J.J. Redick misses Raptors game with illness

J.J. Redick - Gregory Shamus

The veteran two-guard missed Sunday's game due to an illness. DeQuan Jones started in his place.

The Orlando Magic played Sunday's game against the Toronto Raptors without starting shooting guard J.J. Redick, who missed the game due to illness, the team said, according to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel. Redick, who ranks second on the team in scoring with 15.8 points per game, had lead the team in scoring in each of its last two games.

Undrafted rookie DeQuan Jones started in Redick's place, joining Arron Afflalo on the wings. Jones had missed Orlando's last five games with an injury of his own.

In his seven-year career, Redick has averaged 11.4 points per game against Toronto, shooting 44.7 percent from the floor and 47.6 percent on three-pointers.

Redick had been an ironman of sorts for the Magic, only missing one game in the lockout-shortened 2011/12 season, and that was the last of the season during which then-coach Stan Van Gundy rested his key players.
