Redick hurt

J.J. Redick is hurt. He walked off the court wit hthe trainer. It appears to be a wrist or hand injury.

Note: The following is from the AP

Redick, the ACC's iron man who averages more than 37 minutes of playing time, left for about 4 minutes in the first half after he banged knees with Trent Strickland while trying to draw a charge. He went to the locker room before returning with a black knee brace, but limped his way to 20 points on 6-of-17 from the floor.

"Normally, when that type of thing happens, it's painful at first, you kind of hobble off and then it goes away," Redick said. "But I just got hit in a really weird spot, right on the inside of my knee. It didn't bother me at all once I got back out on the floor."

-------------------------------------------------------

The trainer must have just been talking to Redick while holding his arm. The AP reports that Redick "limped his way to 20 points" but that is an exaggeration. Redick's limp was noticable from 3 rows back on press row.
