@ramonashelburne:JJ Redick will be out for the next 3-5 weeks with an assortment of injuries, sources tell ESPN. Expected back for the playoffs

This is the same as last year. Our shooting guard was out leading up to playoffs and then no longer fit in well with the team. If he doesn't play at least 10 games before playoffs I almost feel they shouldn't even bother for chemistry reasons.

Clipper Joe I believe it was you who I argued with about Billups 2.0. I am so sorry. I see what you are saying now. We can't get healthy SGs and SFs for anything. All of them are banged up even Willie.

In hindsight this could very well be key for the Clippers. In More minutes Reggie Bullock may prove himself to be a great backup off the bench a la Jeremy Lamb.

Hopefully Reggie just shows out. He could be the future of this ball club also a la Khawi Leonard. Reggie can be that for us. I can see it. His shot is so pure. I really like him

Doc NEEDS to play the hell out of Reggie and develop him. Clippers staff once again a step slow diagnosing players and downplaying the extent of injuries. Tired of this BS. Every Time a player has a "contusion" we just need to assume it's a fracture or torn ligament. Btw Crawford will now likely be disqualified for 6th man thanks to this.

Lame. Why can't we ever stay healthy?

I also don't think the Billups 2.0 comparison is fair. JJ is actually productive when he plays. Chauncey was a washed-up malcontent who provided nothing to the team.

This will get Bullock minutes, Green is also banged up and Bullock while he hasn't proven much yet has been better than Green. I expect us to use a sub rotation similar to what we saw in the Portland game for a while, including some lineups with Collison and Paul playing together.

I thought if he wasn't able to play after the break then something was wrong. This is worst than I thought. I really wonder what Doc is going to do. Looks like we may need Jaimison earlier than we had hoped. Does this make us change our approach to the Trade Deadline.

Big man still more pressing need for the health of blake and deandre. Preferably we can get another wing too that is a slight upgrade. Maybe get a free agent big as a free agent and a defensive minded 3 in a trade?

We're lucky we got Collison this past off season then. Hopefully this 2 point guard lineup works better than the CP3-Chauncey version worked last season. DC is still young and in his prime though I can't see this going too wrong.

In Chauncey's defense, he was pretty damn good for us when he first came to LA. He put up some good numbers and made some big shots. It wasn't until he returned from his achilles injury that his play really fell off. And can we really blame him? An achilles tear is a really serious injury and he wasn't exactly young when he signed with the Clippers anyway.

Well Bledsoe is injured too, so maybe keeping him wouldn't been all that helpful anyway. Not to mention, if we still had E-Bled, he would've been looking to move to a team to be a starter this off season. But, it would have been nice to get someone better than Duds.

One hour later Arash Markazi tweeted Doc says J.J. Redick could basically be out 3-5 days or 3-5 weeks depending on when his bulging disk heals. He just doesn't know

I'm no doctor or medical expert, but I'm pretty sure a bulging disc doesn't just heal in 3-5 days. In most cases, you need back surgery for it to go away(Isn't that what happned to Dwight Howard?) Let's see what happens, but I'll stunned if he's back within a week.

3 weeks is beginning of March, 5 weeks is mid-March, right?

Dodger, it probably depends on how severe it is

This doesn't help that 2nd seed chase. What I don't like is that unlike the wrist injury, it will be more difficult for him to stay in shape. His seamless transition after the injury was because he was still in tip top shape, not sure if that's possible with a back injury as any back ailment I've ever had has been unpleasant and hard to work with.

I just recovered from a back injury in 2012.

They are trying to be optimistic. The reality is back injuries unlike leg/wrist injuries is the healing process can vary from 6 weeks to 6 months.

I went 4 months without seeing any progress.

A bulging disc is severe. In reality JJ is probably done for the season. Even if he comes back by playoff time won't be effective.

I hope I'm wrong.

But got damn clippers are freaking cursed man I swear.

Any chance this is all a smokescreen for a blockbuster trade tomorrow?

Seems pretty weird that he was only kept out of the Portland game to give him an extra week, now it's "indefinitely". Matt Barnes tweeting about this being "his last". That's about $10,000,000 we could take back in salary.

Well, I have hope until Thursday at noon.

JJ has had a herniated disc in his back since 2006 (actually had it pre-draft workouts). Didn't need surgery then and played until this season with no flare ups. Not sure if it is the same one or not but these things can often flare up and then get better with rest and cortisone shots.
