Josh Richardson played 41 minutes tonight in a start, and dropped 26 points on 10-of-19 shooting (adding two triples) with four rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks on Monday in a 104-110 loss to the Hawks.
Richardson has been tough to own at times this year, but has been scorching hot over the past few weeks, ranking just outside the top-20 over his past seven games. This is the potential that owners drafted him for, so it is rewarding to see it come to fruition after months of weathering the storm. His short-term opportunity is great while Hassan Whiteside, Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow remain injured, but even when they are back, Richardson is a must-own player in standard leagues given his stat set potential.
