Zach Randolph to Miss 8 Weeks

Hope Marreese Speights is ready to go, because Grizzlies big man Zach Randolph is about to miss some serious time. The Commercial Appeal has the scoop: “Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph will miss up to eight weeks after magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed that he suffered a slight tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, sources with knowledge of the situation told The Commercial Appeal. The injury will not require surgery and doctors will re-evaluate Randolph in two weeks. Randolph was believed to only have a bruised MCL. He did not travel with the team for its road game tonight against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He remained in Memphis and is wearing a knee brace. Randolph suffered the injury after teammate O.J. Mayo inadvertently fell into his legs during the Grizzlies’ 40-point loss Sunday at Chicago. Randolph left the game with a minute left in the first quarter and he didn’t return.”

    Gonna be pretty funny when the Grizzlies barely miss a beat and everyone who had Randolph in their preseason top 10 for MVP candidates will look like a complete dope.

    Double damn, I thought the initial reports had him at about 2 weeks or so. Quick reaction getting Speights to mitigate some of the damage. I dunno noah Conley bounced back fast and this team has definitely got some testicular fortitude (playing minus Gay last year and they’ve played elite teams tough the past 2 years) when it comes to overcoming obstacles…

    A shame for this guy… but it makes my playoff predictions all the more accurate. You can’t stop greatness.
