J.J. Redick was superb in Sunday's 113-122 loss to the Spurs, shooting 10-of-16 from the field with eight 3-pointers to score 31 points off the bench.
Redick was playing like a man possessed to keep New Orleans' season alive, but unfortunately most of the other Pelicans failed to play with the same urgency. The sharpshooter added five rebounds, three assists and a block today in what was a strong all-around performance. He took a step back in fantasy this year because of the Pelicans' backcourt depth but remains one of the league's elite shooters. We'll see how much Redick plays over the last two games now that the team has nothing to play for.

J.J. Redick will step into the starting lineup on Friday when the Pelicans face the Wizards.
This should make for a nice opportunity for Redick as the Wizards defense is porous, and the Pelicans will have a giant hole in the lineup with Zion Williamson missing this contest for rest. Redick will cash in with additional points and 3-pointers and if you get a boost in assists or steals out of this, consider yourself lucky.

J.J. Redick came off the bench in Thursday's 140-125 loss to the Kings and did his job by making 5-of-10 threes on his way to 18 points in 22 minutes.
Redick is a 3-point specialist and that didn't change on Thursday as he contributed little else on the stat sheet – one assist, one block and one turnover. Redick has made 13 treys over the four games on .465 shooting and that is where his value pretty much ends.

J.J. Redick scored 21 points in 26 minutes on Thursday night, tacking on four boards, three assists and three triples as the Pels let the game slip away late against the Jazz.
Redick was one of the lone bright spots off the bench for the Pelicans, who failed to put the Jazz away after leading by double digits in the second half. Redick is a reliable cheaper play for 3-pointers without sacrificing percentages and he'll be a critical part of the Pelicans' push for the postseason.

J.J. Redick scored 20 points on 5-of-10 shooting with four triples, a rebound and an assist on Monday against the Bucks.
A classic Redick line with a handful of triples and little to nothing else. He doesn't look rusty at all.

Josh Hart held top-120 value in 9-category leagues during his first year as a Pelican.
Hart's biggest fantasy contribution was the 6.5 rebounds per game he chipped in at the guard position. He also made about two triples per game while hitting them at a 34.2 percent clip. Hart finished with 10.2 points per game to with 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals over 27.4 minutes per contest. However, J.J. Redick's presence often cut into Hart's fantasy upside and he finished just outside top-130 value in 8-category formats.

J.J. Redick scored 14.9 points while adding 2.9 triples, 2.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 35 starts for the Pelicans and 26.4 minutes per game, ending up with 141/131 value in 8/9-cat leagues on a per-game basis.
Redick did play in 54 games but he battled multiple injuries throughout the season which forced him to see a drop in his production in New Orleans. Regardless, his percentages were still impressive, managing to shoot .450 from the field, .452 from behind the arc and .902 from the charity line. There were plenty of rumors during the trade deadline involving Redick, but the Pelicans never really entertained any of them, especially since the veteran sharpshooter continues to be one of the best in the league in being able to space out the floor.

J.J. Redick has intentionally lost 10 pounds since the quarantine began.
Redick's goal was to get back to his playing weight during his college days at Duke, and it's not a surprise that one of the most dedicated workers in the league was able to drop weight during the coronavirus pandemic. Redick's shooting will be sorely needed when the Pelicans try to chase down the Grizzlies for a playoff spot, but if he does not come out of the gates making an impact the Pelicans are likely to shift to another hot hand on their deep roster. Redick has only seen 26.4 minutes per game this season, and that is going to limit his impact to strictly 3-pointers (2.9 per game).

JJ Redick (left hamstring strain) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, per the Pelicans.
Redick went for an MRI that confirmed the strain and the team will keep him on the shelf in hopes of a full recover for the stretch run. Josh Hart and E'Twaun Moore should get the extra minutes here, with Hart the more well-rounded player and Moore slightly better if you're just chasing threes. Hart is a borderline 12-team pickup. He's been a standard-league guy on the full season but way off the map over the last handful of weeks, so hopefully he can find his form.

J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game.
Redick departed Friday's game early, lasting just five minutes before sustaining the injury. Hamstring injuries can be tricky, so we could be looking at a multi-game absence here. Josh Hart and E'Twaun Moore are the likely beneficiaries on the wing, with Hart the better play.

J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) has been ruled out for the remainder of the game Friday vs. the Cavs.
Once it was revealed Redick had suffered a hamstring strain, it was not surprising for him to miss the rest of this one. In addition, he could miss some time which is something the Pelicans and fantasy owners don't want to see with the playoffs on the line in both cases. The team has yet to indicate the severity to which Redick is injured just yet, but it should come sometime in the next 24 hours.

J.J. Redick (left hamstring strain) is doubtful to return to Friday's game.
Well there it is. After leaving with a mystery injury, Redick had apparently injured his hamstring. There should be some update to the severity of the injury after the game.

J.J. Redick has left the Pelicans' bench and headed to the locker room near the end of the first quarter of their game against the Cavs on Friday evening.
Stay tuned. He signaled to the bench due to apparent injury and left the game. He has yet to return to the Pelicans' bench.

J.J. Redick came off the bench on Thursday and scored 24 points with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
Redick was hot late in the game when the Pelicans needed some triples to catch back up and he delivered. He's settled i nicely as a 3-point streaming option, but there'll be inconsistencies with how the game flow is.

J.J. Redick put up a stellar performance on Saturday, showing up with 23 points (7-of-15 FGs), four rebounds, four dimes, three 3s, one steal and one block in a stat-sheet-stuffing extravaganza.
Redick has actually seen an uptick recently, scoring in double figures in three straight games and appears to have shaken off the cobwebs of his recent slump. Add him if he was dropped in your standard league.
