The Memphis Grizzlies have been without 6-9 Zach Randolph since Jan. 3 due to a torn right medial collateral ligament.. He and teammate Tony Allen could be found Monday night hosting a party for women and children from a local homeless shelter in honor of Valentine's Day.

"I come from a single-parent home. My mother was on welfare. It's really important for me to give back," said Randolph, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. "These people probably don't have one special person in their lives to help them out."

Of course, the Grizz would like to also see Randolph back on the court. It looks like that is about to happen. The Commercial Appeal reported Monday that Randolph has been cleared to begin non-contact basketball drills on the court. That puts him on pace to return in early March.

There is no target date set, but the paper theorizes that Randolph could be back for the March 7 game against the Golden State Warriors.
