McGruder’s season could be done before it even began. His absence opens up the small forward spot in Miami, and Josh Richardson seems like the likeliest replacement. Whereas McGruder didn’t have any fantasy value either way, Richardson’s stock should keep on climbing now that he has a starting job. The extra minutes headed his way make him an excellent pick in the draft’s later rounds, as he’s one of the few guys around in that range with top-100 upside. This also bodes well for Justise Winslow and Wayne Ellington.
