March 1 (UPI) -- The New Orleans Pelicans will be without veteran sharpshooter J.J. Redick for at least two weeks because of a hamstring injury, the team announced Sunday.
Redick, who exited Friday night's 116-104 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, underwent an MRI over the weekend, according to the team's statement. The MRI revealed the guard suffered a left hamstring strain.
The Pelicans said Redick will be reevaluated in two weeks.
Redick, 35, has averaged 14.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and two assists per game in the 2019-20 campaign. He has shot 45.2 percent from 3-point range this season, the second-highest mark in the league.
The Pelicans will play eight games across the next two weeks as the team continues to push for a playoff spot. New Orleans trailed the Memphis Grizzlies by only 2 1/2 games for the eighth spot in the Western Conference entering Sunday's games.
