Zach Randolph suffered a knee injury during the first quarter of the Memphis Grizzlies game against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night. Randolph suffered the knee injury when teammate O.J. Mayo fell into him following a blocked shot.
Zach Randolph has been great for the Memphis Grizzlies the past several seasons, but the veteran power forward suffered what looked to be a knee injury during their game against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night. The team announced that it was only a knee contusion, but an MRI is likely in store.
Randolph was attempting to rebound a blocked shot from teammate O.J. Mayo, but the team's guard had too much momentum and fell into the right knee of Rondo. The veteran power forward was tended to on the baseline by the Grizzlies training staff before eventually being taken to the locker room.
Randolph is averaging 19 points and nine rebounds through the first the first three games of the Grizzlies season and had scored two points and grabbed three rebounds in the first quarter of Sunday night's contest. If he misses any considerable time, the Grizzlies will be very light at power forward as they lost Darrell Arthur to injury during the preseason.
