The Clippers announced Saturday that guard J.J. Redick will miss 6-8 weeks with a fracture in his right hand and a torn UCL. They'll evaluate him again on Monday to determine treatment. In the meantime, reserve Willie Green will start in Redick's place, keeping Jamal Crawford as the sixth man.

It's a big hit for the Clippers who signed Redick this summer as a free agent in a three-way sign-and-trade with Phoenix and Milwaukee. The Clippers opted to boost their offense with more perimeter shooting instead of defense. The result has been a phenomenal offensive unit that can't defend at all, coming in 16th in defensive efficiency. Without Redick, they lose a decent perimeter defender and of course a crack shooter.
