According to the Orange County Register (H/T Fully Clips), the Los Angeles Clippers are considering shutting down J.J. Redick for the rest of the season, if he’s not healthy enough to rejoin the team in the very near future.
The team will determine in the upcoming weeks whether Redick is healthy enough to rejoin the team. If he’s not, the club will likely shut Redick down for the rest of the season in an attempt to have him ready for training camp next year.
Redick has been suffering from a bulging disc in his back and hasn’t played in a game for the Clippers since Feb. 3. Redick reportedly has been ramping up his rehab process — which even included some shooting — but Doc Rivers has said that the team still doesn’t know when, or if, he’ll be able to return this season.
Prior to the injury, Redick had been averaging a career-high 15.7 points per game on nearly 40 percent shooting from three-point range.
