Randle has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Heat after suffering a sprained right ankle, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Randle limped to the locker room in the second half, and upon further evaluation, he'll remain on the bench for the rest of the contest. He logged 30 minutes and scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT) while collecting 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block prior to departing the contest. Randle will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game in Milwaukee until further notice.
Randle accumulated 20 points (7-13 FG, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Celtics.
Randle finished with more turnovers (five) than assists, but otherwise it was another stellar showing for the microwave big man. Randle has contributed a double-double in three of the last four games, and so long as he can avoid foul trouble, he figures to keep earning fairly heavy minutes, especially with Nikola Mirotic (ankle) re-injuring himself during this one.
Randle had 28 points (11-19 FG, 0-2 3PT, 6-7 FT), six rebounds and five assists in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Randle continues to roll along in the month of December, and he's now averaging 29.5 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game over his last four contests. He's played at least 34 minutes in each of those games and looks to have taken over as the starter over Nikola Mirotic for the time being.
Randle totaled 26 points (10-19 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 34 minutes during Friday's 107-103 loss to the Grizzlies.
Randle remained in the starting lineup Friday, recording his second consecutive double-double in the process. Since joining the starting lineup Randle has taken his game to another level averaging 30.0 points, 13.0 rebounds, and 2.7 assists. It remains to be seen whether the move sticks for Randle or if this was simply a matchup-based move. Nonetheless, Randle is having a great season and needs to be rostered everywhere.
Randle will start Friday against the Grizzlies, Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Even with Nikola Mirotic healthy, coach Alvin Gentry will experiment with bringing him off the bench while Randle starts next to Anthony Davis. It will be Randle's first time starting when Mirotic is available, so it's not immediately clear how their respective workloads will change.
