Redick missed the first six exhibition games recovering from a partially torn left quad muscle and Bullock sat out with an injured right knee.
“[Redick] had two really good days of practice, probably did more than we thought,” Rivers said before the game. “Going into practice, they said he would only go about half and he went through the entire session. And they were both very competitive sessions.”
Rivers said if Barnes can’t practice Thursday, that they will wait until this weekend practice sessions and hope that the 6-foot-7 small forward will be available to play in the season opener against the Lakers Tuesday night.
