Randolph, who was traded to Memphis during the offseason, was a last-minute scratch. Second-year forward Darrell Arthur started in Randolph's place.
Randolph averages 20.8 points and 11.8 rebounds for Memphis and was selected for the All-Star Game this season.
It was the first game the ninth-year forward out of Michigan State has missed this season.
