Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) will not be able to play in road games on Wednesday, Dec. 31, and on Jan. 1.
Due to the legal matter, he can't leave the state of California for 25 days, so he won't play against the Rockets twice and the Wolves once. For now, Caldwell-Pope is going to be able to play in the home games and the game in Oakland on Friday. With him out on Wednesday, it'll likely be Josh Hart getting another start. Dec 16 - 4:36 PM

Coach Luke Walton said Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) could miss games again at some point this season.

This doesn't necessarily mean KCP will miss Monday against the Warriors. If he is going to miss time, it'll likely be Josh Hart stepping up in the starting lineup.
Dec 16 - 4:01 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed Thursday's game vs. Cleveland due to a legal matter.

KCP plead guilty to a misdemeanor offense of allowing someone to operate his vehicle under the influence while he was with the Pistons last season, and he was required to return to California to "begin a 25-day program that will result in travel restrictions and could cause him to miss additional games." He will join the Lakers for practice this weekend, but his fantasy owners will have to monitor his status closely over the next month. For now, expect him to play on Monday vs. GSW.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) will not play on Thursday vs. Cleveland.

KCP is playing nearly 35 minutes per game this season, so the Lakers will likely use a committee approach to absorb his workload. The Lakers haven't announced a replacement starter yet, but Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer and Josh Hart are candidates to see increased roles. Clarkson offers the most streaming upside with 13.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.8 triples over his last five games in just 22.0 minutes.
Dec 14 - 7:07 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 8-of-20 shots and 4-of-14 3-pointers for 24 points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals in 38 minutes on Tuesday.

This was his second-highest scoring total of the season, but it wasn't a thing of efficient beauty, especially from downtown. He's scored at least 20 points in five of his last nine games and this was his best showing of December, if you discount the poor shooting. He's playing a ton of minutes for the Lakers and should be owned everywhere, but owners have to be prepared to take the good with the bad, just like with most of the rest of the Lakers this year.
Dec 12 - 10:52 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 15 points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

KCP was on fire to close out November with four straight 20-plus scoring games, but he's cooled off a little as a scorer in December. In those four, he's averaged 11.8 points, 3.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.3 treys on 39.5 percent from the field. He is what he is as a guy who should score in the teens with treys, pick up some steals, and hurt FG%.
Dec 10 - 1:03 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope stayed red hot on Monday, hitting 12-of-28 shots and five 3-pointers for a season-high 29 points, six rebounds and three steals in 37 minutes in a loss to the Clippers.

He scored 16 points in the first quarter and has now scored at least 20 points in three straight games, and hit double figures in seven straight games. If he's available in your league, pick him up, as he's averaging 19.6 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.4 steals and 3.6 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five.
Nov 28 - 1:22 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points with nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's win over the Bulls.

He played a whopping 39 minutes, hitting 6-of-11 shots and 5-of-7 free throws. KCP has been hit-or-miss this season, but he's been a lot more consistent over his last five games with 15.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 2.2 steals and 3.0 triples. He has to be owned while he's this hot, but just be prepared for some duds on the nights his shot isn't falling.
Nov 22 - 1:18 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 12 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

The Lakers are getting all they can out of Caldwell-Pope on his one-year deal. KCP has played 36.0 minutes per game over his last five, averaging 11.8 points, 5.8 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.8 treys on 37.5 percent from the field. If you're OK with subpar shooting, he should have some value in most situations.
Nov 16 - 1:33 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block during Wednesday's road loss in Boston.

KCP showed no ill effects from the hip injury that caused him to briefly exit Sunday's game. He played 36 minutes and is good to go for the rest of L.A.'s games this week vs. the Wizards (Thursday) and Bucks (Saturday).
Nov 8 - 11:12 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (hip) is in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He did have a minor left hip issue on Sunday, but Caldwell-Pope was never expected to miss this game.
Nov 8 - 8:03 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (left hip) exited Sunday's game but he did return, finishing with 15 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and a pair of 3-pointers.

KCP wound up making 5-of-11 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in 35 minutes tonight. He came up huge in the final minute with a blocked shot and made jumper to give L.A. some breathing room, showing no signs of the hip injury, but we'll leave him on the injury report as a precaution. He should be fine for Wednesday's game in Boston.
Nov 6 - 12:27 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit just 2-of-11 from the floor, including 0-of-5 from the perimeter, to finish with just seven points and a minus-20 rating in Saturday's loss at Utah.

KCP has been brutal from the floor lately, hitting just 3-of-16 over his past two outings while turning in an 0-of-6 from 3-point land. He showed what he can do against New Orleans in his season debut when he bagged 20 points in 31 minutes, but he'll need to show more consistency if he is going to hold off Jordan Clarkson.
Oct 29 - 1:46 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope was held to two points on 1-of-5 shooting in 28 minutes vs. the Raptors on Friday.

His Lakers career got off to a hot start with 17.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.5 triples in his first two games, but he's always been a streaky shooter. It looks like he'll have a nice role on the wings for the Lakers this season with Jordan Clarkson apparently in the doghouse, so his owners just need to take the good with the bad.
Oct 28 - 1:23 AM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope looked good in his Lakers debut on Sunday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs, with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

KCP sat out the first two games due to a suspension, but he didn't miss a beat tonight. He should have a career-high usage rate as the starting SG on a fast-paced Lakers team this season, but don't get used to tonight's efficiency -- he's a career 40.5 percent shooter (33.4 percent from deep). In four seasons with Detroit he never averaged more than 3.7 boards, 2.5 assists or 0.2 blocks, so it'll be interesting to see if he can expand his game.
