Zach Randolph expects to play Saturday against the Chicago Bulls. A sore back forced the Memphis Grizzlies power forward to miss Friday night's win over the Sacramento Kings, snapping a three-game losing streak.
The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported that Z-Bo would try to play Saturday. He injured his back in Wednesday against the San Antonio Spurs.
Marreese Speights filled in Friday and almost double-doubled (10 points and nine rebounds with two assists and a steal).
Z-Bo is having a solid season: 16.4 points (49.4 FG% and 76.3 FT%), 11.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, .8 steals and .5 blocks.
