Richardson was supposed to link up with record IPL champions Mumbai Indians for the season beginning March 31. He was earlier ruled out of the three ODIs against India beginning March 17.
He underwent surgery after the recurrence of his hamstring injury last week.
"Injuries are a big part of cricket, that's a fact," Richardson tweeted. "Frustrating? Absolutely.
"But I'm now in a scenario where I can get back to doing what I love and work bloody hard to become an even better player than before. One step back, two steps forward. Let's do this."
The 26-year-old has played three Tests, 15 ODIs and 18 T20Is for Australia.
