Clippers May Have To Shut Down Redick For The Season


J.J. Redick has missed more than a month and counting with a bulging disc in his back.

The Orange County Register (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball):

“The team will determine in the upcoming weeks whether Redick is healthy enough to rejoin the team. If he’s not, the club will likely shut Redick down for the rest of the season in an attempt to have him ready for training camp next year.”

In Redick’s 863 minutes with the Clippers, their offensive rating has been 113.3 – a better mark than anyone on the team had produced, so there’s very clearly potential here for him to help.
