The 24-year-old has appeared in two of Boston’s five regular-season games this year against Orlando and Chicago, averaging three points and one assist in five minutes.
Pritchard was included in every NBA Finals game earlier this year when the Celtics fell at the final hurdle against Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors.
