Richardson was assigned to the G-League on Wednesday.
Richardson has played in just one game since coming over to the Raptors at the trade deadline, logging a total of five minutes. He's firmly out of the regular rotation, so look for Richardson to continue to get plenty of reps in the G-League to help his overall development. In eight G-League games this season, Richardson is averaging 10.0 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.4 steals across 25.9 minutes.
Acquired from the Kings on Thursday in exchange for forward Bruno Caboclo, Richardson made his Raptors debut in Sunday's 123-103 win over the Hornets, producing two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound across five minutes. It marked Richardson's first appearance in nearly a week, as he had been sidelined due to a minor left ankle sprain prior to being treated. Though he's now seemingly healthy, Richardson will be hard pressed to find playing time for a playoff-bound Raptors squad, making it likely that the 22-year-old will spend much of the second half with the 905.
Richardson has, for the most part, been a deep bench option for the Kings in his first two years with the team, and he will likely remain in that role in Toronto. Additionally, given that the Raptors already have a strong backcourt rotation, Richardson could end up spending time their G-League affiliate, Raptors 905. But, before he is able to do anything, Richardson will have to recover from an ankle injury that has held him out for the last five contests.
Richardson (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bulls, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Richardson is set to miss a fifth straight game as he continues to nurse a left ankle sprain. The Kings have yet to provide any sort of timetable for the 22-year-old, so he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-by-game basis, with his next chance to return coming Friday against the Trail Blazers.
Richardson (ankle) will remain sidelined for Saturday's matchup against the Mavericks, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Richardson's absence will mark his fourth consecutive contest missed due to a sprained left ankle. He is without a timetable to return, so consider him day-to-day going forward.
