Clippers could get J.J. Redick back sooner than expected

Dec 16, 2013, 11:49 AM EDT

The Clippers just ended a rough seven-game road trip with a 4-3 record, and have struggled overall since J.J. Redick went down with a pair of injuries back on Nov. 29.

The initial timetable for his return was 6-8 weeks, but it appears he may be on the low end of the scale in terms of time he’ll miss.

Willie Green started in Redick’s place the first seven games. But due to him being largely ineffective in shooting just 29.5 percent from beyond the arc since Dec. 1, Doc Rivers inserted Jamal Crawford into the starting lineup in Saturday’s win over the Wizards.

Redick started all 17 games he’s appeared in for the Clippers, and is averaging 15.8 points in 28.2 minutes per game, while knocking down 35.9 percent of his attempts from three-point distance.

    With the defense improving dramatically over the last 8-10 games the offense has struggled mightily without JJ. Good news indeed. Let’s hope the team is prepared to take on the Spurs tonight.

    We are too soft! I like Blake and DJ, but the Clips will continue to get abused against ALL contenders with plus size, because of how physically and mentally soft we are
