Bucks guard Michael Redd will miss the remainder of the season after tearing ligaments in his left knee during a loss to the Lakers Sunday night in Los Angeles.

Redd, 30, tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his knee. He suffered a similar injury a year ago -- Jan. 24 against Sacramento -- and was sidelined for the final 35 games.

Redd, who missed 16 games with a strained left patella, is the highest-paid player in Bucks history. He signed a six-year, $91 million contract in the summer of 2005. He has a player option worth $18 million for next season.

Redd played in 18 games this season, averaging 12 points. Last year, he played in 33 games and averaged 21 points
