Josh Richardson says his hamstring ‘feels good,’ but he hurt his wrist vs. Celtics

Sixers, Josh Richardson

Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard Josh Richardson says his hamstring “feels good,” which is good news since the Sixers combo guard missed six games in a row because of that ailment.

However, Richardson did admit to reporters on Tuesday that he’s dealing with a wrist injury now:

“My hamstring feels good but I hurt my wrist a little bit in Boston, so it’s been kind of tough shooting and flicking my wrist. But hopefully, I’m getting better and recover from that,” Richardson said, via Philly Voice.

“The controversial play at the end of the game on the inbound, we both like flew, my whole body landed on my wrist.”

Richardson has appeared in 20 games for the Sixers this season. He’s averaging 14.7 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists and shooting 43.5 percent from the field, 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 76.8 percent from the free-throw line.

The Sixers are 20-8 on the season. They are in second place in the Eastern Conference standings. Richardson and the Sixers host the Miami Heat for the second time this season on Wednesday. Richardson poured in 32 points in the first meeting, sending a message to the Heat that they traded the wrong guy to get four-time All-Star Jimmy Butler to Miami.
