by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mike Richards (illness) took part in warmups and will play in Saturday's game against the Penguins.

Richards missed Friday's practice with an illness, but the ailment will not prevent him from taking the ice in Washington's do-or-die matchup with Pittsburgh. He will center the Washington Capitals ' fourth line.

Capitals' Mike Richards: Held out of practice Friday with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mike Richards is dealing with an illness and missed Friday's practice as a result, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

It's too early to tell if Richards will be available for Saturday's Game 5 against the Penguins, but the next morning skate should help us shed light on the situation. Either way, this isn't likely to cause a stir in fantasy circles as the veteran has yet to record a single point in the playoffs.

Capitals' Mike Richards: Pots goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Richards scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 win over Ottawa.

Richards opened the scoring early in the first period with his second goal of the season after being joining the Capitals in early January. With limited minutes and power-play time, the two-time Stanley Cup winner is of tremendous value to the Capitals for his defensive abilities, but doesn't produce enough offense to warrant fantasy relevance outside of deeper leagues.

Capitals' Mike Richards: Criminal charge from summer arrest stayed
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The drug charge against Richards was stayed in court Wednesday, the Winnipeg Sun reports.

Richards was charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance while trying to cross into Canada last June, but with the charges now stayed by the judge, the 31-year-old center is closer to being in the clear. However, charges can still technically be brought back within one year (although it's rare for that to occur), so he's not completely out of the woods in terms of criminal liability . The two-time Stanley Cup winning center has just one goal in 15 games this season, but with the legal picture clearing up, he could draw some interest if he hits unrestricted free agency this summer.

Capitals' Mike Richards: Finally scores in Caps sweater
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Richards found the back of the net Monday in a 3-2 win over the Coyotes.

This was Richards' first point as a member of the Caps in 15 games. He's a two-time Stanley Cup winner playing for the best team in the league but Richards is only averaging 12:10 of ice time this campaign, and is well past his prime when he was a Flyer and went through a stretch of 283 points in 315 games from 2007 to 2011.
