Lakers News: Julius Randle Does Not Need Right Foot Surgery

There was some fear that Los Angeles Lakers’ first round pick Julius Randle would need foot surgery to repair a previous injury from his high school days that didn’t heal properly.

Those fears have now been put to rest as the Los Angeles Times’ Mike Bresnahan reports that Randle will not need foot surgery:

This comes as great news for Randle and the Lakers as he could have missed up to six months if surgery had taken place. This also will also likely allow Randle to participate on the Lakers’ Summer League team.

Assuming Randle signs his deal before it starts on July 11, Randle will join fellow draft pick Jordan Clarkson on the team, along with Kendall Marshall and a host of other interesting prospects.

Randle was considered one of the most NBA-ready draft prospects and many believe he will slide into the Lakers starting lineup immediately. He is expected to bring the Lakers a physical presence on the low-block, and great rebounding.

Randle grew up a fan of the Lakers and Kobe Bryant in particular, so he is undoubtedly relishing the chance to play with his childhood idol. Getting the chance to participate in the Summer League should also benefit him as he can test himself against NBA players and develop chemistry with his future teammates.

    Julius Randle is the best player ever.He is a mix of LeBron James and Tim Duncan all in one person.Lakers used the pick on the best player in the draft.

    • wangkon936

      The reality distortion field is strong with this one.

      • Tune

        “Jordan Clarkson is like a mix of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Kareem, Bird, and Malone” will be the next one.

    Randle looks exactly the same height as Howard was when he stood side by side Mitch…

    • wangkon936

      Mitch (also listed at 6-9) looked an inch taller.

      • dice

        yeah, he did… and Randle is still just 19, he is going to grow an inch or 2, by the time he is 21.

  • Manny

    The Lakers have the best rookie from the best draft in a decade plus.The only reason Julius Randle went #7 was the foot report that someone wanting him to come to LA put out.Andrew Wiggins will be a bust and Jabari is too fat.Julius is #1.
