03:13 PM ET 11.07 | The New Orleans Hornets will be without rookie Austin Rivers when they take on the Phialdelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. Rivers has a sprained left index finger and will not suit up, coach Monty Williams told reporters on Wednesday. Williams said Rivers suffered the injury in practice, while Rivers said he doesn't think it's too serious. "I really don't know the specifics on it yet, but it's nothing too serious," Rivers said. "I don't ever want to sit out a game because this is what I love to do." Rookie Darius Miller is expected to start in Rivers' place.

Rivers and Curry are the same players. Great shooters never to be on the floor.
