He did undergo an MRI over the weekend that confirmed the strain, and he will be re-evaluated in two weeks before potentially returning. The 35-year-old has continued to be a consistent offensive threat, as he has been everywhere he has gone in his career. On the season he is shooting 45.2 percent from three-point range, good for second in the entire league. Redick has also posted 14.9 points per game this year, which had him in the starting lineup until Zion debuted, which sent the veteran back to the bench.
The Pelicans currently sit with a record of 26-34, tied with the Sacramento Kings and Portland Trail Blazers, who all sit 2.5 games behind the Memphis Grizzlies for the eighth playoff spot in the West. The Blazers and Grizzlies both got wins on Monday night with New Orleans off. The Pelicans will return to action without Redick on Tuesday night at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Detroit Pistons will also be without their lone recognizable star left healthy or still on the team for the next two weeks, as guard Derrick Rose will miss at least that amount of time with an ankle sprain. An MRI on Monday confirmed that it is a Grade 2 sprain, and he will undergo treatment immediately, the team announced on Tuesday. The All-Star snub to many suffered the injury during the team's loss to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday afternoon. The former NBA MVP has averaged 18.1 points and 5.6 assists per game in his first season with Detroit. He was expected to be on the move at the Trade Deadline, but the veteran showed want to stay in Detroit, despite the team's struggles.
