Forward Brian Randle is out for Maccabi vs Limoges with continuous hamstring irritations.
Welcome to the NBA, rooks: Julius Randle, Marcus Smart, Aaron Gordon & now Cleanthony Early. All dealt significant injuries (Smart less so).
Magic rookie Aaron Gordon fractured a bone in his left foot and is out indefinitely...tough luck w/ him and Julius Randle both now out.
It’s not easy finding five PFs and five Cs for position-by-position rookie rankings. Put it this way: Julius Randle almost made the cut.
Brian Randle just demolished Jayson Granger with a monster block at one, followed by a fast-break slam at the other.
Recall mentioning how several Euro teams passed on Brian Randle. He's a stud for Maccabi, has 10 points on 5-for-6 FG vs Malaga.
I know Lakers fans hate losing, but imagine how good a frontcourt of Julius Randle and Jahlil Okafor could be in a few years. Scary.
It's really too bad Julius Randle is hurt. Would have been fun to see him go up against Z-Bo -- the vet he's most often compared to.
With Ellington away, Kelly officially ruled out), Young, Randle, Nash hurt, Lakers have 10 players available tonight.
Randle's injury was pretty conclusive - while Nash can still swing a golf club :)
Lakers, I'm told, have been granted a Disabled Player Exception after losing Julius Randle for the season worth nearly $1.5 million
Julius Randle here at Lakers working on some rehab - arm bike
Memo to Jason Garrett: Let Brandon Weeden hand off to Joseph Randle the rest of the day.
Joseph Randle running like he stole something. (There, I finally got to use that line).
Replay looked bad on Smart's ankle. As with Randle, have to feel for these kids.
Marcus Smart's left ankle landed on Lavoy Allen. 10 days after Julius Randle is hurt, Smart is carried out. http://t.co/8LAcNh4oI0
First Julius Randle, and apparently now Marcus Smart. Brutal couple of injuries to the 2014 rookie class these first two weeks of the season
Lakers list Ryan Kelly as quesitonable for Sunday vs. Charlotte Hornets - Nash/Randle/Young obviously out - same 5 probable starters
Asked Kobe about helping Julius Randle in search to educate himself while out injured: “A lot of talking. Just talking to him every day.”
Kobe on how he’s helping Julius Randle through the process: “Taking to him everyday.”
No huge revelations from Randle in halftime comments. Confirmed Kobe helping him over "pity party." Plans to study the game this season.
