JJ Redick Continues To Recover From Heel Injury, No Timetable For Joining Mavs  

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Mar 27, 2021 5:18 am

The Dallas Mavericks have no timetable on when JJ Redick will join the team as he recovers from a nonsurgical procedure on his right heel.


Redick has been out since the All-Star break.


"We want to make sure that heel is 100%. That's more of a situation where we're going to have a chance to maybe have him work out and then slowly, when it's comfortable, to integrate and come to Dallas," said president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson.


Rick Carlisle added that Redick's heel was "progressing."


The Mavs acquired Redick minutes before Thursday's trade deadline.


"He told me Luka [Doncic is] one of his favorite players, and Luka had a chance to exchange texts with him, as did Dirk [Nowitzki], and I think he's pretty excited to come to Dallas," added Nelson.

Great move for the Mavs. Luka, like lebron, is elite at seeing the floor. You can diversify plays, but you take the most of what makes him special when he as the ball in his hands and spread the court so he can create a bucket or make the pass. If carlisle trust redick's team defense, this will help them spread it out and let luka have all the space to make some magic. underrated move.
