J.J. Redick’s MRI shows only abdominal strain, still out Friday


Magic sharpshooter J.J. Redick has missed the last four games for the team, so they decided to have an MRI done and make sure his abdominal muscle strain really was only a strain.

And it is, the MRI came back negative, reports Josh Robins of Orlando Sentinel (via twitter).

Redick still will sit out Orlando’s Friday night showdown with streaking Denver, and maybe more games. The Magic are basically locked in at the four seed, and they really need Redick healthy come the playoffs, so no reason to rush him now.
