J.J. Redick injury: Clippers guard out 6-8 weeks with fractured right wrist

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers will be without J.J. Redick for at least six weeks after he fractured his wrist.

Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks with a fractured wrist bone (pisiform) as well as a tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament, the team officially announced Sunday. The injury occurred during the second quarter of the Clippers' 104-98 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday.

He will be re-evaluated by a hand specialist on Dec. 2 to determine further treatment.

Redick is tied with Jamaal Crawford as the Clippers' third-leading scorer, averaging a career-high 15.8 points per game. He has started in all 17 of the Clippers games this season. Los Angeles owns a 12-5 record, the fourth-best winning percentage in the Western Conference.

Losing Redick for at least a month is a huge blow to the Clippers, who are currently on a four-game winning streak and have lost a single game at home. Their defensive efficiency is 15th in the league, but their offense is averaging 110.3 points per 100 possessions according to Basketball-Reference, good for fourth-overall in the NBA.
