His 16 games with 10+ rebounds is the longest streak in the NBA this season and he's simply on fire since returning from injury on Jan. 9. Jan 27 - 11:05 PM

Zach Randolph dominated the Magic on Monday with 24 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block.

He has nine consecutive double-doubles now and Memphis arena staff might have to re-do the in-the-paint area with how Z-Bo has been setting up shop down there. His last five games have been particularly strong, averaging 19.6 points, 13.4 boards and 0.6 blocks on 59.4 percent from the field. Randolph is going to flirt with 20-12 lines as long as he's healthy.

Zach Randolph scored 17 points with 14 rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer against the 76ers during a 101-83 victory on Saturday.

That's eight consecutive double-doubles for Z-Bo. In that span, he's averaged 18.8 points, 13.9 boards, 2.5 boards, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks. Considering his injury history, this is a sell-high opportunity.
Jan 24 - 11:57 PM

Zach Randolph double-doubled in an 103-95 loss on Monday against the Mavericks with 18 points, 15 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 40 minutes.

He's posting some big double-doubles in his last five, averaging 20.6 points, 14.6 boards, 2.8 assists and 0.4 blocks on 57.4 percent from the field. Randolph's knee injury seems to be behind him, but it's something that has bothered him quite a bit in the past few seasons. If you can get someone to overpay on these inflated stats over his last five, it's not a bad idea to sell high.
Jan 19 - 8:19 PM

Zach Randolph stayed hot on Wednesday with 20 points and 14 rebounds on 8-of-11 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

Z-Bo is hot right now, racking up three straight double-doubles since returning from a knee injury and averaging 19.3 points and 14.0 rebounds during that stretch.
Jan 14 - 11:08 PM

Zach Randolph torched Phoenix throughout the Grizzlies' home victory on Sunday, scoring a season-high 27 points with 17 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

He shot 11-of-16 from the field and made 5-of-6 free throws, and his seven turnovers are easier to overlook in the shadow of this monster line. This was only Z-Bo's second game back after a nine-game layoff, and it's safe to say that his knee feels fine.
Jan 11 - 9:20 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) double-doubled against the Pelicans on Friday with 11 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

He was out since Dec. 19 with knee soreness and there's a good chance this issue pops back up considering his knee problems in the past. His fantasy owners might want to consider trying to trade him while he's healthy now before Memphis rests him later on this season.
Jan 10 - 1:16 AM

Zach Randolph (knee) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

Randolph said he would play earlier, and this report confirms it. There's no word on a minutes restriction, but given the fact that he's been out for the past nine games, his conditioning is likely not where it needs to be. He still remains a must-start guy every time he's in uniform, so go ahead and get him active.
Jan 9 - 7:11 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) went through shootaround and said that he will play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

While it isn't official just yet, it looks safe to assume that Randolph will indeed return to the starting lineup following a nine game absence. Go ahead and get Randolph active, and know that his return to action will severely hurt the already limited value of Jarnell Stokes, Jon Leuer, and Kosta Koufos unusable in daily leagues.

Zach Randolph (sore right knee) participated in the Grizzlies' practice on Thursday, and is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

This was Randolph's second consecutive practice, so it looks like he's getting closer to making a return. We'll have a better idea of his status after Friday's shootaround, so stay tuned for more updates. When Randolph does return, he'll severely hurt the already limited value of Janell Stokes, Jon Leuer, and Kosta Koufos.
Jan 8 - 2:28 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) will not play on Wednesday despite being a partial participant in the Grizzlies' shootaround.

Jarnell Stokes will earn another start but he's done nothing to help fantasy owners during Z-Bo's absence, with Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos picking up most of the slack. Randolph is day-to-day and could be back as soon as Friday in New Orleans, though we're unlikely to learn his status until Friday's shootaround at the earliest.
Jan 7 - 7:39 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) didn't fully participate in the team's shootaround on Wednesday, and he is still considered questionable for their game against the Hawks.

He has already missed the Grizzlies' last eight games, and his owners can only hope that his return is near. He has been battling swelling in his knee, and while an MRI came back clean, the Grizzlies are likely going to be cautious with him until he is at 100 percent. Check back for official confirmation prior to tip-off, and expect Jon Leuer and Kosta Koufos to benefit the most should Randloph sit this one out.
Jan 7 - 12:29 PM

Zach Randolph will go through parts of contact practice on Tuesday to test out his knee, but head coach David Joerger is unsure of his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Randolph has now been sidelined for the Grizzlies past eight games, but we'll have a better understanding of his availability following Tuesday's practice. Marc Gasol and Mike Conley have done the most to pick up the slack in his absence, so look for those guys to continue rolling if Randolph is again unavailable for Wednesday's game. Stay tuned.
Jan 6 - 2:11 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) did not play against the Knicks on Monday.

The Dion Waiters-J.R. Smith trade broke the internet, so we apologize for not getting this information out sooner. As an aside, the NBA world has really changed with Twitter. As for Randolph he could miss more games, but nobody is really benefiting besides Mike Conley.
Jan 5 - 11:46 PM

Zach Randolph (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he's questionable to face the Knicks on Monday.

The Grizzlies don't need Randolph to knock off the lowly Knicks, so we wouldn't expect him to come back for this one. Z-Bo hasn't suited up since December 19, and he still has no timetable to return as he's still walking with a noticeable limp. The Grizzlies play on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday this week.
