Andy Roeser news: No longer Clippers president
Still, the Clippers were obliged to talk about the NBA's announcement Tuesday that team President Andy Roeser was taking an indefinite leave of absence, effective immediately.
Rivers said he didn't find out about Roeser's departure until a team spokesman told him after they had finished practice Tuesday evening.
Rivers then told his players the news and offered advice. "I told the guys, 'Just keep playing. We got it. We'll handle everything,'" Rivers said.
And how did his players respond?
"Right now, they don't respond anymore," Rivers said. "I think they've heard so much stuff lately that they are just moving forward."
