Michael Redd to have knee surgery

The Milwaukee Bucks’ playoff chances took a serious hit Saturday when Michael Redd went down with a knee injury.

Michael Redd has battled through some serious injuries during his pro basketball career but he has never had an injury that required surgery.

That’s why the Milwaukee Bucks guard is going through a difficult time after tearing the medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments in his left knee Saturday night against Sacramento.

Redd will undergo surgery in early February, although no date has been established yet.

The Bucks still have enough talent to finish in the 7th or 8th spot in the East, but they have to play with more consistency. Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villanueva and Andrew Bogut are going to have to pick up the scoring slack.
