Josh Richardson will not play on Thursday vs. the Bucks, but "is nearing" a return to the court according to a team spokesman.

Richardson was initially given a 2-3 week timetable after an MRI revealed a slight hamstring strain, suffered in a game back on Jan. 22. Thursday will be two full weeks since the injury.

He appears to be closer to a return to the floor doing some 3-on-3 work at Tuesday's practice and going through an individual workout today.

The 26-year old shooting guard is scoring 15 points and 33-percent from 3-point range in 31.5 minutes per night.
