Los Angeles Clippers star J.J. Redick is set to miss up to eight weeks of action after fracturing a small bone in his right hand and tearing his right ulnar collateral ligament, reports ESPN

The injury took place in the Clippers' 104-98 win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday and consequently missed the 105-100 defeat to the Indiana Packers yesterday. 

And he now looks set to be out of action for an extended period and the Clippers will be have to be prepared to play on without the 29-year-old for up to two months. 

With the guard set for time on the sidelines, Clippers coach Doc Rivers has insisted the team will have to find a way of coping without their star. 

Rivers told reporters: "It takes out something that's been huge for us offensively. J.J.'s movement is often an often in itself. He's one of those guys when he goes out it changes a lot of what we do.

"We're going to have to do it on the run we don't have a lot of time to prepare. ... We just have to find another way."

The LA Clippers will now be hoping to get back to winning ways in their next fixture as they take on the Atalanta Hawks at the Philips Arena.
