Redhage out six weeks, will miss finals
Perth Wildcats star veteran Shawn Redhage will miss the 2015 NBL Finals with a stress fracture in his right foot.
Redhage experienced discomfort during Sunday's win over the Townsville Crocodiles at Perth Arena.
Subsequent precautionary scans revealed a fracture of his right navicular bone.
A specialist appointment on Wednesday night confirmed that he will need to wear a medical boot for four to six weeks as part of the rehabilitation process - ruling him out of the Wildcats title-defence.
Development player Nic Cody has travelled to Cairns to take Redhage’s spot in the playing roster for Friday night’s game.
Redhage will join his teammates in Cairns this evening.
