There's been some confusion as to the severity of Richardson's shoulder injury, and his status likely won't be clarified until after shootaround Tuesday morning. Richardson was initially diagnosed with a sprained AC joint, but the team later said he may only be battling a sprain.

Richardson, according to the initial report by Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, is dealing with a sprained AC joint. However, since then, the Heat have stated that Richardson's injury is simply a bruised left shoulder, Tom D'Angelo of The Palm Beach Post reports.
