Los Angeles Lakers' rookie Julius Randle will not need surgery on his foot, and may be able to play in the NBA's summer league, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times.

Shortly before the draft, it was reported that Randle might require surgery for a right foot injury, and that he had put the procedure off in order to work out for teams. Randle denied the reports, and after undergoing a series of tests with the Lakers' medical staff, he has been cleared to play without having a screw removed from his foot.

Johnson: Doug McDermott and Bulls: perfect union or destined to disappoint?

Randle has yet to sign a contract with his new team, but if an agreement is worked out before summer league begins next week, the former Kentucky Wildcat would join the Los Angeles squad in Las Vegas.
