Philadelphia 76ers guard Josh Richardson has been diagnosed with a left hamstring strain and is expected to be re-evaluated in two-to-three weeks, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Richardson suffered the injury while lunging toward the ball in the first quarter of Wednesday's game against the Toronto Raptors. He exited the contest and did not return.

The 26-year-old has started all 38 of his appearances this season, averaging 15 points, 3.4 assists, and a steal per game.

Philadelphia was already without starting center Joel Embiid, who's missed the last eight contests due to a finger injury.

In 240 minutes with all five starters - Richardson, Embiid, Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, and Al Horford - on the court together this season, the 76ers have posted a sparking 97.1 defensive rating while outscoring opponents by 8.3 points per 100 possessions.

After falling to Toronto on Wednesday, Philadelphia sits sixth in the Eastern Conference at 29-17.
