Malachi Richardson (hamstring) may be nearing a return and is practicing with the Kings.
Richardson has been out for over a month with a partially torn hamstring but has a chance to return to game action this week. “I just want to take it day by day, just make sure I’m completely confident in my body and ready to play,” Richardson said. If he is cleared to return, fantasy owners can expect some rust as well as a questionable role due to the logjam in the Kings’ backcourt so he isn’t a viable pickup in most leagues. The rookie does have some potential but with the recently acquired Buddy Hield playing his same position, it may be tough sledding for him to make a fantasy impact next year.
