Drake will be without guard C.J. Rivers the remainder of the season. The sophomore suffered a broken hand in the Bulldogs’ 77-44 loss at UNI on Saturday and coach Ray Giacoletti says Rivers will have surgery on Thursday.
“You know it is probably eight to 10 weeks”, said Giacoletti. “He is probably not going to make it back I would assume.”
Rivers is averaging nearly four points per game and had a career high 13 points last week in a loss to Indiana State.
The Bulldogs return to action on Tuesday night with a visit to Evansville.
