Lakers’ Julius Randle in positive spirits after season-ending right leg injury

first_imgJulius Randle emerged into a Lakers’ press conference room Tuesday struggling to sit on a chair, his crutches and cast around his right leg symbolizing the franchise’s battered state.It also tells the story on how Randle’s rookie season ended only four months after the Lakers drafted him seventh overall. Exactly a week ago, Randle collapsed after driving into the lane midway through the fourth quarter of the Lakers’ season opener against Houston, something he just described as “a regular play.” The Lakers’ training staff and players immediately attended Randle near the Rockets’ basket. After Randle’s leg was immobilized, he was soon lifted onto a stretcher and taken to a nearby hospital. “I’m not down or upset,” said Randle at halftime of the Lakers’ game Tuesday against Phoenix at Staples Center. “I had my share of tears and frustration. But I’m over it. I’m just motivated.”In what marked his first public comments since his injury, Randle called his setback part of “God’s plan” and added ‘He wouldn’t put me through anything I can’t get through.” Randle then offered more perspective that will resonate with star Kobe Bryant, coach Byron Scott and a franchise fixated on winning NBA championships.“It’s tough not to be out there and play, but now I can become an extreme student of the game,” said Randle, who hopes to walk with only one crutch in six weeks. “Not even with just watching our team and watching how the game is played. Now that I’ve been there and got a feel for it, I know what I need to work on.” The Lakers already sensed Randle had that mindset in the past week. He had surgery the next day at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, an approach that helps expedite recovery. Randle said he has talked to former Lakers James Worthy, whom was selected No. 1 overall in 1982, fractured his left tibia and missed the 1983 NBA playoffs. Bryant also talked with Randle, sharing his perspective about returning from injuries to his left Achilles tendon and left knee that kept him out last season for all but six games.“He was one of the main people the night I broke it, he texted me and we were talking,” Randle said of Bryant. “He was one of the main people to help me get out of my pity party.”Randle said he was dispatched last Friday and no longer needs to take pain medication, though he reported feeling dehydrated. Randle also visited his teammates at the Lakers’ practice facility on Tuesday during morning shootaround. He expressed gratitude for the “team camraderie” that surrounded him during his injury and after surgery.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
