ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that an MRI on Richardson’s groin revealed no structural damage but that the guard could miss up to two weeks in what would be a huge blow to the Heat’s chances of reaching the NBA playoffs.

Miami only has four games left in the regular season and with back-to-back losses to the Celtics, they are now in ninth place in the Eastern Conference behind the Orlando Magic for the last spot.
Richardson suffered the injury 16 minutes into his first game back after missing three games and will likely miss the rest of the regular season. Should the Heat make it to the postseason, he could come back as early as the first round.
