Description: Philadelphia shooting guard Jason Richardson (knee) is questionable for Monday's game.
Insight: J-Rich recently had his left knee drained but he played Friday against Toronto. With the Sixers scheduled to play a back-to-back on Monday and Tuesday, we don't expect Richardson to play Monday. The shooting guard is only averaging 7.7 points on 36.7 percent shooting over his last 10 games.

Description: Sixers shooting guard Jason Richardson returned from a one-game absence to post 16 points with four rebounds and two threes Saturday against the Rockets.
