    Furkan Korkmaz hit two triples in 28 minutes of action on Thursday night, scoring 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting as the Bucks pulled away from the Sixers 112-101.

    Korkmaz has had some intrigue as a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues due to the absence of Josh Richardson. Shake Milton has gotten some run as well and has been an interesting option, scoring eight points to go with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes in this game. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the Sixers' role players not only when Richardson returns, but also when they incorporate newly acquired Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks into the rotation.

    While Josh Richardson (left hamstring strain) will not play on Thursday, his return "is nearing" according to the Sixers.

    Richardson will not face the Bucks but could possibly play on Friday or Sunday. Shake Milton will fill in until he is ready to go.

    Josh Richardson (left hamstring strain) has progressed to light-contact drills and is now playing 2-on-2.

    Richardson is still a ways away, making a post-ASB return a realistic expectation. Until then, keep riding Shake Milton, who has provided serviceable low-end value as a starter for the Sixers.

    Josh Richardson (left hamstring strain) will be re-evaluated in two to three weeks after getting injured in the opening minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Raptors.

    Richardson was ruled out for the game shortly after leaving, and this confirms the teams' fears that it will be a multi-week absence. Furkan Korkmaz was the primary beneficiary on Wednesday after Richardson left the game, with James Ennis and Shake Milton also getting extra minutes. Korkmaz is the guy to target of the group, though Joel Embiid's eventual return is sure to shuffle the rotation once again.

    Furkan Korkmaz was the main beneficiary of Josh Richardson leaving Wednesday's game with a hamstring inljury, chipping in 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting, adding four 3s, two rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes.

    Korkmaz has shown that he can be standard-league viable when given the chance. He's worth an add for short-term value, in anticipation of J-Rich missing a game or two with his strained hammy.

    Josh Richardson left Wednesday's game with a left hamstring injury and will not return.

    Richardson finished without recording a stat in four minutes. Matisse Thybulle has had late-round value as a defensive specialist with Joel Embiid sidelined. Thybulle should see increased value with Richardson out and Furkan Korkmaz is worth a look in standard leagues as a points and threes specialist with Richardson out.

    Josh Richardson headed to the locker room on Saturday after injuring his left hamstring.

    Richardson was chasing a steal and pulled up grabbing his left hamstring before heading to the locker room. If Richardson misses time Furkan Korkmaz would likely slide into more minutes and Matisse Thybulle would get a boost in value. Korkmaz could have standard-league value with points and threes with Richardson out. Matisse Thybulle has been a late-round fantasy value as a defensive specialist and that should continue until Joel Embiid returns.

    Josh Richardson scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, and one steal against the Nets on Monday.

    Richardson committed seven turnovers on Saturday but only one in Brooklyn. He shot 6-for-12 from the floor and 1-for-2 from the perimeter. Richardson is not a superstar but is definitely a key piece of the Sixers' rotation.

    Josh Richardson scored 18 points in Saturday's win over the Knicks, finishing with three rebounds, four assists, two steals, a block and seven turnovers.

    Contributing across the board in all countable statistics this would have been a great game for Richardson, except for the seven turnovers. He continues to be a solid contributor in defensive statistics and has seen his ball-handling duties increase, so owners should take this performance with a grain of salt.

    Josh Richardson ran into a screen on Friday and injured his left elbow.

    The collision looked bad but Richardson was able to return to the game on Friday. He has played 36 minutes per game over his past six games, so there will be plenty of minutes to go around if he misses time. Matisse Thybulle has seen extra run with Joel Embiid out and could see increased value if Richardson misses time. Furkan Korkmaz, James Ennis and Mike Scott could also be streaming options for points and threes.

    Josh Richardson continued to pick up the scoring slack with Joel Embiid out, putting up 23 points on 8-of-19 shooting with four boards, three dimes and one trey in 36 minutes as the Sixers lost to the Pacers on the road.

    Richardson's stats have been similar yet down slightly compared to last season's. This time with Joel Embiid on the shelf should see his numbers improve, though he's now gone three games without a steal, which is typically where a lot of his value has come from.

    Josh Richardson led the way for the Sixers in a win over the Celtics, finishing with 29 points and seven assists on Thursday night.

    Richardson was perfect from the line and made nine of his 16 shots. He's going to need to continue this run in the absence of Joel Embiid for the next couple weeks, so expect some more big lines on the way.

    Josh Richardson led the Sixers in scoring in their 120-113 win over the Thunder on Monday with 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting while adding two rebounds, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Richardson was bound to get it going offensively and if you've been around here you knew that patience would be key. He was too good to continue shooting at a .303 clip like he had been the past two weeks and the upside is still there defensively.

    Josh Richardson made just 2-of-10 shots from the field for seven points on Friday, but chippd in elsewhere as he added eight assists, two 3s and one steal to the box score.

    Richardson can be streaky and this was one of his off nights. The 3-and-D wing will shoot himself out of tonight's funk sooner rather than later, no need to make any drastic moves.

    Josh Richardson finished with 20 points, two rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 7-of-14 shooting in 29 minutes vs. the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Richardson could've had a much bigger line if he knocked down more than just one of his six attempts from beyond the arc. He's a top-55 guy over his last four games and hopefully he'll be able to make that his floor for the rest of the season.
