Austin Rivers might have some explaining to do.
Rivers, the son of former Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers and now a guard for his father’s Los Angeles Clippers, is being investigated for an incident in which he threw a seat cushion into the crowd and hit a fan, USA TODAY’s Sam Amick reported Thursday, citing a person with knowledge of the situation.
The incident, which occurred during the fourth quarter of the Clippers’ game Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena, was caught on video, as can be seen below. The woman who was hit “was clearly experiencing discomfort in her eyes for quite some time after the incident,” according to Amick.
Rivers, a bit player on a Clippers team with championship aspirations, reportedly is likely to be disciplined for the incident.
