It looks like the Sixers will be without guard Jason Richardson for at least the next two-to-three weeks according to Shams Charania from The Athletic.

An MRI revealed a slight strain of Richardson's left hamstring and he will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks. The Sixers have been playing without center Joel Embiid, who has been sidelined since January 6 due to a finger injury, leaving the team without two starters.

He is averaging 15.0 points and 3.3 rebounds in 38 games this season, his first with the Sixers, making this a huge loss for the Sixers. Richardson is one of the few players on the roster who can create off the dribble and while not a great 3-point shooter, he has the ability to knock-down three's. .

With Richardson out, look for more minutes from Shake Milton, James Ennis and Furkan Forkmaz and more opportunity for Matisse Thybulle.
