Zach Randolph scored 16 points on 7-of-17 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block over 38 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Lakers, but rolled his right ankle and could be questionable for Friday’s game against the Spurs.
Randolph gets quite a bit of time to rest and they’re still 3.5 games ahead of the No. 6 seed Blazers and 6.0 games ahead of the Jazz at No. 9. They’d need to go 0-10 while the Jazz go 7-5, or 6-4 while the Jazz go 12-0, in order to tie with them and no we don’t know who has the tiebreaker. In other words, they have a ton of wiggle room here and they’re not going to push Randolph. We’ll have a ton of updates between now and then to figure it out.
