The Los Angeles Lakers rookie forward (Julius Randle) said Tuesday was the first day he left his house since breaking his right leg in his debut a week ago against Houston, likely sidelining the team’s top draft choice for the rest of the season.
And in his first public comments since the injury, Randle, who was drafted seventh overall in June out of Kentucky, said he is focused only on moving forward.
“I haven’t pouted,” he said during halftime of the Lakers’ 112-106 loss to the Phoenix Suns. “I haven’t pointed the finger and said, ‘Why me?’ Honestly, there’s just motivation. I can’t wait to get back right so I can go out and be successful for my team.”
