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.
