Nick Richards scores eight points in win over Rockets

Nick Richards totaled eight points (4-5 FG), grabbed one rebound, one assist, one block, and turned the ball over one time in the Hornets’ 123-99 win over the Rockets on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Richards played off the bench on Monday, logging 16 minutes and scoring eight points, one assist, and one block. He is now averaging 3.7 points and two rebounds per game. Richards will probably see increased minutes with both P.J. Washington and Miles Bridges in the NBA health and safety protocols. However, he isn’t a recommended roster addition at this time.
