Anthony Davis (right ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Pacers.
Well, that was fast. With Kyle Kuzma also out on Tuesday, we may see more Jared Dudley than usual, while possibly seeing LeBron James starting at PF for this contest. Devontae Cacok, who was called up from the G League earlier today, could also see some minutes on Tuesday.

According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Lakers have signed Devontae Cacok to a contract.
Cacok was with the team for the preseason but ultimately didn't make the final roster. It is highly likely that he is on a two-way contract with the news that the Lakers waived two-way player Zach Norvell to make room for Cacok. Cacok is off the fantasy radar.

Devontae Cacok and Demetrius Jackson have been waived by the Lakers.
Cacok had some nice summer league and preseason games, but it'll be tough for him to crack an NBA rotation. Demetrius Jackson has played in just 26 NBA games since being drafted in the second round three years ago.

Devonta Cacok notched a double-double in a losing effort against the Warriors on Friday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and one block.
Cacok got a rare start in this one along with Troy Daniels (five points, two rebounds, two steals and a three) and Jared Dudley (four points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one three). Don't expect any of these guys to have any value in standard leagues beyond the occasional stream.

The Lakers have inked Devontae Cacok to an Exhibit-10 contract.
The E-10 will give Cacok some extra bonuses if he lasts on the G-League roster for certain periods of time. There's little precedent for E-10 players to make the big club in their first season but it is a nice show of faith from a team that figures to need affordable players to fill out the bench. Cacok averaged 15.2 points and 12.3 boards with UNC Wilmington last season, and he's also the first player to lead the NCAA in three different categories over three seasons (field goal percentage, rebounds per game and double-doubles).
