Top Nick Richards News

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Not listed on injury report

    Richards (hand) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's play-in matchup against the Hawks.

    Richards was a late scratch ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale, but it appears he'll be available for Wednesday's matchup. However, the second-year big man hasn't been a part of Charlotte's rotation, so it's unlikely he'll garner a sizable role against Atlanta.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Late scratch Sunday

    Richards is out Sunday against the Wizards due to a left hand contusion.

    Richards hasn't been a key part of the rotation, so his absence shouldn't impact much. His status for the Hornets' play-in matchup will likely be in jeopardy as well.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Gets light run in blowout

    Richards (foot) finished with two points (1-1 FG, 0-2 FT) across three minutes in Wednesday's 119-98 win over the Cavaliers.

    Cleared to play Wednesday after missing the Hornets' previous three contests with right foot soreness, Richards didn't see the court until Charlotte established a 19-point lead with 2:35 remaining in the fourth quarter. As his usage suggests, Richards wasn't a part of head coach James Borrego's rotation, and that will likely remain the case so long as both Mason Plumlee and Montrezl Harrell are available.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Shifts to bench

    Richards will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    With Mason Plumlee rejoining the lineup after missing the last nine games due a variety of injuries, Richards will shift back to a bench role. The 24-year-old is averaging 3.6 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.3 minutes per game this season and isn't fantasy relevant at this time.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Not on injury report

    Richards (illness) isn't on the injury report for Monday's game against Dallas.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Won't play Friday

    Richards has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Kings due to a non-COVID illness.

    The Hornets are already shorthanded heading into Friday's matchup since several players are in the league's health and safety protocols. While Richards' illness is of the non-COVID variety, he'll be forced to miss at least one game. If P.J. Washington (illness) is also held out, Kai Jones and Vernon Carey should see plenty of work in the frontcourt.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Plays just seven mintues in victory

    Richards finished Sunday's 130-127 victory over the Hawks with two points (1-1 FG), three rebounds and one block across seven minutes.

    Richards moved into the starting lineup against the Hawks, replacing Mason Plumlee who was out due to health protocols. Despite the promotion, Richards saw just seven minutes of playing time, burning anyone who may have taken a risk on him as a potential streaming option. It appears as though P.J. Washington is going to be the big winner here, leaving Richards as just a deeper league target.
