Draft pick Ryan Kelly will not play for Lakers summer league team

Ryan Kelly, the Lakers’ second-round draft pick, attended the team’s summer-league practice Wednesday, but he’s not going to play in Las Vegas after undergoing a second foot surgery in as many years in April. Kelly, a 6-foot-11 forward from Duke, gave this update on his rehab and recovery: “I’m starting to do some light shooting and some work in the pool. I feel great. I’m happy with the place I’m in right now. It was an unbelievable feeling (to be drafted by the Lakers last month). It couldn’t have been a better place for me. I’m very happy with where I am. Obviously, I have a lot to prove.”
