He fits perfectly on my punt FG, FT, points, rebounds, assist and TO team.

I hope it's not serious as he clearly already has depth perception issues.

11 points, 3 three's and 2 steals and it's now the 4th quarter....

I added him in the wake of the Steph Curry injury. Good move?

 

He is breaking out of a brutal slump, returning to top 100 last week. Whether he'd break out and put up multi cat stats is anybody's guess.

Nice game tonight. Don't really watch his games, but is he actually a good defender?

yea hes really good.. he gets a lot of deflections too. my guess is those will turn into actual steals instead of the dry spell hes been having.. specially once Whiteside comes back and hes able to gamble more

Still can't trust him or Levert. Was burned too many times by them, especially jrich. Glad he's playing well now but don't give you're hopes up. What happens when whiteside returns? 

 

If I am not correct and I may not be but I think J Rich and Whiteside play diff. positions so Whiteside's return has zero effect on J Rich. :D

It will DEFINITELY have an effect upon Whiteside's return, because:

 

1. Richardson's recent scoring picked up right when Whiteside went down.

2. In an interview that can be found online, Richardson has said "we have plenty of scorers on this team, I will step up when I am needed."

3. Whiteside playing a different position has less affect on Richardson's scoring than the usage rate. At the end of the day, it's about both players on the court at the same time and having only one basketball. 

 

As a Richardson owner, I would love to see Richardson keep up. But he will take a hit when Whiteside is back. How big is the question.

May result in lower usage but would imagine Whiteside's presence would give him better looks overall

That's what I was getting at. Every time I owned jrich, whiteside was healthy. Which is why I don't get why he plays/played bipolar when whiteside is healthy.

I just have to disagree with the usage thing. Do you guys actually watch Heat games?? Richardson is not a high usage player with or without Whiteside. Richardson usually gets his shots off passes from teammates where he is open. The only reason his shot attempts have gone up a smidge (2 shots per) during Whitesides injury is because J Rich is actually shooting better and has more confidence. With low usage guys like J Rich injuries to other guys never really matter to begin with as its all about them actually hitting shots.
