The Boston Celtics will have Josh Richardson unavailable for the home game vs the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.

Richardson returned to action during Friday’s home loss to the Golden State Warriors (111-107). In addition, he went for a season-high 27 points vs the New York Knicks on Saturday (107-114).

The 28-year-old guard/forward had missed two games, due to the league’s Health and Safety protocols. On Sunday, Josh Richardson re-entered the protocols and will be out for the home game vs the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.

Boston (15-15) currently has seven players in the protocols. Meanwhile, Dennis Schroder (non-Covid illness), Jayson Tatum (left ankle sprain) and Romeo Langford (neck pain) are questionable vs the Sixers.
