The New Orleans Pelicans will be without sharpshooter JJ Redick for at least the next week, the team announced.
Redick underwent what the team classified as a 'non-surgical procedure' in order to relieve pressure and inflammation in his right heel. The team also announced that he will be re-evaluated in a week, but will remain within the NBA's Health and Safety Protocol while he is out of action.
