Josh Richardson returned from his one-game absence and made up for his lack of touch (1-for-8 shooting) with eight rebounds, four assists, four steals and a 3-pointer on Friday night.
Richardson has proven all year long that he’s a middle-round producer and it stood true tonight, as he still delivered a decent fantasy line despite some damaging inefficiency. He played 32 minutes so there shouldn’t be much concern about his availability going forward, though it wouldn’t hurt to keep your ear to the ground just in case. Most of Miami’s wings struggled tonight, with Tyler Johnson shooting 3-of-10 for six points with four dimes, two steals and a block while Wayne Ellington went 1-for-7 with a triple and a steal. J-Rich and Johnson should be owned across the board while Ellington is a worthy play for anyone in need of threes.
