Bogdan Bogdanovic will miss Friday’s tilt due to a sprained ankle, though Zach Randolph has recovered from oral surgery and is probable to play.
Randolph will most likely enter the starting lineup, moving Skal Labissiere to the bench. It’ll be odd to see Z-Bo in a non-Grizzlies uniform after all those years, but the Kings should be looking forward to having his toughness and veteran leadership this season. He won’t be a serious fantasy difference-maker, however, and shouldn’t be counted on for anything more than low-end value. Bogdanovic’s continued absence means we’ll likely see the same wing rotation as in the opener, but his return could muddle things up there eventually.
Update: Randolph is a go.
