Zach Randolph to miss a few games after knee injury

Watch that video, it could have been a whole lot worse.

O.J. Mayo fell awkwardly on a drive right into Zach Randolph’s knee and dropped Randolph to the ground in pain in a game against the Bulls Sunday. It’s scary.

Randolph will be out on Tuesday but shouldn’t miss a lot of time, reports the Commercial Appeal.

Randolph is believed to have a bruised medial collateral ligament, which usually is nothing serious. However, barring miraculous healing, the Grizzlies’ power forward will sit out tonight’s home game against the Sacramento Kings.

Randolph still experienced swelling in the knee Monday. He didn’t practice and walked with a serious limp. Randolph is listed as day-to-day, although it appears he’ll need a little time off to recover.

Starting Wednesday the Grizzlies head out on a three-game road trip and Randolph will travel with the team. There is no specific timetable for his return, but Randolph has proven durable through most of his career.
