Lakers coach Byron Scott said that Randle would "definitely" return in time for Summer League, according to L.A. Daily News beat writer Mark Medina.
A team spokesman later backtracked slightly from Scott's statement, telling Medina that it was more accurate to say that the team is "optimistic"
Randle has been sidelined since suffering a fractured tibia in his NBA debut in the season opener against the Rockets. He will not return this season due to the tibia injury.
Randle will have surgery to replace a screw in his fifth metatarsal. Randle is already expected to miss the entire season after breaking his leg in the season opener. While Randle doesn't need the surgery now, the team has decided it's best to get it out of the way. The club is hoping this will prevent a future injury.
Randle broke his leg during the season opener, and will not return this season. He is no longer on crutches, however, and is currently traveling with the club during road trips. Randle scored two points in his only game.
The first-round pick suffered a broken leg during the season opener and will miss the remainder of the season.
With the exception, the Lakers can sign or claim a player off waivers for $1.5 million or trade for a player making up to $1.6 million.
