Michael Redd Planning a February Return

According to Redd (who hasn’t played since last January), he’ll be back in the Bucks‘ lineup sometime in February. FanHouse reports: “The goal for me is February,’ the one-time star guard said. Redd, who has been rehabbing in his hometown of Columbus, Ohio, was in Milwaukee for the first time since last March. He chatted with teammates at a Bucks practice and had the Thanksgiving event he has held for eight years for disadvantaged families. That was the primary reason for Milwaukee visit. The next time Redd returns, he wants to be taking part in a Bucks practice. He said he was cleared Nov. 8 to do some basketball activities. ‘I feel great,” said Redd, who believes he can be 100 percent when he comes back. ‘I’m just now getting acclimated to playing basketball again. … I’m doing some basketball stuff on the court now, shooting and dribbling, a little light running. Just getting acclimated to playing basketball again.’ Redd, 31, suffered torn anterior and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee on Jan. 24, 2009, against Sacramento and missed the rest of the season. He returned last season only to hurt the same ligaments on Jan. 10, 2010, in a road game at the Los Angeles Lakers, and needed another surgery.”

    Good thing he’s not coming back until February. January seems to be out to get him.

    Yeah the Bucks can wash their hands of this guy real soon, they can move on… He’s gotten fat enough off that inflated contract….

    Dude needs to hang it up.

    I always liked his game and hope he comes back strong. Hopefully his knee is right this time, it’s hard to say when it’s time to hang em up when the dr’s clear you. So, I understand his need/desire to at least give it another try.
