Redick fractured a small bone (pisiform) in his right hand and suffered a tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the second quarter of the Clippers’ 104-98 win over Sacramento on Friday, the Clippers said.

He will see a hand specialist on Monday to determine a further course of treatment

Redick averaged 15.8 points while starting the Clippers’ first 17 games.
