Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Redd suffered a strained left patella tendon in Saturday’s home opening win against the Detroit Pistons and will miss at least two weeks.
Redd underwent an MRI on Sunday which revealed the injury and he’s expected to be re-evaluated in two weeks by Bucks doctors.
In two games this season, Redd has averaged 13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.5 steals in 31.0 minutes per game.
**The Bucks also announced today that the team will not exercise the third year team option on forward Joe Alexander.
Bucks general manager John Hammond said, “It was a difficult decision not to pick up Joe Alexander’s option. Joe has missed valuable on court development opportunities due to injury during his first two training camps, and this year he will miss almost the first three months of the season with his hamstring injury.”
“We believe Joe can be a good NBA player, but his latest injury had hampered our ability to further assess his progress.”
The Bucks announced on October 22 that Alexander aggravated his right hamstring injury during rehabilitation exercises and is expected to be sidelined for a period of 8 to 12 weeks.
