Josh Richardson will Undergo Testing on Injured Hamstring
The Sixers could be without Josh Richardson for a bit, as he looked to pull his hamstring in the early in the first quarter on Wednesday's night loss in Toronto. Richardson came up lame, and could barley walk under his own power, heading straight to the locker room, holding his left hamstring, and did not return.
The good news is, this isn't the same hamstring that forced him to miss time in December.
The team announced he will undergo further testing when the team returns home tomorrow.
Richardson declined comment and said he would talk about it tomorrow.
In his place second-year guard Shake Milton played 23 minutes, scoring nine points, with four rebounds, two assists and connecting on three 3-pointers.
"Shakes a great player," said Tobias Harris after the game. "He can score the basketball, make the 3-ball. If he is given more playing time, he'll get more confident."
"We thought the best opportunity for his to steal a victory on the road would be to hunt some three's", Sixers head coach Brett Brown said. "Shake was a part of that environment, he played quite well."
If Richardson is to miss any time, expect Milton to see more playing time.
The Sixers host the Los Angles Lakers on Saturday night, and will likely have to do it without Richardson.
