What's This?

The Los Angeles Clippers’ win against the Sacramento Kings was soured on Friday night as starting guard, J.J. Redick, suffered a wrist injury in the first half of the contest. The smooth-shooting veteran was forced to the locker room after just 17 minutes of game time.

Dan Woike of the OC Register reports that Redick did not suffer a break in his wrist:

Woike explained that more light will be shed on the issue once he receives an MRI today:

The Clippers will be hoping Redick’s injury is not serious, as he is integral to their starting lineup. Known as a phenomenal floor stretcher, J.J. has an underrated passing and off-the-dribble game, whilst also being a very solid defender.

If Redick is to miss substantial time, veteran guards Jamal Crawford and Willie Green will be expected to step up and fill the void. Rookie Reggie Bullock may also get limited minutes at the shooting guard position, though he is more naturally a small forward.
