This morning it seemed Julius Randle would be heading for surgery on his foot following the Draft. Following a pair of tweets by Randle, though, that idea is in doubt.

 

What Wojnarowski says will happen usually happens in the NBA, so this story is far from over. Additionally, ESPN.com confirmed Woj’s report later in the day.

According to several team executives, the 6-foot-9 Kentucky forward’s broken right foot hasn’t healed correctly — and sources confirmed a Yahoo! Sports report that Randle may need surgery after the June 26 NBA draft that will keep him out of summer league.

 

“This is an issue,” one executive told ESPN.com. “It didn’t heal right.”
