    Josh Richardson (concussion) returned on Wednesday and scored eight points on 2-of-6 shooting with two blocks in 30 minutes.

    Richardson cleared the concussion protocol and returned to practice on Tuesday. He was rusty but still added two blocks.

    Josh Richardson is no longer listed on the injury report and will be available to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Richardson should see added playmaking duties with Ben Simmons (out) dealing with a back injury. Shake Milton has balled out recently while Richardson, Simmons and Joel Embiid have been out, but is sure to see a hit to his value with Richardson and possibly Embiid returning for this one. Richardson ranks in the top-150 on the year but has the upside to be a top-75 value down the stretch.

    Josh Richardson has cleared the concussion protocol and returned to practice on Tuesday.

    Richardson may return for Wednesday’s contest against the Pistons. With Ben Simmons (back) still out, Richardson will be looking at added opportunities to take on more of a facilitator role moving forward.

    Ben Simmons (lower-back nerve impingement) will be reevaluated next week.

    Simmons has been out for two weeks as the Sixers are still waiting for the inflammation around his nerve to subside. The team is "hoping" that he can return before the playoffs which does not bode well for his fantasy playoff outlook. Shake Milton will continue his breakout while the Sixers hope Josh Richardson can step up once he returns from a concussion on what has been a down-year for him so far.

    Josh Richardson (concussion) has been ruled out for the Sixers' game against the Warriors on Saturday due to a concussion.

    This will mark Richardson's third game in row on the sidelines. Richardson has been fairly productive when healthy this season but cannot seem to stay on the floor, having dealt with multiple injuries. Even so, he ranks in the top-150 on the year and over the last two weeks even though he has only appeared in five games during that time. With the Sixers being so banged up at the moment, Richardson should carry good value if he is able to beat either or both of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons back to the lineup.

    Josh Richardson (concussion) was listed as out on Thursday vs. the Kings.

    Richardson suffered the concussion on Sunday and will miss his second game in a row with the injury. Glenn Robinson III scored 25 points on Tuesday in 31 minutes off the bench and is worth a look as a streamer for points until Richardson returns. Matisse Thybulle started on Tuesday and is a streamer for steals and blocks until Richardson returns.

    Josh Richardson (concussion) will not play during Tuesday's game.

    Richardson suffered the injury on Sunday and was placed into concussion protocol. Shake Milton has been white hot recently, and this news should boost his playing time for now.

    Josh Richardson has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol.

    Richardson left Sunday's game with a nose contusion, which seemed flimsy considering he left after banging heads with Alec Burks. Shake Milton, Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle will get extra run on the wings while Richardson is sidelined.

    Josh Richardson (nose contusion) will not return to Sunday's game.

    Richardson's day will end with nine points, an assist and a 3-pointer in just 10 minutes of action. Shake Milton has been on a nice roll and both Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle should get some more run off the bench, but this is a big blow for a Sixers team already missing their two stars. Hopefully Richardson isn't out long, as he had a great opportunity to get his fantasy season back on track with Philly shorthanded.

    Josh Richardson immediately went to the locker room during the second quarter on Sunday after he knocked heads with Alec Burks.

    The Sixers are already light on ball-handling and shooting, so hopefully Richardson isn't dealing with a concussion. We'll keep you posted.

    Josh Richardson came on late in the game to finish with an acceptable line in 34 minutes, scoring 11 points, grabbing seven boards and putting up three defensive stats on Thursday.

    We still don't like the inefficiency (5-of-13) and lack of scoring and shooting for a team that's going to need more against better competition. Furkan Korkmaz matched Richardson's 11 points in just 26 minutes, but didn't add much else. We'll see which one of the ancillary pieces in the Sixers' rotation really gets it going while they're shorthanded.

    Josh Richardson struggled in 39 minutes of action on Thursday, finishing with just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting, but he did add seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and a blocked shot.

    Richardson didn't come out of the break strong and we'll see if this is just a blip in the radar as the Sixers try to make a lot of pieces fit together. Al Horford came off the bench again as expected but only played 19 minutes despite the free basketball, scoring six points to go with three rebounds and three defensive counters. Richardson and Horford have both had disappointing numbers as the Sixers shuffle these pieces around and may not bounce back to their expected value down the stretch.

    Al Horford told the media that he expects to continue coming off the bench going forward.

    Even off the bench, Horford has been playing close to 30 minutes per night of late. Nevertheless, it's an indication that Josh Richardson should maintain his place in the starting lineup for the Sixers. Horford can contribute in a variety of categories, but he has scored only 9.3 points per game over his last ten appearances.

    Josh Richardson returned to the starting lineup on Tuesday and celebrated with a big game, notching 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting with five rebounds, three 3s, one assist and two blocks in 32 minutes.

    JRich is officially back in business. His strong play and heavy minutes suggest his injury is now in the rearview. Consider his buy-low window now officially closed as well.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Furkan Korkmaz and Josh Richardson will start in place of Al Horford and Shake Milton in Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Richardson starting was only a matter of time, but the real news is that Korkmaz has supplanted Horford in the starting lineup for at least this one game. It is no secret that the Sixers have a hard time spreading the floor, and the frontcourt pairing of Horford and Joel Embiid hasn't been what the team envisioned. If this lineup works on Tuesday, it may have some lasting power in the second half of the season. Pay close attention to this development, and Korkmaz in particular, coming off back-to-back 30 point outings.
