Richardson struggled shooting the ball last season, hitting just 39.4 percent of his overall looks and 33.0 percent of his attempts from deep for 10.2 PPG. His inefficiency is somewhat unusual considering he was pegged as a scorer out of college and shot 45.2 percent from the field and 46.1 percent from three during his rookie campaign for 6.6 PPG. He also played just 53 games last season while dealing with foot and ankle issues, which could have contributed to his poor shooting to some extent. Other than his scoring, Richardson averaged a subpar statline of 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals across 30.5 minutes per game. He was also given that substantial workload largely of a result of the Heat’s backcourt being decimated by injury throughout the year, especially the loss of Justice Winslow for all but 18 contests. So, while it’s possible that Richardson will make some strides in his game, it appears that he could very well suffer a decreased workload. Considering he had little Fantasy value while garnering starter’s minutes, Richardson’s Fantasy value has the potential to be quite low during the 2017-18 campaign.

  2. Josh Richardson 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Richardson was the 40th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft after spending four years playing at the University of Tennessee. He grew into an effective scorer by his senior year, where he averaged 16.0 points per game while shooting 46 percent from the field and 36 percent from behind the arc. Richardson wasn't as impressive in the summer league, as he shot just 39 percent from the field in 10 games, but he still showed flashes of potential and managed to average 11.8 points per game. As he enters his rookie season, the 21-year-old will be fighting for court time with fellow shooting guards Gerald Green and Tyler Johnson, with All-Star Dwyane Wade firmly ahead of them all. Should Richardson earn court time this season, he likely won't be able to do much besides score the ball, and it's possible he could see some time in the D-League this year given the depth the team currently has at the position. Nevertheless, given Richardson's size for his position and scoring ability, he could potentially work his way into the rotation in the near future.
