The Mavs wrap up the regular season on Sunday against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Redick will not play in the team’s final three games.
If Dallas can avoid the play-in tournament, they will have five days off before the playoffs begin. Their loss on May 11 dropped them to sixth in the Western Conference. They are just one game ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers. Only the top six in each conference advance directly to the playoffs in 2021. Fans can get all the specifics on the play-in here.
Redick missed 18 games and over a month of action with a heel injury in March and early April. He re-injured that same heel on Tuesday night. Stay tuned for updates as they become available, but it appears the veteran sharpshooter is looking at an extended spell on the sidelines. Jalen Brunson, Trey Burke, and Tim Hardaway Jr. will have to step up for the Mavs without Redick.
Every game is important. The Dallas Mavericks, Lakers, and Trail Blazers all have three games remaining in the regular season and are separated by just one game in the standings. One of those teams will be in the play-in tournament. Stay tuned to see how it all shakes out.
