One day after both Julius Randle and his Godfather said Randle didn’t need foot surgery, the former Kentucky star reiterated his position after a workout with the Celtics.
“It’s never been considered,” the 6-foot-9 Randle said according to Boston.com. “I’ve met with my own doctor and talked to specialists, some of the best doctors in the world and they’ve said they wouldn’t do anything with it. I probably wouldn’t be working out if I needed surgery.”
He added that nobody has asked him to have surgery on the right foot he initially injured in high school.
“It won’t be an issue,” Randle said. “Whether a team wants me to have surgery or not, it’s a minor injury in the first place that I suffered in high school. The longest you are out is 12 weeks or something like that [with the surgery]. I’d probably miss summer league or something like that, but nobody said they want me to have surgery.”
