Dallas Mavericks lose shooting guard JJ Redick (heel) for at least remainder of regular season

Dallas Mavericks shooting guard JJ Redick will miss at least the remainder of the regular season because of right heel soreness that has bothered him for much of the season, coach Rick Carlisle said.

Redick aggravated the heel while defending during Tuesday's 133-104 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies, putting the 36-year-old's availability for the playoffs in question.

"He's getting his right heel evaluated," Carlisle said, "and then we'll see where we are."

Redick was recovering from a nonsurgical procedure on the heel when the Mavs acquired him along with center/power forward Nicolo Melli in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans just before the March 25 deadline.

Dallas hoped that Redick, a career 41.5% 3-point shooter who has played in 110 games, could help the Mavs by spacing the floor and providing leadership.

Redick didn't make his Mavericks debut until April 12 and has averaged 4.4 points in 13 appearances off the Dallas bench, shooting 35.8% from the floor and 39.5% from 3-point range.
