Sixers guard JJ Redick’s left leg injury isn’t serious and he will likely miss only a short window of time, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) January 17, 2018
This is great news about Redick, who most respondents voted as the Sixers non-Simmons/Embiid MVP in last game’s Halftime Hangout. JJ seemed to bang knees with a Raptors player in the second half of the Sixers’ game on Monday. He left the court under his own power (and returned to watch the end of the game) but was in noticeable discomfort.
Update from the Sixers: With 4:37 remaining in the fourth quarter of last night’s game, JJ Redick sustained an injury to his left leg resulting from contact with an opponent. He underwent X-rays following the game last night, which were negative. An MRI was performed late this afternoon that revealed bone edema and a small cortical crack in the fibular head of his left leg. Redick is out and will be re-evaluated in approximately 10 days to two weeks.
