Julius Randle scored 26 points with eight rebounds, seven assists and five turnovers in 37 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

He's really picked it up and he came through in the hometown game. Randle is a huge fantasy winner from the Larry Nance Jr. deal and he's already really picked it up even before the deadline. He should be looking at a strong finish to redeem his bad start this season.

The Lakers have turned down several teams offering second-round picks for Julius Randle, but no one will offer a first-round pick with him headed into restricted free agency, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of

This really isn't a big surprise because it's not like Randle will be fetching a ton of offers this summer. The Lakers are also expected to push back their big free agent push until 2019, so that also makes it less likely he's dealt. For now, expect him to stay put and hold decent fantasy value. We'll see if Brook Lopez gets dealt today.

Feb 7 - 1:05 AM

Julius Randle scored 19 points with 12 rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes against the Nets on Friday during a 102-99 victory.

The Lakers are giving him the most run he's seen all season and he's fared well with it recently, averaging 16.8 points, 10.2 boards, 2.4 assists and 0.4 steals in 27.6 minutes over his last five outings. The question is if the Lakers are doing this to showcase him in a trade or because they like him. Either way, he should be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 2 - 11:29 PM

Julius Randle stayed hot on Wednesday with 20 points on 7-of-9 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws, nine rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes.

Randle has been ultra-efficient over L.A.'s previous four games, averaging of 18.0 points (55.1% FGs, 81.8% FTs), 10.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 0.8 steals. He's cruising right now and we haven't heard his name mentioned in trade rumors recently, which is great news for fantasy owners.
Jan 31 - 10:21 PM

Julius Randle finished with 17 points, 10 rebounds and five assists over 25 minutes in Sunday's 123-111 loss in Toronto.

Randle has scored in double digits across six straight games, one short of a season high streak. He is averaging 18.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game across the past four outings, too, and is playing his best basketball of the season. Randle's playing time continues to trend up and his turnovers are down. That's a tremendous sign as far as his growth is concerned.

And he's hot right now, averaging 17.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 0.8 steals over his last five, hitting 32-of-52 shots over his last four games. He's playing well and the minutes are trending up, so make sure he's not available in your league. And watch for an update on his tailbone over the next couple days.
Jan 24 - 1:21 AM

Julius Randle posted a 27-point, 12-rebound double-double during Sunday's win over the Knicks, adding five assists, one steal and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Randle has been fairly consistent with the points, boards and dimes over the past few weeks, but the general lack of defensive stats and turnover issues have been a major hindrance to his fantasy value. We've heard his name floating around the rumor mill a lot lately with the trade deadline approaching, and he's certainly played well enough as of late to attract some suitors, so it'll be interesting to see if there's any fire to the smoke. A trade away from Los Angles wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.
Jan 21 - 6:51 PM

Julius Randle (finger) was able to start Friday's 99-86 victory against the Pacers, finishing with 14 points.

Randle hit 7-of-12 from the field while adding four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot over his 20 minutes. He is playing with a jammed right ring finger and fracture, but the ailment didn't seem to affect his shot in the win. If you were hesitant to use him in your fantasy lineup because of the injury, fear not. He looks like he'll be just fine playing through the situation.
Jan 20 - 1:57 AM

Corey Brewer, Kyle Kuzma, Julius Randle, Josh Hart and Tyler Ennis will start against the Pacers on Friday.

The Lakers are missing a lot of bodies here and they'll go small against the Pacers. Randle is also playing with a finger fracture.
Jan 19 - 10:26 PM

Julius Randle jammed his right ring finger and suffered a fracture, but he’s scheduled to play against the Pacers on Friday.

It's being called a mallet fracture, which is just below the tip of Randle's finger. The Lakers will need him with Brandon Ingram (ankle) possibly missing this game. Randle is a lefty, so this injury may not affect him too much on offense. He's an option in DFS and should be owned in standard leagues now that he's seen consistent minutes.
Jan 19 - 2:38 PM

Julius Randle played just 22 minutes and had nine points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block on 2-of-7 shooting in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Randle is alternating big games with duds right now and the Lakers were getting blown out in this one. Luke Walton rolled mostly with his bench brigade in the second half and this was a disappointing night for Randle, given that both Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball were out with injuries. Randle had 23 points and 15 boards in his previous game and will look to get back on track against the Thunder on Wednesday night. Hang in there with him.
Jan 15 - 8:12 PM

Julius Randle posted a 23-point, 15-board double-double during Saturday's overtime win over the Mavs, adding two assists and seven turnovers over 33 minutes.

Randle scored the first points of the game for the Lakers, and also hit the game-clinching basket on an impressive putback bucket in OT, so all in all this was a solid performance following Thursday's scoreless outing. With Brandon Ingram (ankle) and Larry Nance Jr. (eye) going down in this one, Randle could be looking at big minutes on Monday in Memphis if neither of those guys can play.
Jan 13 - 5:28 PM

Julius Randle played just 18 minutes and missed all six of his shots, failing to score for the first time this season in Thursday's win over the Spurs.

He picked up three fouls in the first half and saw his minutes limited, while Larry Nance had one of his better games of the season. It was a bad combination for Randle, who was coming off a big game on Tuesday when he had 22 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a 3-pointer. Randle had been rolling, but it just wasn't his night. Don't drop him, but do look for him to bounce back against the Mavericks on Saturday.
