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.
