Josh Richardson (thigh contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Pelicans with Rodney McGruder drawing the start alongside Goran Dragic, Justise Winslow, Hassan Whiteside and Kelly Olynyk.
A little bit earlier coach Spo said “If he’s close to 100 percent, he’ll play. If it’s still giving him a little bit of tightness or bothering him, we’ll wait until Monday.” Richardson warmed up but it looks like his thigh is still tight so he’ll miss his third straight preseason game. Josh looks to have safe mid-round value this year with a little less upside once all Miami’s wings get healthy.
