Clippers’ Redick out at least a week

Updated: October 10, 2013

Los Angeles, CA ( – Los Angeles Clippers guard J.J. Redick is
expected to be sidelined between 7-to-10 days due to a thigh bruise, said head
coach Doc Rivers on Thursday.

Redick, acquired by the Clippers from Milwaukee over the summer as part of a
three-team trade in which Los Angeles shipped both point guard Eric Bledsoe
and veteran forward Caron Butler to the Phoenix Suns, is not believed to be in
danger of missing the team’s regular-season opener, which will take place on
Oct. 29 against the rival Lakers.

Rivers also told reporters that star forward Blake Griffin sustained a bone
bruise to his left knee during Wednesday’s scrimmage and was held out of
Thursday’s practice as a precaution.

Swingman Matt Barnes (calf) and rookie guard Reggie Bullock (knee) are also
currently day-to-day with minor injuries.
