Redick, who shoots with his right hand, still is expected to be out six to eight weeks while recovering from his injury.

He probably won't join the Clippers on a seven-city, 11-day trip that starts Wednesday in Atlanta.

Forward Matt Barnes is out for at least another week; he is recovering from retina surgery in his left eye.

Barnes was still in Los Angeles on Monday, but may join the team at some point during the trip.
