Redick Out Indefinitely

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

According to Ramona Shelburne, J.J. Redick will be out indefinitely with "an assortment of injuries".

Clippers starting SG J.J. Redick will continue to miss time, as multiple reports have confirmed that he will miss around another month be out indefinitely before returning to the starting lineup.  Remember when Redick was supposed to play in the Wednesday game before the all-star break?  He seems to have fallen into the Chris Kaman time warp.  Damn you, Jasen Powell!!

According to Ramona Shelburne and Brad Turner, Redick is dealing with injuries to his back, hip, and shoulder.  Turner reports that there's a bulging disc in his back, while Shelburne adds that the Clippers are simply "being conservative and shutting him down for a bit so that he'll be ready for playoffs."  Basically, it seems like the guy is beat up with a bunch of minor injuries and they want to get him at full strength for playoffs.

Redick is averaging about 16 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists a game while shooting almost 40% from three, but he's only been on the court for 30 games this season.  Between his injuries and Chris Paul's shoulder, the Clippers have hardly had their starting backcourt on the floor together this season.

Fortunately, the Clippers have some depth on the wings.  While they'll continue to miss Redick, it's a luxury to have Jamal Crawford and Willie Green off the bench to fill in.  Crawford has been starting in Redick's absence and is averaging 19.8 points a game (on a somewhat dismal 38% from the field) in 18 games as a starter.  Green went from a starter for the Clippers last year to out of the rotation this season, and he's certainly solid enough to earn some time in the rotation.  Don't be surprised if Reggie Bullock gets some run as well, especially since Green is questionable tonight with a hip injury of his own.
