MIAMI – Heat president Pat Riley admitted earlier this summer that it had been a rough offseason for the team, but things got worse Friday with news that Josh Richardson hurt his knee during a workout.

Yahoo first reported the news that Richardson suffered a partially torn MCL in his right knee during voluntary workouts at the American Airlines Arena.

Other reports said Richardson was being evaluated by Heat doctors.

Richardson was a second round pick by the Heat in 2015, but made such a good impression last season that he became part of the regular rotation during the playoffs.
