The Los Angeles Lakers on Monday were granted a Disabled Player Exception by the NBA in the wake of the long-term leg injury suffered opening night by rookie forward Julius Randle, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN.com that the Lakers were granted the exception, valued at $1.5 million, after it was determined that Randle is “substantially” more likely than not to miss the remainder of his first pro season.
