Forward Malik Allen was activated in Redick's place before Monday night's game but did not play.

Redick had his best year in the NBA last season and was a key contributor in the playoffs. But the former Duke standout is shooting only 12 percent from 3-point range through nine games, averaging 4.4 points a game.

Keeping Redick was the most expensive move Orlando made this summer. The Magic matched a $19 million, three-year offer sheet made by Chicago in the offseason to keep the restricted free agent.

Redick has averaged 18 minutes per game playing behind Vince Carter this season.
