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. 

Low Usage player?? This guy was one of the most hyped up guys pre-draft, gets 30+ minutes regularly, & he has spoelstra's "neon-green light". Like I said, glad he's doing well now but also glad he's not on my team

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....

Yes he is a low usage player. The high usage guys on that team are Waiters, Dragic and James John.

Ok, I'll give you that one. Still, the minutes are there and he averages about 10 shouts a game.  "Mid-usage"player? 

 

Lets not get away from the original point. Whitesides return means zero for J Rich usage/fantasy value. If he starts shooting bad when Whiteside comes back so be it.

This reasoning is flawed because Richardson's increased shot attempts does correlate with Whiteside's presence. Whiteside went out 11/30, do a quick comparison and you can see

 

Richardson with 10+ shots a game

Before 11/30- 7 out of 20 games

After 11/30- 4 out of 6 games (with one game at 9 shot attempts).

 

A key point here is the mentioning of his confidence. Richardson making more shots is a different variable than him "having the opportunity" to make those shots. If he has less shot attempts, which will be the Whiteside effect, then it WILL affect his stats. Will his stats go up if he confidence is high? Yes. But if he has less shot attempts, will it affect his stats? Also yes.

He had 11 in the first quarter....then disappeared after that...the peripherals aren't there, there are better options on the wire. If his shot isn't hitting, he doesn't help your team much, other than steals. 

That's the problem, he was (for all his faults) projected to be a 1-1-1 (and on the plus side of all of those), so his value wasn't tied to scoring 16 - 20 pts every night. If he's only that later guy, then there's plenty of other options
