Austin Rivers is day-to-day with an injured right ankle after an MRI showed no structural damage.

Rivers sprained his ankle in the second quarter of the New Orleans Hornets' game on Monday against the Mavericks.

At Tuesday's practice, Rivers showed up wearing a walking boot.

Rivers will miss the final two preseason games.

"It’s actually not that bad,’’ Rivers said after Tuesday’s practice. "This is not really swollen. But it’s not too bad just based on how I feel right now. I can be back very quickly. I’m not really worried about it.’’
