"He’s doing the best he can," Rivera said. "He’s working on it and getting better and better."
Rivera was encouraged by the way Artis-Payne performed late in the season and feels he's ready to contribute in the postseason if needed.
"Do we have confidence in Cameron Artis-Payne? Most certainly," Rivera said. "I think he’s proven to us that he has the kind of ability to play in this league."
"He came in this morning and wasn’t feeling very well," Rivera said. "They gave him some medicine and sent him home. Hopefully, tomorrow he’ll be fine."
