Agreed. I think this can be easy to forget. We can't expect consistensty at this stage.

I just have a hard time blaming Mullens for DC gambling on Defense and letting his man get to the rim continuously, once he stop gambling the bench got better on D. FACT.

DC still sucks on defense and so does our overall bench D but with Mullens we were a level or two below suck. Every time he was on the court the opposing players had easy layups. He makes Amare Stoudemire look competent on defense. He couldn't play defense without fouling or doing something really stupid. Also sucks on offense. Literally nothing redeemable as a player.

In last three-four seasons there was never a Clippers player I actually disliked until Mullens came....

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

here's the full story

this would be great

^That Is great! That means he should be back around the midway point of the season.

I guess what I don't get from one or two people here is why they don't like Redick. Not all of his critics here, but just one or two. Is it a Duke thing? Is it something else?

Because arguments over who should start, Crawford or Redick are fair. Agree to disagree and all that.

But the guy comes in and gives us 16 points a game and his best all around season (up until the injury)...and a couple of guys act like he's garbage or something. No appreciation for what he's brought to the team.

The difference between me and those guys, is I'm happy to have both JJ and Jamal. Especially the way they were both playing together. Those one or two guys aren't happy at all to have JJ Redick. It's too bad.

I think the only reason some people don't like JJ is cos of EBled. If it is because of something else I just don't get it............................whats not to like.

So 8 more games before the target date of Jan 15. You think JJ might try to go for earlier and play against his old team, Orlando, on Jan 6th?

He'll need to get back in playing and shooting shape. I think it'll be at least the 15th at the earliest.

It doesn't really matter who starts they are like ying and yang different but equally important

At this point without JJ its basically CP,Blake,and jamal but the 4th is needed because that 4th guy gets great shots because of the passing of the other three. With JJ that 4th guy is always either him or Jamal .

Really? I know I read somewhere the target is January 15th so that should be fun to see. Hate that it's his shooting arm...gunna be some real rust to shake off.

Still, at least we'll have more ammo on the wing for our 7 game January road trip.

Some more news. As we know, the cast is off. However he has no range of motion yet due to the atrophy. And he hasn't done more than shoot "from 5 feet". Still, I'm hopefully he'll be good by Jan 15th, still.

Bullock could play this weekend.

Not sure how long it takes before he'll get that range back. Anybody know?

hopefully he doesn't try to come back early. the problem with basketball players is that their sense of competition is high even to the point of detriment. despite not being healthy enough a basketball player will always get back on the court if given the opportunity.

On a side note, DJ poked a little fun at JJ for his team beating Duke in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on twitter:

So, I read a report that Mark Jackson said his GS team might be out for revenge against Orlando (last night) "if you brought JJ Redick back"...I went back to look at what he was talking about and sure enough Redick faced GS 3 times last year (once with the Bucks) and killed them every single time. Not so much by the number of points but timely daggers. And in all 3 games Klay Thompson was terrible.

Reddick giving GS a hard time. Sounds good to me. Hopefully he can hit a dagger or two when we play them again. I hope his rehab is going well.

Well, just keep expectations real. He's been out of game shape and not utilizing his skill, so expect some rust.

He definitely will. Its going to take time especially with lack of practice and lack of muscle in that arm.

Heck, just a week ago Doc said JJ had no range of motion in that hand. Looks better already! JJ's a hard working, no-quit type of guy. He's also an emotional guy on the court. Can't wait to have that back soon.

LA Clippers just twittered that "JJ Redick got some shots up after shootaround. His return from wrist/hand injury is getting closer."

They also posted a picture of him shooting

Boy, I can't wait til JJ gets back. They are saying he'll be back maybe for the Dallas Mavericks game on the 15th or to start the 7-game grammy road trip which begins on the 17th in New York against the Knicks.

It's okay J.J. you can come back early even if your hand isn't 100% yet, Jamal will be a good teammate and he'll just shoot your 3's for you. Trust me, he doesn't mind at all.
