Richardson left Saturday’s practice with his left foot in a walking boot. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra called it a “soft-tissue injury” in his left foot and a team spokesman said the Heat guard has been dealing with the pain for a few days. “They took an X-ray last night after the game and that was fine,” Spoelstra said after Saturday’s practice. “But he is sore, so we’re going to take him to get an MRI, cross our fingers. And once we get the results from that, we’ll go from there. Hopefully it’s nothing.” With Richardson receiving lots of minutes, expect Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters who just came back from his own injury to benefit if he is to miss time.
