After tearing his MCL in September, Josh Richardson is finally set to make his regular season debut against Toronto

In September, Josh Richardson suffered a partially torn MCL in knee. Since then Josh has been in a rigorous rehabilitation program and now at the tail end of his six to eight week timetable he is finally set to make his return.

Richardson will most likely face a minutes restriction tonight, but his playing time should ramp up from there as his conditioning improves. It’s likely that we see Richardson in the starting lineup soon.

Josh was an essential part of Miami’s playoff run last season and key component of their young core. His return is very exciting.

The Heat play tonight in Toronto at 7:30PM.
