Julius Randle took to Twitter on Thursday to refute reports that he may require surgery to remove a screw from his surgically repaired right foot after the draft.
The original report from Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that several teams are concerned that not dealing with the issue now could lead to problems down the road.
It's unclear whether Randle is denying that he will have the procedure, which was never firmly reported, or just Wojnarowski's report that teams are concerned. Wojnarowski, who rarely gets anything wrong, is probably well sourced on what teams are thinking, perhaps even more so than Randle's camp.
In any case, Randle should tread lightly. Woj is the Don Mega of basketball reporting. You come at the king, you best not miss, and all that.
