Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay both in uniform for Grizzlies

The AP reports:

Memphis forwards Zach Randolph and Rudy Gay were both in uniform for Friday night’s game against the Toronto Raptors, putting the Grizzlies at full strength for the first time since Jan. 1.

Randolph, an All-Star last season, has been out since tearing the MCL in his right knee on New Year’s Day in Chicago. He was averaging 14.8 points and 7.5 rebounds in the four games before the injury. Last season, Randolph led the team with 20.1 points and 12.2 rebounds per game.

Memphis coach Lionel Hollins said Randolph will not start. Marreese Speights , who the Grizzlies picked up Jan. 4 in a trade with Philadelphia, has filled in for Randolph at power forward, averaging 9.3 points and 6.4 rebounds.
