HoopsHype Luke Ridnour rumors

March 15, 2014 Updates

Former Wolves guard Luke Ridnour played 14 minutes off the bench in his first game against his old mates since the Bobcats acquired him and his expiring contract from the woeful Bucks at the trade deadline. “I was glad to get out of Milwaukee,” said Ridnour, who played three seasons for the Wolves before he was traded to the Bucks last July. “It’s a good situation here. I’ve only played five, six games here so I’m trying to get used to it. It’s a good city and I’ve been in the playoffs before and just to be back in the hunt where every game is big, it’s just a lot different feeling. . ... This has been fun.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

Sources close to the situation in Milwaukee have informed Basketball Insiders that despite the widespread reports circulating, actual trade talks have been slow and the general feeling in the locker room among players is that there won’t be a rash of moves at the deadline. The source maintains the situation remains fluid, but the team is likely to hold on to assets such as Ersan Ilyasova, Gary Neal and Luke Ridnour if they cannot secure the desired package in return.

Bucks guard Luke Ridnour injured his right wrist late in the first quarter and had to leave the game to be examined on Sunday night at the AT&T Center. Ridnour apparently caught his hand in a jersey as teammate Ekpe Udoh screened for him and San Antonio guard Patty Mills defended. After Ridnour was examined in the locker room, the injury was termed a sprained right wrist and the Bucks said he would not return to the game. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Ridnour is making $4.3 million in the last year of a four-year deal he signed with Minnesota. "I'm not worried about that," he said. "I've been in the league long enough and that's not really an important factor to me. "I know good things will come. I've got faith. I trust in the Lord and he's got a good plan. He always turns everything for the good. Whatever that is, however it happens, it will work out." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Ridnour has not played this season due to a herniated disc in his back, an injury that cropped up just before the Bucks played the season opener in New York on Oct. 30. His return would be welcome news for the Bucks, who have relied on rookie Nate Wolters for huge minutes at the point guard spot. That's because 21-year-old point guard Brandon Knight is sidelined again due to a right hamstring injury he suffered in the season opener. "I feel pretty good," Ridnour said. "I haven't got to practice or play live or go full tilt. So that's his (trainer Scott Barthlama's) biggest hold-up with me. "Other than that I feel pretty darn good." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Luke Ridnour traveled to Orlando to rejoin the team but is not ready to return to the lineup, Drew said. The veteran point guard has not played yet this season after experiencing back spasms late in the preseason. "Yeah, there was a Luke Ridnour sighting today," Drew said. "He just came in to join the team and get some work in. He won't play. "He's at the point now to where he can kind of move around. But it's good to see him. It was good to see him walking straight. That's a good sign." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
