Bucks’ Redd out for remainder of season
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) – Milwaukee Bucks swingman Michael Redd will
miss the team’s remaining six games after re-aggravating his left knee in
Saturday’s loss to the New York Knicks.
Redd has played in 53 games this season and averaged a career-high 26.7 points
per game, which is the highest scoring average for a Bucks player since Kareem
Abdul-Jabbar averaged 30 ppg during the 1974-75 campaign.
“After consulting with our team physicians, the best course of action for
Michael going forward is to rest and rehabilitate his knee,” Bucks general
manager Larry Harris said. “We expect him to make a full recovery.”
The seven-year veteran has averaged 20.1 ppg and 4.2 rebounds per contest.
