MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Zach Randolph has been ruled out for the Memphis Grizzlies' game against the Portland Trail Blazers due to flu-like symptoms.

Coach Lionel Hollins announced Randolph was ill during his pregame media availability on Friday night.

It was his first missed game of the season

Marreese Speights was slated to start in Randolph's spot. Speights started 54 games last season as Randolph recovered from an early season knee injury.
