    Celtics' Josh Richardson: Struggles with shot

    Josh Richardson ended with two points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 19 minutes during Monday's 104-92 victory over the Pelicans.Richardson has scored in double figures just once over his last five games. Even with Marcus Smart (COVID-19 protocols) sidelined, the veteran wing has failed to carve out a substantial role off the bench. He's currently competing with Aaron Nesmith for the top reserve spot behind Dennis Schroder, but Schroder is the likely the only one of the trio that warrants any fantasy consideration, especially when Smart eventually returns to the rotation.

Richardson, Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown also delivered a defensive effort that held Chris Paul and Devin Booker to 13-of-41 shooting. Boston will stay home to face the Orlando Magic on Sunday.
