Josh Richardson scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting with a rebound, eight dimes, a steal and two 3-pointers in Monday's 87-103 loss to the Nuggets.
Although he handed out a team-high eight assists, he committed seven sloppy turnovers tonight and definitely showed some signs of fatigue. Richardson was a victim of the back-to-back in Denver and should be much better off against the Mavs on Wednesday.

Josh Richardson set new career-highs on Sunday with 37 points and eight triples in a loss to the Warriors.
He shot 14-of-22 from the field and added five assists to the box score. Richardson is just outside top-50 value on the season and should hover around that range the rest of the way. Dwyane Wade, who has put up top-110 value over the past two weeks, had 10 points with six rebounds and nine assists in this one.

Josh Richardson got back to his roots a little bit with 21 points, two rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and three blocks against the Kings on Friday.
Richardson became a fantasy force last season thanks to his ability to post excellent defensive stats out of an offensive-geared position, but this was only his third multi-block game of the season and his first since November 5. He's fallen from 0.9 blocks and 1.5 steals per game last season to just 0.5 and 1.1, respectively, this season. And he's actually seen an increase in playing time. If you're betting on some regression than J-Rich makes for a nice buy-low player, but he's almost certainly too deep into the season to make up huge ground in the big picture.

Josh Richardson shot 7-of-18 from the floor and had 18 points, two 3s, four rebounds, three assists and two steals in Friday’s loss to the Thunder.
Richardson is going through his usual mid-season slump although the dynamics are a bit different this year with Justise Winslow now assuming more ball handling duties. Richardson has been just a top-85 play in 9-cat over the last two months while shooting 38.2 percent from the field. Hopefully he can get it turned around in time for H2H fantasy playoffs.

Josh Richardson shot 4-for-15 in Wednesday's 89-105 loss to the Bulls but had a solid fantasy outing otherwise with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and three triples.
Richardson has been down in the middle-rounds this season after looking like he'd make the leap into early-round ranks following last season's breakout, and the culprit has been his decline in defensive stats. The fact that J-Rich is producing output well below his career norms gives him the look of a buy-low option, and that task will be all the easier if Richardson's shooting and scoring numbers remain mediocre. The money's in the steals and blocks here, so hope he can keep this up. Justise Winslow was far more in line with expectations tonight, posting solid counting numbers (14-6-5 with two steals and two triples) on poor shooting (6-of-17).

Josh Richardson had an off-game during Friday's road win over the Cavs, hitting just 2-of-7 from the field for 10 points, a 3, four assists and four turnovers.
Maybe most disturbing was the fact that Richardson only took seven shots in 37 minutes. He was starting to come out of his long slump (top-70 over the last two months) so hopefully this is just a blip on the road back to top-50 value.

Josh Richardson tallied 17 points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.
Richardson had a rough go shooting the ball in Monday's contest and it continued in this one as he shot 5-for-15 from the field. Other than the field goal percentage, Richardson had a patented game for himself. He's been a top-60 player on the year despite his poor field goal percentage. He's also safe from any big rotation changes that coach Erik Spoelstra likes to implement. If he can get out of this shooting funk, he will continue to put up mid-round value with upside for more.

Josh Richardson could barely buy a bucket on Monday, hitting just 4-of-13 shots from the field to finish with 11 points, one rebound, three assists, three triples and four steals.
He was a minus-19 for the Heat and it was clear that they were getting outclassed and out-hustled by the Celtics on multiple plays. The threes and steals were a balm for the sting of his poor shooting tonight. That said, we know Richardson is capable of much better production and should be safe amid a potential rotation shake-up from coach Spoelstra.

Josh Richardson (illness) returned to action in Saturday's win over the Bulls, scoring 26 points on 10-of-15 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds and two assists over 30 minutes.
One would have liked a defensive stat in there but this definitely works and he should be locked into lineups.
January 19, 2019, 6:38 pmJosh Richardson - F - Miami Heat
Josh Richardson (illness) will play in Saturday's game according to coach Erik Spoelstra.
Richardson had a minor scare after being downgraded to questionable in the late-afternoon. He should be good-to-go and in all lineups, though, any game against the Bulls can turn into a blowout very quickly.

Josh Richardson (illness) is now being listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bulls.
The NBA is not shy to late status changes and this one could go down to the wire. If Richardson plays he should be treated as you usually would, but check back to see if he's in.

Tyler Johnson will start for Josh Richardson (illness) on Friday vs. the Pistons.
Johnson is a decent play in DFS but the Miami backcourt is still crowded with Derrick Jones Jr., Dwyane Wade and Dion Waiters all in play to get minutes at the two.

Josh Richardson (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Pistons.
It’s the first game of a back-to-back set and Richardson will not be suiting up for this one leaving more opportunity for Derrick Jones Jr., Tyler Johnson and Dion Waiters, with DJJ looking like the option with the highest upside in DFS. Wayne Ellington (illness) has been cleared to play but has been out of the rotation, playing in just two out of the Heat’s last 11 games.

Josh Richardson (illness) is being considered questionable for Friday's game versus the Pistons.
It appears something is going around the locker room as Wayne Ellington is also sick and being considered questionable for tonight's game. If either or both were to miss look for Tyler Johnson and Derrick Jones Jr. to benefit the most in their absence.
