Bucks’ Redd expects to miss 2 weeks
CHICAGO (AP) – Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Redd expects to miss about two weeks because of a strained tendon in his left knee.
The Bucks had said Monday he would miss at least that much time and Redd, who was injured on a dunk in Saturday’s home opener against Detroit, said Tuesday he should be able to return right around then.
He said the injury is “nothing totally too severe” and there’s no connection between this and the season-ending one he suffered last Jan. 24, when he tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in the same knee.
The former All-Star accompanied the Bucks to Chicago for Tuesday’s game and was to be examined by Bulls physician Dr. Brian Cole, who operated on him last March.
With Redd out, rookie Jodie Meeks was active for the first time.
