Josh Richardson scores four points in limited preseason action

Josh Richardson scored four points on 1-of-5 shooting in 14 minutes of action on Friday night. Richardson also had two rebounds and two assists in the game.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson, who is a career 12 PPG player, came over from the Miami Heat this offseason and should get ample opportunities for playing time behind Ben Simmons this year. Richardson will have his fantasy moments this season and may even be worth a roster spot in deeper leagues. But in most cases, let’s take a wait-and-see approach first.

Josh RIchardson play a very active 26 minutes versus Magic

Josh Richardson scored 13 points on 3-of-8 from the floor and 6-of-7 from the line in 26 minutes on Sunday. Active in all phases, he added four rebounds, five assists and five steals.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson should be a solid fantasy choice considering he can contribute in nearly every statistical category. Likely not going to put up huge point totals on a regular basis, he is still one to watch.

Josh Richardson to sit out last game of the year

Josh Richardson will sit out the last game of the season against the Nets on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Not too much of a surprise here, especially since the Heat are now eliminated from the playoffs. Though some small injuries throughout the year, Richardson had a career year while playing in 73 games. He had career high's in points (16.6), assists (4.1), and rebounds (3.6) (ESPN Stats). He has a bright future and big role to play for the Miami Heat, who should be expecting a roster changes, with some unproductively large contracts in Whiteside, Dragic, and Anderson, to name a few.

Josh Richardson suffers injury in loss to Celtics

Josh Richardson recorded seven points, two assists, one rebound, and two steals, in 16 minutes on Wednesday, before having to leave the game with a left-hip sprain.

Fantasy Impact

This one hurts not only the Heat's playoff chances, but also loyal fantasy owners. After coming back from sitting out three games due to heel issues, Richardson is out at least two more games, potentially the rest of the regular season. The Heat reported he will be reevaluated on Monday, but look for Dwyane Wade, Justise Winslow, and Dion Waters to pick up the slack.

Josh Richardson (heel) can't go on Thursday

Josh Richardson (heel) will not be able to suit up for the Heat's matchup with the Mavs on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

This must be a real injury because if not Richardson would definitely be out there with the Heat right in the mix for a playoff spot. In his absence Goran Dragic will try to find his groove and Dwyane Wade and Dion Waiters will see added minutes.
