J.J. Redick will miss Monday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers with a shoulder injury, according to team writer John Denton. Although the Orlando Magic guard said his shoulder was feeling better as of Monday afternoon, he'll undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
Redick injured his shoulder Saturday in a 107-98 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Pump-faking Milwaukee's Larry Sanders resulted in the Bucks' center landing on Redick, who is averaging 15.3 points and 4.5 assists for the Magic. The good news for the Magic is that Redick believes the injury isn't too bad. He told the Orlando Sentinel that he didn't believe he separated the shoulder, and the improvement in the past few days is a sign that it's nothing significant.
After the game on Monday, Orlando will return home to take on the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
