Julius Randle had a bad game against the Clippers on Saturday, scoring four points with eight rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 28 minutes.
He did suffer a small injury in this game. Randle sort of tripped over his own foot and tweaked his left ankle. After playing a few possessions, he went down in pain for about a minute and didn't need to miss time. Just keep an eye on this injury for Sunday. Jan 14 - 6:11 PM

Julius Randle scored a team-high 22 points during a 134-94 loss to the Spurs on Thursday, adding six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

The other four starters scored just 20 points combined while they couldn't stop a nosebleed on the other end. Randle was coming off a six-point dud on Tuesday, but his playing time is soaring with 31.2 minutes per game despite a ton of garbage time. Randle has sixth-round value in the last month, which is about right going forward.
Jan 12 - 11:43 PM

Julius Randle finally cooled off on Tuesday vs. Portland, scoring six points on 2-of-9 shooting with 10 rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes.

Randle had a nice game against the Blazers on Jan. 5 with 17 points, nine rebounds and five assists and Portland is ranked 29th in defensive efficiency, so it was tough to see this dud coming. He gets a tough matchup vs. the Spurs on Thursday but then faces a Clippers team on Saturday that is still missing Blake Griffin (knee).
Jan 11 - 1:28 AM

Julius Randle (sprained left ring finger) finished Sunday's game with 19 points, nine boards, five assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes.

Randle has been awesome lately, adding some defensive stats to fill out his points, rebounds and assists, and he even made a 3-pointer tonight for just the fifth time all season. He played 25 minutes on Friday but that was due more to the lopsided score, and nothing about his sprained finger suggests that it will linger.
Jan 9 - 1:42 AM

Julius Randle (sprained left ring finger) will start Sunday's game, as expected.

The Lakers have a handful of players listed as 'probable' tonight, including Jordan Clarkson, Luol Deng, D'Angelo Russell and Tarik Black, but there's been no suggestion that they're in any danger of missing time. Start your Lakers' players as usual.
Jan 8 - 9:29 PM

Julius Randle (finger) is probable to play against the Magic on Sunday.

He popped up on the injury report all of the sudden on Friday, but he was cleared and played well in his 25 minutes. Randle has seen more of the offense go through him and should have a good chance to produce even in a sub-par matchup.
Jan 7 - 4:41 PM

Julius Randle (finger) scored 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting in Friday's win over the Heat.

This game was over in a hurry, so Randle only logged 25 minutes with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block. He also hit all three of his free throws. Randle was considered questionable to play tonight, but X-rays on his finger were negative and he was diagnosed with a sprained ring finger on his left hand. If tonight was any indication, he's going to be just fine.
Jan 7 - 1:35 AM

Julius Randle (finger) will play and start vs. the Heat on Friday.

X-rays were negative and Randle is said to be dealing with a sprained ring finger on his left hand. He suffered the injury on Thursday night vs. Portland, but it's going to take a lot to slow him down because he's been on a tear lately. Get him active.
Jan 6 - 9:33 PM

Julius Randle (finger) is questionable to play on Friday vs. the Heat.

He reportedly has a sprained ring finger on his left hand and will get x-rays within the next hour. We should get an update shortly, but expect to see a lot of Thomas Robinson if Randle isn't cleared to play.
Jan 6 - 8:47 PM

Julius Randle hit just 4-of-13 shots and 9-of-11 free throws for 17 points, nine rebounds, five assists and a steal in 37 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Blazers.

Randle was coming off a 19-14-11 triple-double, but couldn't get his shot to fall tonight. He's playing at a pretty high level, tonight's poor shooting aside, and is a strong power forward play on a nightly basis in all formats right now. The amount of young talent in the league right now is simply shocking, and Randle is one of the guys to watch over the next few years.
Jan 6 - 1:10 AM

Coach Luke Walton said he's expecting Julius Randle to get more triple-doubles going forward.

"If he plays with the alertness and the focus he did last game, he’s gonna fill up the stat sheet on most nights," Walton said. Randle created a lot of buzz with his triple-double on Tuesday and has been trending up over his last five since becoming a dad, averaging 18.0 points, 9.2 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.4 blocks. Nick Young also called Randle "the Juggernaut with handles" after the game. He looks like he'll have a strong finish.
Jan 4 - 3:50 PM

Julius Randle posted a triple-double with 19 points, 14 rebounds and 11 assists in Tuesday's 116-102 win over the Grizzlies.

It's the third triple-double of his career and this one is noteworthy, as the Grizzlies hadn't allowed a triple-double in an NBA-leading 177 games. Randle shot 9-of-15 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line with one steal, and he's now averaging an impressive 18.0 points, 9.2 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five.
Jan 4 - 1:24 AM

Julius Randle got into early foul trouble and never got it going on Thursday, hitting 5-of-10 shots for 18 points, just four rebounds, three assists and nothing else in a 101-89 loss to the Mavericks.

Randle had 25 points and 12 rebounds on Tuesday, but the foul trouble stymied him tonight. He'll bounce back in the next one.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 01:15:00 AM

Julius Randle scored 25 points with 12 rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Jazz.

He also hit one triple in the loss, so he's now 4-of-19 from deep on the season or 21.0 percent. Randle dominated against a tough Jazz frontcourt, hitting several contested shots over Rudy Gobert and finishing 9-of-12 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line. He had 13 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in his previous game, so look for him to stay hot in a favorable matchup with the Mavericks on Thursday.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 01:17:00 AM

Julius Randle (personal) returned on Sunday after missing the past two games, posting 13 points, eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

Randle missed games on Thursday and Friday following the birth of his child, but he didn't miss a beat tonight with a well-rounded performance in the Lakers' home win. He's faded after a hot start to the season, but L.A. will be leaning on him heavily with Larry Nance (knee) out for roughly the next month.
