Jason Richardson left Sunday’s game between the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks after just 107 seconds after spraining his ankle when he accidentally stepped on a cameraman situated courtside at Madison Square Garden. Richardson, who is in his first season with the Sixers, was driving to the hoop and missed a layup that was defended by Carmelo Anthony. His momentum took him out of bounds where he accidentally backed into the cameraman, rolling his ankle. Richardson limped off the court and was reportedly wearing a walking boot after the game, per CSN Philly. He was so upset he tweeted the following message after the game: Whelp I guess it’s more important to get a picture shot than player safety smh. I will work my hardest to get back on the court ASAP. — Jason Richardson (@jrich23) November 4, 2012 Richardson is out for Monday’s Sixers-Knicks game in Philly. “It ballooned up a lot,” Richardson said about the swelling in his ankle. “It’s just some soreness and I’m going to keep it under control.” Hopefully he won’t miss too much time. Filming the game for TV is pretty important, but it’s not more important than being a hazard to the safety of players. I’ve said for a while that cameramen and photographers need to be off the court more than they are, but between courtside seats and that, it’s obvious that’s not a priority to the league.
