Memphis Grizzlies star forward Zach Randolph will miss up to eight weeks due to a slight tear of his MCL on his right knee, according to The Commercial Appeal.

It was reported yesterday that Randolph was expected to miss some time with a bruised right knee, however an MRI has revealed a slight tear which require a much longer recovery period than initially expected. According to The Commercial Appeal, Randolph will not require surgery and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The 30-year-old injured the knee when he fell hard in the final seconds of the first quarter against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.
