  • Heat's Josh Richardson: Headed to Miami

    The Heat signed Richardson to a two-year contract for the veteran minimum with a player option for 2024-25 on Friday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Richardson averaged 10.1 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals in 23.6 minutes across 65 games for the Spurs and Pelicans in 2022-23. The 29-year-old guard spent the first four years of his career in Miami and posted a career-high 16.6 points per game with the team in 2018-19. Richardson will likely receive a share of Max Strus' minutes, who is expected to leave in free agency.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Empty night Saturday

    Richardson closed Saturday's 122-114 win over the Clippers with three points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

    Richardson was unable to impact the game Saturday, continuing what has been a somewhat disappointing few weeks. After initially being inserted into the starting lineup following his trade to New Orleans, Richardson has since settled into a 20-minute role on most nights, affording him very little time in which to compile meaningful stats. Barely inside the top 200 over the past weeks, Richardson is fine to ignore outside of very deep formats.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Back-to-back games in double digits

    Richardson supplied 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 22 minutes during Monday's 124-90 win over the Trail Blazers.

    Richardson scored at least 10 points for a second consecutive contest and for the third time over his past four appearances. The veteran wing continues to play 20-plus minutes per game, but his overall production has been modest, making him a difficult option to trust in fantasy on a daily basis.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Limited impact against Lakers

    Richardson recorded five points (2-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and one rebound across 17 minutes during Tuesday's 123-108 loss to the Lakers.

    Richardson scored 19 points during Sunday's win over the Trail Blazers but was much less effective Tuesday while playing under 20 minutes for the first time since Feb. 15. The 29-year-old has come off the bench in his last four appearances and has averaged 9.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in 23.8 minutes per game during that time.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Well-rounded line off bench

    Richardson finished Sunday's 127-110 win over the Trail Blazers with 19 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four steals, two rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 28 minutes.

    Since returning to the Pelicans last week after a two-game absence due to a personal matter, Richardson has lost his spot in the starting five to Trey Murphy. While he doesn't appear on track to regain that role -- especially after Murphy went off for a career-high 41 points Sunday -- Richardson could continue to routinely clear 25 minutes off the bench for as long as Brandon Ingram (groin) remains sidelined. If he can continue to receive the level of playing time he earned Sunday, Richardson could prove to be a useful streaming option for three-pointers and defensive stats.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Good to go Wednesday

    Richardson (personal) isn't listed on the Pelicans' injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

    Richardson missed back-to-back games while attending to a personal matter, but it appears he'll be back in the mix Wednesday. He started four straight contests before his absences and averaged 10.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 steals in 27.5 minutes during that stretch.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Ruled out Monday

    Richardson (personal) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Sacramento, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Richardson continues to tend to a personal matter and will be unavailable for a second consecutive matchup. Trey Murphy, Dyson Daniels and Kira Lewis are candidates to see increased run once again Monday.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Ruled out Friday

    Richardson has been ruled out for Friday's game against Golden State due to personal reasons.

    Richardson recently dealt with a quad issue that didn't force him to miss any games, but he'll be sidelined for Friday's matchup while tending to a personal matter. He's started in his last four appearances, but Trey Murphy, Kira Lewis and Dyson Daniels will likely be in line for increased playing time against the Warriors.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Active and starting

    Richardson (quad) is in the first unit for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Richardson was set to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt with a bruised left quad, but he appears to be a full-go. In his last three appearances, Richardson has averaged 11.7 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 steals over 29.9 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Questionable with quad contusion

    Richardson has been diagnosed with a right quad contusion and is questionable Wednesday against the Blazers, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    The Pelicans are already very thin on the wings, so this obviously isn't ideal. If Richardson is unable to play, Trey Murphy could reemerge with a sizable bump in fantasy value. Naji Marshall also stands to benefit, as he's someone who can play multiple positions.

  • Pelicans' Josh Richardson: Solidifies role Thursday

    Richardson racked up 11 points (4-8 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 29 minutes during Thursday's 115-110 loss to Toronto.

    Richardson ran with the opening five Thursday, supplanting Trey Murphy who played just 23 minutes off the bench. While it is unclear whether this will stick for the foreseeable future, Richardson should certainly be on the radar across all formats at this point. Having provided solid two-way production in the past, he makes for an interesting acquisition. With clear top-90 upside, managers could do worse than grabbing him to see what happens.
