Hmm @Bill Oram says Kobe came out with ice pack on his shoulder. Per @shahanLA Worthy said on TV "that's normal". Since when?

Gary Lee

Not sure if the Suns crowd is saying “Boo” or “Booz” every time Kobe touches the ball.

Gary Lee

Fun Fact of the Night: Jeff Hornacek used to guard and now coaches against Kobe.

Gary Lee

Miles Plumlee - 2, Lakers - 0.

This is such a great World Series

Bill Oram

Kobe's right shoulder heavily wrapped in ice as he's introduced as a starter here in Phoenix.

Gary Lee

No more injuries, Basketball Gods.

Kobe is wearing an icepack over his right shoulder as he is introduced with the Lakers starters tonight.

Expect Ed Davis to get a lot of minutes for LAL, as he can play both the 4 and 5. W/Randle out, Robert Sacre will see some run at the 5 too.

Byron Scott said he spent some time with Randle after last night's game "basically just holding him and listening to him cry."

Kevin Ding

Here in Phoenix with Lakers and hear @Steve Nash might show up on his old turf. Probably not ready to discuss plight with reporters anyway.

Gary Lee

Pau Gasol in a Bulls uniform <<<

Mike Trudell

It’s likely that Eric Bledsoe sticks mostly to Jeremy Lin. Patrick Beverley did a good job on his former teammate last night.

Mike Trudell

Hornacek detailed that if one guy, say Dragic, tires from battling Kobe for a few trips, he can call Morris over for a switch.

Mike Trudell

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said he’ll deploy multiple defenders against Kobe, but will start with either Dragic or Marcus Morris.

Bill Oram

Wayne Ellington (concussion) is available to play, meaning LAL will have 11 players in uniform. No Randle, Nash, Young or Kelly.

A league source said the league could possibly make an exception for Julius Randle given the circumstances but it hasn't been discussed yet.

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul: Russell Westbrook will be just fine without Kevin Durant latimes.com/sports/sportsn…

Arash Markazi

Julius Randle did play in last night's game which would normally mean he's ineligible for next year's Rookie of the Year award.

Bill Oram

Savant @Eric Pincus is doing a better job of explaining this, but teams may receive multiple disabled player exceptions, cannot combine them.

Arash Markazi

Julius Randle underwent successful surgery today to repair his fractured right tibia and will miss the remainder of this season.

Kamenetzky Brothers

There’s nothing to read. I answered a question. AK RT @c_rodsportswiz: @Kamenetzky Brothers I haven't read it, just saw tweets from fans

Kamenetzky Brothers

Feud brewing. AK RT @jhun88: if he is, he'll have to battle his own new teammate (lakers 2015 top 5 pick) for rookie of the year honors

Kamenetzky Brothers

Interesting Q. Suspect no, but dunno. AK RT @ajgevangelista: is he still eligible for ROY award next season? or he lost the chance already?

Ryan Ward

Lakers have played only one game and already have two players done for the season (Steve Nash and Julius Randle). Brutal. #Lakers

Kamenetzky Brothers

Per the Lakers, Julius Randle underwent successful surgery for his fractured right tibia, but is expected to miss this season. AK

Ryan Ward

No surprise here. Lakers expect rookie Julius Randle to miss the rest of the 2014-15 NBA season. #Lakers

Mike Trudell

Randle becomes the second Laker, after Steve Nash, expected to miss the entire 2014-15 season. Nick Young (thumb) is out until December.

Mike Trudell

Julius Randle had successful surgery to repair a fractured tibia in his R leg. Expected to make a full recovery, he’s out for the season.

Bill Oram

As reported elsewhere, Randle out for season after a.m. surgery. Surgery was performed by Dr. Donald Wiss at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Arash Markazi

The Lakers will be cautious with Julius Randle and his rehab. He will be back next season, essentially as a 20-year old rookie.

Arash Markazi

The timeline for Julius Randle may be 4-6 months but there's no reason to rush him back at the end of this season for obvious reasons.

Bill Oram

Julius Randle's agent, George Bass, confirmed the rookie underwent surgery this morning but referred other questions to Lakers PR

Kamenetzky Brothers

Last night’s post-game comments about Dwight reflect one of Kobe’s more unheralded talents: A mastery at getting the last word. AK

Gary Lee

I'm sure Kobe will tell Julius Randle the same thing. Has to use this setback as an opportunity to get better. Yeah, Kobe's a bad teammate.

Gary Lee

Kobe also suggested Kevin Durant "try to improve the mental aspect of it (the game) and come back a better player."

Gary Lee

When Kevin Durant fractured his foot, Kobe said the following: "Just got to be patient and do what he can in the interim and study the game"

Melissa Rohlin

DJ on how good San Antonio looked: "It looked like the just had an All-Star break, and that's it."

I just brought up two players in recent memory who were out their rookie years. Julius Randle is only 19 and has a long career ahead of him.

Gary Lee

We haven't seen Nerlens Noel in the regular season, but he averaged 8.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 2.3 steals in the preseason.

Gary Lee

Blake Griffin suffered a broken kneecap his rookie season and averaged 22.5 points and 12.1 rebounds the next season in 82 games.

Gary Lee

No official word on Julius Randle yet, but remember this: Blake Griffin and Nerlens Noel were out their rookie seasons and came back strong.

Thunder could be more like a barely audible crackle against Clippers with Durant (foot), Morrow (MCL), McGary (foot) and Jerrett (ankle) out

Ramona Shelburne

The fear last night was Randle could miss 4-6 months, but until surgery is done & he's evaluated again, it's hard to say for sure.

Kevin Ding

Is Dwight going to have a big season? Yes. Has Dwight moved on from Kobe? No. My column from Staples: bleacherreport.com/articles/22486…

Arash Markazi

Kobe called Dwight "soft" and a "teddy bear" last night. He's called him far worse behind closed doors.

Ramona Shelburne

Source says Julius Randle is having surgery this morning. It was a clean break of the tibia. Full recovery expected, but will be out a while

Nothing jarred the mirror. No doors slammed. It just fell and broke. Tim said he was totally freaked out. #cursewasreal

Ramona Shelburne

Tim Thomas told me and @Lisa Dillman the ultimate "Clipper Curse" story .. Was in his hotel room and mirror just fell off the wall. Just fell.

Ramona Shelburne

Last "Clipper Curse" moment was Blake Griffin's broken knee cap as a rookie. Since then, all the bad luck has fallen on the Lakers

Ramona Shelburne

Remember when awful, random, freak things used to happen to the Clippers? Since CP3 "trade," that's been reversed. Just eerie.

Ramona Shelburne

After watching Randle's injury tonight, just cant shake the thought that the Lakers seem to have "Clipper Curse" of years ago.
