Julius Randle will likely need foot surgery after the NBA Draft and will miss around two months.
Randle was likely to be a top 5-10 pick in this year's upcoming NBA Draft, and still could possibly go in that range despite this recent injury news. From a fantasy perspective though, even before this injury, Randle would be a suspect pick that high in your rookie drafts as he is undersized at the position and does not have the leaping ability, nor the wingspan to really make up for his height deficiencies at the position. One asset that Randle does possess is that he has a Charles Barkley-like body that could allow him to still have a successful NBA career, but there are just too many red flags, especially considering he will now require foot surgery, to warrant risking a first round rookie and/or dynasty league selection on him. Better mid-first round players to target over Randle, regardless of where they are drafted on June 29th, include PF Noah Vonleh or SG Garry Harris or consider trading down in your draft and snagging SF T.J. Warren or SG P.J. Hairston.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
MLB/MLBPA panel is deadlocked over whether Josh Hamilton should be sent to rehab.
Hamilton's fate rested in the hands of four people, and the votes were split on whether or not to send the former All-Star to rehab. Hamilton was known to have failed at least six drug tests as a minor leaguer and was suspended from baseball from 2004 to 2006. He is in the third year of a five-year, $125 million deal and the Angels are hoping that he is on the field. He has been a bust since inking this contract and he is worth no more than a last round draft pick, especially with this relapse news. Analysis: Colby Conway
