Randle Cleared by Foot Specialist

The Lakers sent freshly minted draft pick Julius Randle to Indiana for a Wednesday appointment with renowned foot specialist Dr. David Porter, who determined that Randle does not need surgery on his foot.

Randle has been cleared for all basketball activity, and is expected to play for L.A.'s Summer League team in Las Vegas.

Dr. Porter agreed with doctors who had previously examined Randle that surgery was not necessary, as GM Mitch Kupchak suggested was the case at Randle's press conference on Monday.
