Julius Randle (toe) will start vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

He was listed as probable due to some soreness in the big toe of his left foot, but his status was never in doubt. He's averaging 11.1 points, 8.4 boards and 2.5 assists, so go ahead and get him active on a six-game Sunday night.

Julius Randle (toe) is probable to play in Sunday's game against Portland.

Randle is dealing with some soreness in the big toe of his left foot, but that isn't likely to keep him out of Sunday's contest. Randle has had an up-and-down season, but he went off for 18 points and 12 boards during Friday's loss to the Raptors. He's not a must-own guy in standard formats, but the upside is there for him to warrant a roster spot in deeper leagues.
Nov 22 - 2:52 PM

Julius Randle scored 18 points against the Raptors on Friday with 12 rebounds and one block in 30 minutes.

He made 6-of-9 from the field and all six from the line. Randle was in a serious slump in his previous three, making just 7-of-23 from the field for a combined 20 points. He'll have some ups and downs, but he's worth owning in standard leagues to see if he can keep it going. He's not a must-own player, though.
Nov 21 - 3:59 AM

Julius Randle scored six points with five boards, two assists and four turnovers in 25 minutes against the Suns on Monday.

He's cold right now. In his last three, Randle averaged just 7.8 points, 7.6 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.4 steals and 2.4 turnovers on 38.5 percent from the field and 60.0 percent from the line. He's attempted 43.6 percent of his shots outside of the paint in that span, which is way too much. He should improve soon, but isn't a must-own player.
Nov 17 - 1:14 AM

Julius Randle contributed eight points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block vs. the Pistons on Sunday, shooting 1-of-3 from beyond three feet of the hoop.

Randle is taking 26.4 percent of his shots in isolation situations, the third-highest rate in the league behind Carmelo Anthony and James Harden -- it's as though he were being mentored by Kobe Bryant. The Lakers' forward oozes potential, but thus far he's been a fantasy liability in typical 8-cat and 9-cat leagues.
Nov 16 - 12:32 AM

Julius Randle's tumultuous season continued on Friday, making 2-of-9 from the field for six points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

He also turned the ball over four times. Randle has been a bit of an inconsistent Zach Randolph on the year, averaging 11.2 points, 8.4 boards, 2.8 assists and 0.6 blocks on 42.6 percent from the field. Although, he's making just 56.8 percent from the line, which pulls him outside of the top 150 for standard leagues.
Nov 14 - 3:40 AM

Julius Randle had a well-rounded performance in Friday's road win over the Nets, scoring 14 points on 5-of-9 shooting (4-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block over 32 minutes.

Randle has started the year off as a late-round value in 8-cat leagues, but in 9-cat leagues his 2.6 turnovers per game has knocked him to the bottom of the top-200. His foul shooting will be an issue this season and if he can stay in the ballpark of his current 1.8 combined steals and blocks per game it will be a big boost. Altogether, he's worth owning but owners need to watch him closely.
Nov 6 - 11:42 PM

Julius Randle returned from an eye injury to score 16 points with five boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Kenneth Faried had his way with Randle in the paint for most of the game, but Randle did look decent on the offensive end and attempted 14 shots on the night (he made seven of them). Randle didn't seem to be too bothered by his eye and he wore protective goggles in the second half, so we will leave him off the injury report.
Nov 4 - 1:39 AM

Julius Randle (eye) has returned to Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets and is wearing protective goggles.

He was clearly in a lot of pain when he went back to the locker room and it was revealed that he was poked in the eye, but he appears to be fine. We'll have an update after the game but his owners have nothing to worry about.
Nov 4 - 12:01 AM

Julius Randler (face) left Tuesday's game against the Nuggets and is getting evaluated in the locker room.

He was in a lot of pain and it's possible that he got hit in the eye (he was squinting a little bit), so hopefully it's not too serious. We'll have an update in a few moments.
Nov 3 - 11:39 PM

Julius Randle exploded for a career-high 22 points and 15 boards against the Mavs during a 103-93 loss on Sunday, adding four assists, four steals and one block in 34 minutes.

He dominated all over the court and continues to bring the ball up in transition on occasion. Randle was coming off a disastrous three-point game on Friday and he'll likely have plenty of ups and downs. He is getting into the paint a lot with 85.3 percent of his shots coming in that range, which helps because he doesn't have a jumper yet. His fantasy owners can start him on Tuesday against the Nuggets.
Nov 2 - 12:56 AM

Julius Randle got eaten up by the Kings on Friday, lasting just 16 minutes with three points, two boards, one assist and five fouls.

Willie Cauley-Stein was a good cover for him and he'll burn the game tape from tonight. With defensive stat deficiencies, he needs to go huge with the popcorn stats to justify stashing him. Owners may want to wait more than two games before cutting bait, but he can't have nights like this and make it work.
Oct 31 - 2:41 AM

Julius Randle scored 15 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 11 boards and two assists vs. the Wolves on Wednesday.

Randle started the game and played 30 minutes while Brandon Bass saw just 17 minutes. Randle was pretty aggressive tonight and it looks like he could record a lot of double-doubles this season, but he will need to generate some more defensive stats in order to become an excellent fantasy asset. Given his projected role, he should be owned in all standard leagues.
Oct 29 - 2:23 AM

Julius Randle scored 14 points in 12 minutes against the Warriors during a shortened 85-70 win on Saturday, adding three rebounds and two fouls.

The court was slippery and the refs called the game after Leandro Barbosa slipped with 2:15 left in the third quarter. As for Randle, he is feasting in the paint this preseason and added his first make outside of the paint tonight. Randle isn't a shot blocker, so he's not a terrific target in standard leagues unless it's in the late rounds. Owners in points leagues can be a little more aggressive for a guy who could post a lot of double-doubles.
