A disabled player exception was granted to the Los Angeles Lakers by the NBA to allow the team to fill the roster spot of rookie forward Julius Randle, who is out for the season with a broken leg suffered in the regular-season opener.

Randle’s roster spot can be filled for around $1.5 million, approximately 50 percent of his rookie salary.

No such exception was applied for by the Lakers to replace point guard Steve Nash. His $9.7 million salary could still be used to recoup an asset near the trade deadline. Nash has been ruled out for the season because of chronic nerve issues in his back.
