ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Miami Heat guard Josh Richardson could miss up to two weeks after sustaining a groin injury last night against the Celtics.
Sources: MRI on Miami guard Josh Richardson’s groin reveals no damage, but he could miss two weeks — which is an obvious blow to Heat’s chances of securing a playoff spot in final days of season.

This is the second major injury that has affected the stretch run for the Heat, after Justise Winlow missed 9 games with a thigh injury.
Now with Richardson out, and season deciders against Minnesota, Toronto, Philly, and Brooklyn still to play, you’re left to wonder if the Heat can make up the half game difference between themselves and the 3 teams in front of them for the final playoff places in the Eastern Conference.
