Los Angeles Clippers’ J.J. Redick out 3-5 weeks


Although Los Angeles Clippers’ guard J.J. Redick is back on what appears to be a team that can legitimately contend for a championship, it has been  a rough year for Redick.

He has played in just 30 of the Clippers’ 55 games because of various injuries and has missed the their last four games.

Now, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, they will be without Redick for around a month.

 

 

Redick is averaging 15.7 points, 2.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds per game this season.

    The Bledsoe/Butler for Redick/Dudley deal was Doc Rivers’ biggest trade so far for the Clippers. Donald T. Sterling almost vetoed the deal, which greatly angered Doc. DTS didn’t think Redick is a starter in the NBA. At this point, who was right and who was wrong about this deal?

    At the time of the trade, I thought Butler for Dudley was basically a wash. I now think the Clips would have been better off with Butler. Bledsoe was and is clearly better than Redick, and has a lot more future potential. The fact that Redick is constantly injured makes the trade even worse. The Clippers are literally getting nothing out of Redick and Dudley right now. Redick isn’t playing (no idea when he’s coming back) and Dudley isn’t contributing anything on offense or defense. The Clippers probably weren’t going to win the championship with their current roster fully intact. But with nothing from Redick and Dudley, they may be looking at another early playoff exit this year.

    I’m not saying the Clips shouldn’t have traded Bledsoe and Butler. I just think they could have gotten much more.
