks.

Rivers said:

“I’ve never played in the preseason, tonight is my first game. I don’t know how many minutes I’ll be able to play but I’ll be ready. I got injured a week before my deal with the Knicks.

I have to say the staff made a great work to make me recover and be here tonight. It will be the first time that I will play with my teammates.”
