After leaving Friday’s game on crutches, Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers had an MRI on Saturday that revealed a right Achilles tendon strain, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

With the MRI returning negative for a tear, Rivers is expected to be day-to-day, league sources said.

Rivers had 13 points in Friday’s road win against the Lakers before exiting the game with the injury. The Clippers are currently 15-19 despite several injuries, but welcomed the return of All-Star forward Blake Griffin to the lineup on Friday. Los Angeles is 2.5 games out of the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

Rivers, 25, is averaging career highs of 15.8 points, 3.6 assists and 40.5 percent 3-point shooting over 32 games this season.

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.

Jabari Parker won’t be with the Bulls next season.

Heck, he might not be with them much longer. The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen’s rotation Thursday.

There’s considerable interest in Parker, 23, who remains a versatile scorer. Finding the right match financially is the obstacle that needs to be cleared, but there’s motivation to get a deal done.
