Hip injury sidelines J.J. Redick

PLAYA VISTA, Calif. -- The Los Angeles Clippers were hoping to have a fully healthy roster for the first time this season after the NBA All-Star break but they will have to wait at least a few more days.

J.J. Redick, who has missed the past four games with a sore right hip, will miss Tuesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. Redick was hoping to be able to practice on Monday and play Tuesday after taking four days off but Clippers coach Doc Rivers ruled him out before practice even started.

"J.J.'s out today and at least probably until the Memphis game [on Friday]," Rivers said. "He saw the doctor today but we'll see."

Rivers also didn't think Green, who missed last Wednesday's game against Portland with a sore right hip, would be able to play Tuesday.

Despite missing two of their guards, Rivers said the Clippers decided not to extend a second 10-day contract to Sasha Vujacic, who only played in two games and had 5 points in 10 minutes. Rivers said the Clippers would look to add another player but not right now.

"We're going to do [a 10-day contract] but we don't know if it will be for Sasha or somebody else," Rivers said. "I don't know when we're going to do one but we'll do one eventually."

Rivers said the Clippers would likely look to add a player after Thursday's trade deadline and didn't expect the Clippers to be players at the deadline.

"That's why you don't want to do a 10-day now, you don't want to have the extra contract, you may need it," Rivers said. "I don't think anything's going to happen honestly but you just never know. ... We're not out there looking for anything or to move anyone but people are calling so you do listen."
