Date:

Jason Richardson will play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

He was rested against the Raptors on Monday, but the 76ers are obviously going to be cautious with him moving forward given his injury history. Owners in deeper leagues who could use some help in scoring and 3-pointers should give him a look.
Mar 4 - 1:48 PM

Jason Richardson (rest) will not play on Monday against the Raptors.

It is not a surprise at all on the second night of a back-to-back set. Richardson has actually played very well lately, scoring double figures in each of his last three. He's worth using in some leagues, but sitting out back-to-backs is a little too annoying for standard leagues. The last time J-Rich sat out, Hollis Thompson scored 22, and should get over 30 minutes tonight. Expect to see more of Jerami Grant on the wing, too.
Mar 2 - 5:32 PM

Jason Richardson scored 12 points in 26 minutes during an 89-81 win over the Wizards on Friday with two rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers.

He is putting up some nice numbers right now with a 16-point, four-trey game on Wednesday. Richardson is going to have to rest on occasion, but he should have a chance to put up top-100 value the nights he plays because of his output from beyond the arc.
Feb 27 - 11:09 PM

Jason Richardson played well against the Bucks on Wednesday with 16 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He rested on Monday and picked up season highs in points, minutes and treys. Richardson is playing OK so far this year, averaging 7.0 points, 6.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 treys in his previous two games. He's still going to be a risky player to own because he'll rest in several games this season.
Feb 25 - 10:41 PM

Jason Richardson (knee) will return to the Sixers' starting lineup on Wednesday.

J-Rich sat out Monday's game as a precaution in the second half of a back-to-back set, something which may be a trend through the final weeks of the season. Richardson will have his hands full chasing Kevin Martin around the court tonight, and he's only worth a glance from deep-league owners seeking 3-pointers.
Feb 25 - 8:09 PM

Jason Richardson (knee) will not play against the Heat on Monday.

He played in the last two games and actually looked good in those two, averaging 7.0 points, 6.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 treys in 21.0 minutes per game. He will likely have to rest throughout the season, so it's tough to add him in even deep leagues. With J-Rich out and Jerami Grant up in the air, there should be more minutes for Hollis Thompson and JaKarr Sampson on the wing.
Feb 23 - 3:29 PM

Jason Richardson maintained his starting role vs. Orlando on Sunday, posting seven points, five rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes of action.

J-Rich was made 1-of-5 shots from downtown, going 3-of-9 overall, and it looks like he'll remain a Sixers' starter indefinitely. Philly plays a back-to-back game on Monday and there are no guarantees that J-Rich will play, let alone log 20+ minutes, so even deep-league owners should view him warily.
Feb 22 - 9:11 PM

Jason Richardson will make his second consecutive start against the Magic on Sunday.

He scored seven points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Pacers on Friday, so J-Rich proved that he still has some gas left in the tank. He's obviously a huge injury risk at this point in his career, but owners in deeper leagues can certainly do worse while he is active.

Jason Richardson played in his first game in 25 months in a loss to the Pacers on Friday, scoring seven points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

It's hard to ask for a line much better than this one. Richardson gave up a handful of easy baskets on defense, but his energy was there. He is going to pick up most of K.J. McDaniels' minutes and he's been a fantasy stud in previous seasons, but the injury risk makes him a tough grab for owners in shallow formats. That said, if you are just looking for a reason to cut someone, there are worse guys to own than J-Rich.
Feb 20 - 11:04 PM

Jason Richardson (foot, knee) will start against the Pacers on Friday.

It's his first game since Jan. 18, 2013, but he is only going to play in four-minute stints, which means he's looking at around 14-18 minutes tonight. Richardson will likely have a minutes cap on him for a while, so he'll have a tough time posting big value for now. Just keep an eye on him.
Feb 20 - 5:33 PM

Jason Richardson (foot, knee) is available to play against the Pacers on Friday.

He has been working with the first unit in practice and could wind up starting. Richardson has led the NBA in 3-pointers before and he might get some run this season, especially with K.J. McDnaiels in Houston. However, he will likely have a minutes cap for a while, so most owners can leave him on the wire.
Feb 20 - 5:06 PM

Jason Richardson (foot) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers.

Richardson has not played in an NBA game since January of 2013, so a substantial amount of rust should be expected, and his minutes will likely be limited. He is however playing for the Sixers, and with K.J. McDaniels being shipped out of town, there will be opportunity for J-Rich to produce. However, he's unlikely to enter the standard league equation, and owners in deeper leagues should use a wait-and-see approach with the veteran.
Feb 20 - 11:48 AM

Jason Richardson (foot) was seen playing 5-on-5 with the first unit during Wednesday's practice, and he is still hoping to play in Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Even if he does start for the 76ers, J-Rich hasn't seen any action in a couple of years due to ongoing injury issues so his playing time would likely be monitored for the foreseeable future. It looks like he has a good chance to play against the Pacers on Friday, but owners in deeper leagues should probably use a wait-and-see approach here.
Feb 18 - 1:25 PM

Jason Richardson (knee) has not been able to play five-on-five with the team yet.

"That's the final hurdle for him," coach Brett Brown said. Richardson is hoping to return after the break on Feb. 20, so that should be interesting for the 76ers, especially with how well Hollis Thompson has played. He's only a stash in very deep leagues.
