Clippers' Redick to return vs. Mavs after long absence


Posted Apr 3, 2014 10:08 PM

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Guard J.J. Redick is set to return for the Los Angeles Clippers after missing 25 games because of a bulging disk in his lower back.

Redick hasn't played in a game since Feb. 3. He averaged 15.7 points in his first 36 games.

Coach Doc Rivers says Redick won't start against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night, and would be limited to 20-25 minutes.

Backup guard Jamal Crawford and forward Danny Granger are still injured. Crawford will miss his third straight game with a sore left Achilles tendon, while Granger has a strained left hamstring.

Rivers says he'd be surprised if either of them return before the playoffs begin in two weeks.
