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.

–Guard Nemanja Nedovic was waived by the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Nedovic did not appear in a game for the Warriors this season, but as a rookie in 2013-14, he played in 24 games and posted averages of 1.1 points, 0.5 assists and 0.6 rebounds in 5.9 minutes per game.

Nedovic spent 15 games with the Warriors’ D-League affiliate in Santa Cruz last year, tallying 14.9 points, 4.2 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 28.5 minutes.
