The Lakers had referees at practice Friday and they were instructed not to call ticky-tack fouls, but forward Julius Randle was hit in the mouth and began bleeding. He stayed in for the next drill. It's not clear if he'll need stitches. "I think they missed that [foul]," Lakes coach Luke Walton said of the officials. "When another guys is bleeding, it's usually a sign they got fouled."

Luke Walton was asked to evaluate how the Lakers' rookies sang to a crowd Thursday night. "I respected the effort but not impressed with the talent," he said. Years ago, Walton endured plenty of rookie hazing alongside veterans such as Shaq and Kobe Bryant, though he wouldn't clarify what exactly happened. "Yeah, I've seen a shrink about it," Walton said with a grin. "Had to block that out of my life."

The Lakers' practices have featured fun competitions under new head coach Luke Walton, including a 3-point shoot-out, one-on-one battles and a home-run pass challenge. " I definitely wasn't expecting that," says point guard D'Angelo Russell. "It feels like you're going back to your roots, going back to high school days and stuff like that, where you're just competing and laughing about it at the same time."
