Michael Redd Injury Update

1/02/09

Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced today that guard Michael Redd (6-6, 215) suffered a strained left patella tendon in Saturday's home opening win against Detroit. Redd, 30, played 23 minutes in the win and left the game late in the third period with left knee soreness and did not return.

Redd underwent an MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) exam on Sunday which revealed the injury. Redd will be re-evaluated in two weeks by Bucks orthopedic physician Dr. Michael Gordon, M.D., and his status will be updated at that time.

In two games this season, Redd has averaged 13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.5 steals (T-2nd in the NBA) in 31.0 minutes per game.
