Randle recorded 17 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 12 points and four assists in 35 minutes Monday against the Raptors.
Randle was nearly lost in the shuffle fantasy wise as he contributed the least impressive of the Pelicans' three double-doubles. Whether he's starting or coming off the bench, Randle has been a steady contributor, scoring in double digits in every game so far this year. The fifth year pro putting up career-best numbers, averaging 18.0 points, 7.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 0.8 blocks per game on the year.
Randle scored 22 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 38 minutes during Saturday's 119-99 win over the Suns.
While all eyes were on the marquee matchup at center between Anthony Davis and 2018 first overall pick Deandre Ayton, Randle went about his business and out-rebounded both of them to grab his third double-double of the season, as well as his fifth game with 20-plus points. Nikola Mirotic (ankle) isn't expected to miss much action, and Randle will get bumped back to the bench when he returns, but the 23-year-old's had plenty of success so far as the Pelicans' sixth man.
Randle will start at power forward Saturday against the Suns, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
Randle will start with Nikola Mirotic (ankle) out. When seeing at least 24 minutes this season, Randle is averaging 19.9 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists.
Randle collected 26 points (10-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 28 minutes during Monday's 122-116 loss to the Thunder.
Randle was perfect Monday, connecting on everything from both the field and the free-throw line. As a bonus, the often perimeter shy Randle was 2-of-2 from beyond the arc. Despite a couple of poor efforts, Randle appears to have settled in well to his sixth-man role, providing nice depth off the bench. Despite the strong performances of a number of players, the wins are simply not coming for the Pelicans right now. They will look to get things back on track Wednesday when they host the Chicago Bulls.
Randle (foot) will play Saturday against the Spurs.
Randle has been dealing with plantar fasciitis but has yet to miss a game because of it. With Anthony Davis (elbow) playing, Randle is expected to come off the bench Saturday.
