Lakers Practice Report: Randle, Ball full participants in practice, expected to play opening night

After some questions after minor tweaks and injuries, it appears the Lakers will be at nearly full strength heading into opening night.

Both Lonzo Ball and Julius Randle, who had ankle and back injuries, respectively, were each full participants in Wednesday’s practice and both are expected to be available for Thursday’s opener against the Clippers.

Likewise for big men Brook Lopez and Andrew Bogut, the latter who did not appear in the preseason.

Guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, who suffered a blow to the face earlier in the week in practice, had a CT scan that revealed no broken bones in his nose.

The only less-than-positive news for the Lakers was that Josh Hart remains questionable for the opener after sitting out practice on Wednesday with Achilles bursitis, an injury he suffered on Tuesday.
