The team said Tuesday that Gadzuric injured the shoulder late in
the third quarter of the Bucks' 117-98 loss to the Miami Heat.

Gadzuric has appeared in 44 of Milwaukee's 48 games this season
as a reserve, averaging 3.8 points and 3.6 rebounds in about 13
minutes a game.

The Bucks had hoped Michael Redd, who is averaging 27.2 points
per game, would play in Tuesday night's game against the Orlando
Magic after returning to practice on Monday for the first time
since spraining his left knee on Jan. 5 against the Cleveland
Cavaliers.

But coach Terry Stotts said after Monday's practice that Redd
wouldn't be available against the Magic. The Bucks were still able to halt a four-game skid with a 116-111 win.
