The Milwaukee Bucks received some devastating news Sunday.

Star shooting guard Michael Redd is out for the rest of the NBA season.

Redd suffered what Bucks officials termed as a strained left knee in the third quarter of Saturday night's game againt the Sacramento Kings at the Bradley Center.

Sunday morning, Redd underwent a MRI and learned he had tears in both the ACL and MCL.

Bucks officials weren't available for comment.

Earlier this season, Redd sat out 14 games because of a sprained right ankle.

Redd is the Bucks' leading scorer, averaging 22.2 points per game. He has been playing particularly well in recent
weeks, recording a 44-point performance against the Sacramento Kings on Jan. 16 and a had a 27-point outing against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Bucks have a 22-25 record and are currently in the eighth -- and final -- spot in the Eastern Conference playoff standings.

The Bucks' next game is Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Bradley Center. It'll be one of eight games the Bucks will play in their next 12 outings at home.

Never want to see that. However I suppose that helps us since they're in the 8th spot.

Bucks have been making very big strides with Skiles and some new players. It's unfortunate to see them face another setback.

Not to celebrate an injury, but their loss is our gain.

I highly doubt it with 5 teams between us and Milwaukee's 8th seed... Not all 5 teams are better then us, but I don't think we are better then all 5 to make the play-offs

Still it potentially knocks it down to 5 teams instead of 6. Anyway you put it it still aids us in at least a small way.

The Bucks were one of, or the one, team(s) who we were least likely to catch.

I don't have time for elegant sentence structure.

I was thinking I was going to have to renege on my prediction that the reason the Pacers wouldn't make the playoffs was because the Bucks would. I suppose once Bogut gets back (if he ever does) they might still stand a chance, but I'm a lot less hopeful than I was.

I almost forgot :wah:

yea, i would be lying if I said my initial reaction wasn't "yes, this helps our playoff hopes!"

Geez, it seems like Redd is always injured. I know how that feels, fortunately, not anymore.

The next four teams in front of us only have one more win and all have tougher schedules to finish the season. So... I don't think you can count us out just yet.

I want to be wrong. I want to believe!

I hope you're right.
