The Heat are on the outside looking in for the playoffs.

Josh Richardson‘s injury won’t help Miami overtake the Magic, Nets or Pistons.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Richardson has been very good this season. This is a major loss.

A silver lining: The main reason people nationally want Miami to make the playoffs is to get Dwyane Wade on that stage again. Now, it falls more on Wade to help the Heat down the stretch. So, he’ll still be in the spotlight one more time for Miami. It’ll just be these final regular-season games (at least).
