J.J. Redick has been an important part of the Clippers this season, but staying healthy has been an issue for the guard out of Duke. He has missed 39 of his team’s 69 games, including the past 18 with a bulging disc in his lower back.
Coach Doc Rivers said before practice Thursday at the team’s facility in Playa Vista that he just isn’t sure when Redick will return to action.
“If J.J. comes back tomorrow, we’re good,” Rivers said. “If J.J. comes back in three weeks, we’re good. If J.J. comes back in eight weeks and we’re still alive, we’re good. So I don’t
think there is a timetable.”
Redick has averaged 15.7 points and 2.2 assists in the 30 games in which he’s played.
