Josh Richardson probably out rest of regular season as Heat make playoff push
The Heat are on the outside looking in for the playoffs.
Josh Richardson’s injury won’t help Miami overtake the Magic, Nets or Pistons.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Sources: MRI on Miami guard Josh Richardson’s groin reveals no damage, but he could miss two weeks — which is an obvious blow to Heat’s chances of securing a playoff spot in final days of season.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) April 4, 2019
Richardson has been very good this season. This is a major loss.
A silver lining: The main reason people nationally want Miami to make the playoffs is to get Dwyane Wade on that stage again. Now, it falls more on Wade to help the Heat down the stretch. So, he’ll still be in the spotlight one more time for Miami. It’ll just be these final regular-season games (at least).
