Jason Richardson won’t return to action anytime soon.
The 76ers guard suffered a season-ending left kneecap injury in January and will miss at least the first 2½ months of this season.
“We are pushing late January, early February, hopefully to see how mentally I’m doing and how physically I’m doing,” Richardson said. “But right now, we are in a slow process.”
The 13-year veteran has not been cleared to run at this time. He is riding an exercise bike, lifting weights and swimming.
