Randolph contributed 17 points (6-17 FG, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, and one steal in 32 minutes during the Grizzlies' 92-84 win versus the 76ers on Sunday. Randolph was rusty in his return, missing 11 of his 17 field goal attempts, but he helped rally the squad for a late run to avoid losing to the win-less 76ers. After missing five games, it was encouraging to see Randolph receive 32 minutes, but he has definitely been struggling thus far this season. The Grizzlies are back in action on Tuesday versus the Pelicans.
Randolph is officially in the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Sixers, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports. Randolph has missed the last five games, but is set to return Sunday and will re-join the starting lineup. With Randolph returning to the starting lineup, Matt Barnes will move back into a bench role. Considering Randolph is coming off a five-game absence, beware of a potential minutes restriction, although nothing has been reported indicating he'll be limited. Either way, it may take him a couple of games to get his legs back under him.
Randolph (knee) will attempt to play in Sunday's matchup with the Sixers, Chris Herrington of the Memphis Commercial Appeal reports. In his pregame conference, coach Dave Joerger said "He's going to try", in regards to Randolph returning to the court. Despite the fact that Randolph is going to try and play, it's still unclear if he'll be in the starting lineup or if he could be on some sort of minutes restriction, so that's something to keep in mind. If he comes off the bench, expect Matt Barnes to continue to run with the starters in his place.
Randolph (knee) is not in the Grizzlies' starting lineup, Ronald Tillery of the Commercial Appeal reports. Randolph was initially deemed a game-time call, but it looks as though he'll be held out as he continues to battle soreness in his knee. The Grizzlies will start Matt Barnes in Randolph's place, as he misses his fifth straight contest.
Randolph (knee) has been deemed a game-time call for Friday's matchup with the Hawks, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports. The veteran has missed the last four games with a knee injury, and the Grizzlies have gone 3-1 over that span. Randolph will likely wait to test out the knee during warmups before a final decision is made. If he's held out again, the Grizzlies will likely go with Jeff Green and Matt Barnes in the frontcourt alongside Marc Gasol, as Brandan Wright remains out with a knee injury of his own.
