The Memphis Grizzlies have just suffered on the biggest losses we've seen in this young NBA season. I thought the Spurs missing Manu was bad or the Lakers playing with a less than perfect injured Kobe was bad but this loss for the Grizzlies is gonna be big for a team that looked like they could be vieing for #1 in the West with the Thunder, Clippers, Lakers and Blazers. Randolph is the anchor of this team, shows up during the key moments of the game and was one of the reasons this team made their late run last year in the playoffs. He's going to be a leader that this young team is going to miss, those points and boards aren't gonna make up for themselves. Here's more from ESPN:
Memphis Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph is expected to miss six to eight weeks after tearing a ligament in his right knee. The 6-foot-9, 255-pound Randolph tore his right MCL in the first quarter of the Grizzlies' 104-64 loss Sunday at Chicago. Memphis announced the injury Wednesday, a day after an MRI revealed the injury. Randolph, 29, led the Grizzlies in scoring through the first four games of the season with an average 14.8 points, and had 7.5 rebounds per game.
