• Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    SG, Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are expected to start Danny Green and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in Game 1 against the Blazers on Tuesday.

    CJ McCollum and Damian Lillard have been on fire lately and with Avery Bradley not with the team and Rajon Rondo doubtful, the Lakers will need their best defenders on the court. This will also allow LeBron James to run the point while Alex Caruso and Kyle Kuzma will provide the necessary spark off the bench. KCP missed the season finale with the Kings due to a right foot contusion but he is not on the injury report for Tuesday’s game.
