Norichika Aoki is not in the Royals starting lineup on Sunday.
Though nothing has been confirmed, Aoki is sitting today because of a sore elbow that he sustained after being hit by a C.J. Wilson pitch on Friday. He did play on Saturday, so this is likely just a precautionary measure. Expect to see him back on the field on Monday.ANALYST: David Kerr
Zach Randolph (illness) will not play on Tuesday.
With Zach Randolph and Beno Udrih sitting out because illness and Tony Allen serving a one-game suspension, the Grizzlies will lean on Marc Gasol and Mike Conley to carry the load against Utah. Kosta Koufos could be in line to get the start with Randolph out, but is not worth a look in the fantasy department. Analysis: Keith Tro
