Redick likely to miss Clippers matchup with Nuggets (Dec 26, 2016)

LOS ANGELES — Injuries are piling up on the Los Angeles Clippers.

Starting shooting guard J.J. Redick is the latest casualty, leaving Sunday’s 111-102 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers with a sore left hamstring after scoring 22 points in 26 minutes. Although the Clippers haven’t announced whether Redick will play in Monday night’s contest against the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center, it’s a safe bet he will sit out.

“I would describe it as mild, day-to-day thing,” Redick said after losing to the Lakers. “It could be a day, could be seven. I don’t know.”

The Clippers already have been without Blake Griffin (right knee surgery) and Chris Paul (strained left hamstring). Paul was scheduled to start against the Lakers, but he felt discomfort before the game and had a change of heart.

Paul, who missed the last two games after getting hurt in a win over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, appeared ready to play after a good session at Saturday’s practice. However, now he probably won’t play against the Nuggets, either.

“Chris said that after talking to the doctors before the game, it was decided that he would miss the next two games,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “We’re going thru a tough stretch right now and need to play better regardless of injuries.”
