Julius Randle Needs Surgery; Out 2 Months?

Updated

on

University of Kentucky forward Julius Randle, considered a top 10 pick, likely needs surgery on his right foot after the NBA draft in June, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The procedure is expected to keep Randle out six to eight weeks this summer, sources said, but there’s a strong expectation within front offices that he’ll be cleared for the start of training camp in the fall.

In this scenario, Randle would miss rookie summer league in July.

Randle, who is 6-foot-9, is still planning workouts with teams, including Boston on Friday, league sources said.

As a high school senior in Texas two years ago, Randle missed three months with a fractured right foot. There was a screw placed into his foot that needs to be removed as a precautionary procedure, sources said.
