The Dallas Mavericks have no timetable on when JJ Redick will join the team as he recovers from a nonsurgical procedure on his right heel.

Redick has been out since the All-Star break.

“We want to make sure that heel is 100%. That’s more of a situation where we’re going to have a chance to maybe have him work out and then slowly, when it’s comfortable, to integrate and come to Dallas,” said president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson.

Rick Carlisle added that Redick’s heel was “progressing.”

The Mavs acquired Redick minutes before Thursday’s trade deadline.

He told me Luka [Doncic is] one of his favorite players, and Luka had a chance to exchange texts with him, as did Dirk [Nowitzki], and I think he’s pretty excited to come to Dallas,” added Nelson.
