Randolph (knee) is out again Wednesday in Houston, Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports. This will be the fourth consecutive missed game for Randolph. The Grizzlies are likely being cautious with their veteran, as a means to avoid a longer nagging injury. The next chance for Randolph to return to the court is Friday versus Atlanta.
Despite being ruled active for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Randolph (knee) didn't come off the bench in the Grizzlies' 110-96 victory. Because Jarell Martin (foot) and Jordan Adams (knee) were already occupying the inactive spots for Tuesday's game, Randolph and Brandan Wright (knee) were listed as active for the contest, though neither player was truly considered available to play. As a result, Randolph ceded most of minutes at power forward to the trio of Jeff Green, Matt Barnes, and JaMychal Green, who combined to produce 46 points between them. Randolph has sat out the Grizzlies' last three games, and at this point, looks unlikely to play Wednesday in Houston barring a dramatic turnaround in his condition.
Randolph is active, but will come off the bench, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Randolph is making his return from a knee injury Tuesday, but he won't be in the starting lineup as previously reported. The Grizzlies are likely just being cautious with their big man and it wouldn't be surprising to see him record minutes less than his season average of 30 per game. Matt Barnes will move into the starting lineup in his place.
Randolph (knee) is officially active for Tuesday's matchup with the Mavericks, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Randolph sat the last two games out with a lingering knee issue, but he felt good in warmups and will return to the lineup Tuesday. Look for him to slide back into the starting lineup, pushing JaMychal Green back into a bench role. Considering he's fresh off an injury, beware of a potential minutes restriction, although nothing has been reported indicating he'll be limited at this point in time.
Randolph (knee) remains questionable in advance of Tuesday's matchup with the Mavs, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports. Randolph has missed the last two games with a lingering knee issue, but it sounds as though he'll test it out during warmups before coming to a final decision. If he's held out, JaMychal Green would likely make another start at power forward alongside Marc Gasol and Jeff Green in the frontcourt.
