Jason Richardson Injury Diagnosed as "Lung Inflammation," According to Report

Orlando Magic guard Jason Richardson sat out his second straight game Monday with a chest injury, now diagnosed as "lung inflammation," according to Paul Kennedy of Sun Sports and FOX Sports Florida. Against the Milwaukee Bucks, J.J. Redick started in Richardson's place.

Richardson was a late scratch for the Magic's loss to the Miami Heat on Sunday after experiencing chest pain during pre-game warm-ups. The Heat's medical staff examined Richardson and told him not to play.

During the Magic telecast of Monday's game, Kennedy reported Richardson might visit a specialist in New York when the Magic are in the area to play the New Jersey Nets on Wednesday.

Richardson is averaging 12.2 points per game in his first full season with the Magic, shooting a career-best 41.5 percent on three-pointers. In seven starts this season, Redick has averaged 14.6 points in 32.2 minutes, shooting 45.2 percent from the floor and 58.1 percent from three-point range.
