• According to Ira Winderman, guard Josh Richardson says he has been told he will be out 6-8 weeks.

    Charania reports that he suffered the injury during workouts on Friday and needless to say this is a bummer for us here at Hoop Ball, as we’re huge fans of his game and we rode the Richardson wave into many fantasy playoffs last year.  Owners that were reading Hoop Ball had him as an add a full month before other sites did, and maybe this will cause him to go under the radar again this season. 

    Yes, there is a logjam in the backcourt and this injury won’t help matters, but he was projected as an easy late-round guy for us and this might make him available as a last round pick in all of your drafts.  There is quite a bit of time for him to get back on his feet if this is a 6-8 week injury or thereabouts, and he was more of a stash candidate, anyway.  Unless there is a major timetable we’re not exactly racing to upgrade Dion Waiters or Tyler Johnson’s projections, either.  

    Update: Plugged-in Ira Winderman echoes our thoughts about the timeline.  This is probably only going to help owners secure Richardson late in drafts.
