Clippers JJ Redick and Pelicans Anthony Davis to miss time due to hand fractures


Injuries are apart of the game but two teams just hit a rough patch with two players out suffering a broken hand injury. First up, Clippers guard JJ Redick is out 6-8 weeks after a fracture in the small bone (pisiform) of his right hand and, a tear of his right ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in the second quarter of the Clippers 104-98 win over Sacramento on Nov. 29.

Another Western Conference team will be without their star. New Orleans Pelicans sophomore star Anthony Davis is out indefinitely after he fractured his left hand.

Davis suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the New York Knicks. He said he hit his hand on the rim while going up to try and compete an alley-oop.

The Pelicans beat the Knicks, 103-99 handing New York their ninth straight loss. I guess the power of positive thinking hasn’t kicked in for them yet.
