Mavericks' Josh Richardson: Dealt to Dallas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson, along with the 36th overall pick in the 2020 Draft, has been traded from the 76ers to the Mavericks in exchange for Seth Curry, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Richardson will head to Dallas, where he can fill a significant role on the wing. He could start at shooting guard or small forward next to Tim Hardaway Jr., which would presumably shift Dorian Finney-Smith to the bench. Richardson saw 30.8 minutes per game last season with the 76ers, and that's about what we can expect from him with the Mavericks. In 2019-20, he averaged 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Struggles to end season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson posted 14 points (2-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five assists and three rebounds in 36 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 series-ending loss to Boston.

The 76ers have nothing to show once again after falling at the first playoff hurdle. Richardson came into the season hoping to build on the previous year's 16.6 points per game, but his scoring average fell to 13.7 points and he put up the second-worst three-point shooting (34.1 percent) of his career. Still only 26 years of age, Richardson has time on his side, but he'll need to bounce back to his 2018-19 level to be anything more than roster filler for fantasy purposes.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Scores 18 points in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson scored 18 points (7-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding six rebounds and two assists in 38 minutes during Monday's 109-101 Game 1 loss against the Celtics.

Although Richardson had a 34-point explosion just over a week ago, Monday's game still represented his third-highest offensive output in his last 15 games, dating back to February. Richardson won't be anything more than Philly's third-best offensive option -- behind Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris -- in the playoffs, so keep expectations tempered moving forward.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Scores 10 in 24 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (rest) managed 10 points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 125-121 loss to the Raptors.

Richardson rejoined the rotation following a one-game absence for rest purposes. With Philadelphia locked into sixth in the Eastern Conference, it shouldn't be that surprising if coach Brett Brown opts to limit the playing time of Richardson and the rest of the starters during Friday's regular season finale versus Houston.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Playing Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (rest) will play Wednesday against the Raptors, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

As expected, after getting Tuesday's contest against the Suns off for rest, Richardson will return to the lineup for the 76ers' second-to-last seeding game. In the bubble, Richardson is averaging 15.4 points, 2.6 assists, 1.2 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 34.2 minutes.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Resting vs. Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson will be rested for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Jon Johnson of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Richardson has logged 30-plus minutes in all five of Philly's seeding games thus far, so he'll get the day off on the first half of a back-to-back set. Joel Embiid (ankle) will also sit, while Tobias Harris (ankle) and Al Horford (knee) are questionable as of Monday.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Scores season-high 34
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson recorded 34 points (13-20 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists and five rebounds in 38 minutes during Sunday's 124-121 loss to the Trail Blazers.

Richardson finished with a season high scoring total while matching his season high in made threes. He also handed out six dimes for the first time since Jan. 9. Richardson amassed at least six assists seven times through his first 31 appearances this season but hadn't been making much of an impact as a playmaker of late. The absence of Ben Simmons (knee) opens the door for Richardson to step up offensively going forward, and if Joel Embiid (ankle) misses any games that too will catapult Richardson higher in the team's pecking order.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Scores 19 points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson tallied 19 points (5-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two assists, a steal and a block in 34 minutes during Monday's 132-130 victory over the Spurs.

Richardson was hot early, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the first quarter. It slowed from here, however, as he dropped only nine points for the rest of the game. After attempting only four field goals in Saturday's loss to the Pacers, it was great to see Richardson being more aggressive on the offensive end. The tradeoff here is that Richardson's inefficiency comes into greater focus when he attempts more shots.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Amasses four steals versus Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson recorded 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four steals, three assists, two rebounds and two blocks in 23 minutes during Sunday's 102-97 scrimmage loss to the Thunder.

Richardson filled up the stat sheet even in limited minutes, making an impact across every category while turning in a terrific showing defensively. With Ben Simmons shifting to power forward, Richardson might have more opportunities to make plays with the ball in his hands going forward.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Scores eight in 30 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (concussion) had eight points (2-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two blocks, one rebound and one assist in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 124-106 win over the Pistons.

Richardson returned to the lineup following a three-game absence with a concussion but failed to make much of an impact beyond the blocks column. He has been held to single digits in scoring in three of his last four appearances.

March 11, 2020 06:32 PM
76ers' Josh Richardson: Back in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson will start Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Making his return from a concussion, Richardson will be back in the lineup at shooting guard. He'll be flanked in the backcourt by Shake Milton, with Tobias Harris, Al Horford and Joel Embiid up front.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Will return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (concussion) will return for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

After missing three game with a concussion, Richardson officially passed through protocol and will make his return to action. He'll likely slide back into the starting lineup alongside Shake Milton, as was the case before he sustained the concussion against the Clippers last Sunday.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (concussion) has been cleared to practice, Justin Grasso of Sports Illustrated reports.

Richardson passed through the NBA's concussion protocol and looks to be on track to return to action Wednesday night against Detroit, though the team is yet to officially clarify his status. Richardson missed the last three games after sustaining the concussion against the Clippers back on March 1.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Out again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (concussion) will remain sidelined for Saturday's matchup with the Warriors, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Richardson will miss his third consecutive game, as he has yet to get cleared from concussion protocol. As a result of his absence and Ben Simmons (back), Shake Milton and Alec Burks figure to continue seeing extended run. His next chance to play will come Wednesday against the Pistons.

March 4, 2020 08:56 PM
76ers' Josh Richardson: Remains out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (concussion) will not play Thursday against the Kings.

Richardson is still recovering from a concussion he suffered during Sunday's loss to the Clippers. As such, he'll remain sidelined for a second straight game, with his next chance to take the court arriving Friday against Golden State. Shake Milton and Alec Burks should continue to benefit from increased run with Richardson and Ben Simmons (back) both unavailable.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Won't play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson (concussion) won't play Tuesday against the Lakers, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Richardson suffered a concussion after receiving a heavy blow to his head during Sunday's loss against the Clippers, and now the guard will miss his first matchup since Feb. 6 as a result. With Ben Simmons (back) sidelined as well, Shake Milton and Alec Burks could benefit immensely from increased usage against the Lakers on Tuesday.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson has been diagnosed with a concussion, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Richardson took a shot to the nose during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, and he's since entered the league's concussion protocol. There's a chance he could be ready to play Tuesday in Los Angeles, but if not, the Sixers could be without three of their regular starters, as both Joel Embiid (shoulder) and Ben Simmons (back) are already ruled out.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Done for day with bruised nose
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson won't return to Sunday's game against the Clippers after he was diagnosed with a bruised nose following his departure early in the second quarter, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Initial tests have apparently cleared Richardson of a concussion as well as any structural damage to his nose, but he'll still be withheld from action the rest of the day due to his injury. The timing of Richardson's exit is far from ideal with the 76ers already down their top two stars in Joel Embiid (shoulder) and Ben Simmons (back), but the wing should at least have a shot at making it back for Philadelphia's next game Tuesday versus the Lakers.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Exits with apparent head injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson was removed in the second quarter of Sunday's game with an apparent head injury and is questionable to return, Jon Johnson of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Richardson recorded nine points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 10 minutes before heading to the locker room after bumping heads with teammate Alec Burks. More specifically, Richardson's mouth and nose area appeared to take the brunt of the hit, but he'll still likely be subject to concussion testing before the 76ers determine if he's available to return.

76ers' Josh Richardson: Shooting struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Richardson put up 11 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 115-106 victory over the Knicks.

Since returning from a six-game absence due to a hamstring injury, Richardsonhas been shooting just 37.1 percent from the field, and 58.3 percent from the line prior to this outing. This has caused his fantasy rank to plummet to sub-200 levels during that time span. It hasn't been pretty since his return, but Ben Simmons (back) is expected to miss an extended period of time, so maybe Richardson can utilize this opportunity to bounce back. This outing didn't look much better for Richardson, as he went 38.5 percent from the field, and missed all four of his three-point attempts, but at least he contributed three assists, two blocks and a steal.
