(8/27/13) 76ers guard Jason Richardson is recovering from knee surgery, and there is a feeling within the organization that he may not be able to return for the 2013-14 season.
According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Richardson may not be back this season, after undergoing a procedure to repair the meniscus in February. Richardson's initial timeline had him off the court until at least February, and there have not been many updates on his recovery so far.
|Richardson out until January |
|(4/10/13) According to mlive.com, 76ers guard Jason Richardson hopes to resume playing by January following knee surgery. "I was diagnosed with having a hole in my meniscus about the size of a quarter," Richardson said. "Going to several doctors to see what was the best procedure to have, I decided to go with a fairly new procedure called Denovo surgery. It's a surgery where they take juvenile cartilage and implant it back into my knee where the cartilage damage occur. Although the most common surgery for basketball players (micro-fracture surgery) has a quicker recovery time, I felt that the Denovo surgery has a better long-term success rate post basketball. My rehab process right now ... I have to be on crutches for 12 weeks completely ... no weight bearing on my left leg (been on them for 5 weeks now), after crutches I have to be in a special brace called the loader brace which relieves stress from the area of the surgery for six months. Some time by mid-October, I will be able to start lifting light weights, and hopefully if all goes well I will be able to resume normal basketball activity by late January-early February."
Warriors end 11-game losing skid against Grizzlies
Klay Thompson scored 30 points and David Lee finished with 23 to help the Golden State Warriors defeat the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies 108-82 Saturday night.
Warriors storm back from 27 down to stun Raptors
Klay Thompson made four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to fuel an improbable comeback, Stephen Curry added a pair of shots from beyond the arc down the stretch and the Golden State Warriors rallied from 27 points down in the second half to beat the Toronto Raptors 112-103 Tuesday night.
|Knee issues ended Jason Richardson's season early in 2012-13, but he was not having a particularly impressive campaign even before going down. He finished with 10.5 points per game in 33 contests, the lowest average of his career, while also shooting a career-worst 40.2 percent from the field. Richardon's role on a rebuilding 76ers team is unclear at this point, but it is possible that the surgical procedure done on his knee could end up costing him most, if not all of the upcoming season. Given concerns about his health and the roster around him, it is best to avoid Richardson on Draft Day.
