Richardson (wrist) played eight minutes for Raptors 905 in their Game 2 loss to the Austin Spurs in the G League championship series. He finished with two points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in the contest.
The loss spells an end to the G League season, allowing Richardson to potentially rejoin the NBA team for its postseason run. It's unclear if Richardson will actually be recalled, however, given that he recently got over a wrist injury and largely failed to distinguish himself during his time with the 905. In 18 G League games this season, Richardson averaged 8.8 points (on 32.9 percent shooting from the field), 3.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 23.6 minutes per contest.
Richardson is out for Thursday's contest against the Agua Caliente Clippers due to a wrist injury.
Richardson will be sidelined for the second to last game of the regular season -- the 905's last game coming Saturday against the Maine Red Claws. The team will have to rely on their other guards Thursday to replace Richardson's 8.8 points in 23.6 minutes per game.
Richardson added 10 points (2-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four assists, three rebounds and one steal across 30 minutes of action during Sunday's 129-119 win over Wisconsin.
Coming off a 0-for-7 shooting performance a day prior, Richardson again had a rough shooting night, scoring 10 points on 25 percent shooting. The second-year player from Syracuse's major weakness is his inefficiency to convert shot attempts, as he is only making 31.1 percent of them this season. The 22-year-old is currently averaging 9.4 points and 4.5 rebounds for Raptors 905.
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.
