Jason Richardson, who had his left knee drained with fluid on Thursday, will play tonight against the Toronto Raptors.

Richardson was a game-time decision and the Sixers just announced he will be in the lineup.

It will be the usual starting lineup for the Sixers with Richardson and Jrue Holiday in the backcourt, Lavoy Allen at center and Even Turner and Thaddeus Young at forwards.
