JJ Redick left the New Orleans Pelicans game against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday after playing just four minutes. He did not return. Redick has been diagnosed with a hamstring strain and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The Pelicans will miss the veteran shooter as they make a push to sneak into the playoffs. Redick is averaging 14.9 points per game and is shooting 45.2 percent on three-pointers this season.

Josh Hart and E’Twaun Moore will likely see an increase in their playing time while Redick is sidelined.
