Lakers forward Julius Randle will undergo surgery on Tuesday morning to replace the screw in the fifth metatarsal of his right foot. This is to repair and clean up an old high school injury. The surgery will be performed by Dr. David Thordarson of the Cedars-Sinai Orthopaedic Center.
It was previously declared that Randle would miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season after suffering a fractured tibia of his right leg in the season opener on October 28.
He is expected to make a full recovery.
