The Philadelphia 76ers have lost another starter to injury, as Josh Richardson was diagnosed with a left hamstring strain.

He will be re-evaluated in two-to-three weeks, according to Shams Charania.

Without Richardson, players like Furkan Korkmaz, Matisse Thybulle and James Ennis will see increased roles.

“He’s a big part of this team defensively and offensively, so we’re going to miss him for however long he’s out,” said Ben Simmons.

Richardson is averaging 15.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game and ranks third on the team in minutes per game (31.5).

The 76ers are already without Joel Embiid who has been out since Jan. 6 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left hand.
