Zach McCann of the Orlando Sentinel reports:
Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick recently underwent successful surgery for a torn abdominal muscle on May 26, Magic spokesman Joel Glass confirmed to the Orlando Sentinel Monday night.
Redick missed the regular season’s final 17 games with the injury but returned to play in the Magic’s first-round playoff loss to the Hawks.
The surgery was first reported at ClickOrlando.com by David Pingalore. Glass originally confirmed the surgery was for a sports hernia injury — as Pingalore reported — but later clarified the surgery was to repair the ab muscle.
