Clippers guard J.J. Redick will not play Wednesday against the Miami Heat due to a sore left hip. Redick has played through several nagging injuries over the last two weeks, including his hip, right shoulder, left knee and lower back. He missed most the first half in Toronto on Feb. 25 with back spasms, but returned to the game to score 16 points in the second half, including making two key shots down the stretch. After that game he said he was “frustrated” with the injuries because of how much preventative maintenance he puts in throughout the season and offseason. It was a sentiment he reiterated Wednesday. “I’m working through some stuff,” Redick said. “My main thing right now is just trying to get healthy, but there’s not a lot of turnaround time in the NBA. So, if you have a small thing, kinetic changes take over and one small thing can begat another nagging thing. It’s frustrating right now, but I’ll get through it.” The Heat game will be the 22nd time Redick has been forced out of the lineup due to injury this season. He sat out 21 games from Dec. 1 to Jan. 8 while recovering from a fractured right hand and partially torn ligament in his wrist. The Clippers went 13-8 without him.
