There still is no timetable for his return, and Clippers Coach Doc Rivers was asked Tuesday night if he feared that Redick could be out for the rest of the season. "I don't know," Rivers said before the game against the Suns. "I haven't had that fear yet. I don't want that fear, maybe would be a better way of putting it. But I don't know. I just keep getting updates. "I'm sure there is some thought of that. He's been out for so long. But we're just hoping for the best." Los Angeles Times

Redick is one of the first players Clippers coach Doc Rivers targeted when he came to Los Angeles. He had unsuccessfully tried to make deals to get him when he was coaching the Boston Celtics. He knew the Clippers lacked a 3-point threat last season and there was nobody better to stretch the court than Redick. He also knew he was getting something more when he talked to former Orlando Magic coach Stan Van Gundy. "When I was talking about him with Stan Van Gundy, he said, 'You think you're getting a shooter, but you're shocked that you're going to get so much more,'" Rivers said. "He's a playmaker. He's tough and he's always in the right spots on defense and the best part about him is that he tells everybody the truth, even the coaches, and that's a good thing. ESPN.com

J.J. Redick returned to the starting lineup for the Los Angeles Clippers for the first time in six weeks Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers. "He made a lot of shots in practice, the last couple of practices," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "He may have been able to play against Boston [on Wednesday], but we went the extra practice with him. He's ready to play, but I didn't know if he was ready to start, but the game the other night and our second unit's inability to score told me let's get Jamal [Crawford] back in that group as soon as we can."

J.J. Redick, who is out with a broken right hand and torn ligaments on the right side of his wrist, now has a soft cast on his hand and not the hard cast anymore. Redick, a right-handed shooter, has not been shooting the ball yet. "He's close too, would be my guess," Rivers said. "I think it's a couple of weeks, maybe." Los Angeles Times
