Michael Redd Out for Season

Lance LeQueAnalyst IFebruary 6, 2009

The Milwaukee Bucks' leading scorer, Michael Redd, will miss the rest of the year with torn ligaments in his left knee.

"I'm deeply disappointed but everything in life happens for a reason and this is God's plan for me," Redd said in a statement issued by the team.

"I have faith in my teammates and coaches to continue to work together to make our fans proud. I will be supporting them wholeheartedly from the sidelines and working equally hard to return to the court in the best condition possible for next season."



My Take

I'm so disappointed with this news, that I find myself unable to go into any detail.

To sum things up, this is obviously a huge blow to the Bucks. Not only is Redd undoubtedly the team leader, but he was the leading scorer, and he was just starting to heat up.

I wish Michael a quick, full recovery, and I can't wait to see him back next season.
