Clippers shooting guard J.J. Redick was informed Monday that he won’t need surgery for a broken right hand or for torn ligaments in the right side of his wrist, the team announced.
Redick saw Dr. Steve Shin, a hand specialist, Monday in Los Angeles.
Redick, who shoots with his right hand, still is expected to be out six to eight weeks while recovering from his injury.
He probably won’t join the Clippers on a seven-city, 11-day trip that starts Wednesday in Atlanta.
Forward Matt Barnes is out for at least another week; he is recovering from retina surgery in his left eye.
Barnes was still in Los Angeles on Monday, but may join the team at some point during the trip.
