Richard Fitzgerald (November 18, 1920 – April 13, 1968) was an American professional basketball player.
A 6'2" forward from Fordham University, Fitzgerald played parts of two seasons (1946–47; 1947–48) in the Basketball Association of America as a member of the Toronto Huskies and Providence Steamrollers. He averaged 4.5 points in 61 games. He also served as interim player-coach of the Huskies for three games in his first season, after the team's previous player-coach, Ed Sadowski, expressed dissatisfaction with his role on the team. Fitzgerald posted a 2-1 record. After the Huskies dispersed at the end of the 1946–47 season, Fitzgerald was selected by the Providence Steamrollers in the dispersal draft, but only played one game with the team.
