KCP perimeter man to man defense is elite. Hope it’s just a minor injury

That's great news. A quad contusion is 2-3 weeks minium, and up to 6 weeks if moderate. If he hyperextended it I feel a lot better

LET'S GO

I don’t think anyone missed playoff games with hyperextended knee. Him and Wes made booker really look bad today

This dude made a clutch steal on Booker that led to his second basket that I felt was HUGE when the offense completely bogged down for both sides that 2nd quarter. Im not counting on his shot to turn around immediately as he still looks like he has little confidence shooting but I am hoping for 30% from 3 for him....that should be enough

He hasn't really contributed much these 3 games unfortunately offensively or(the first 2 games) defensively. I honestly feel like Wes Matthews put more pressure on the Suns because he could actually hit a three.

Always will like KCP's hustle, but he really was off the first 2 games, and in game 3 his offense still wasn't there. But the difference in this game was him taking it to Booker and making it difficult for him. But we really blew open the lead when Wes came in and hit those 2 threes.

Wishing KCP a speedy recovery.

KCP help Booker to 0 fer in the fourth quarter of game 2. Booker didn’t hit a shot at all, he just got free throws. He’s taken him out these two games much like he did the last regular season game which is why Booker got mad.

Tucker also got benched after game 2 because he gave Book an easy one that game and missed a rotation and Frank isn’t letting him get that fire started, so instead he’s comfortable with Wes, Kuzma, and Caruso making the defense work

Why does KCP get so much hate on LG? Elite defender, 41% threes, clutch.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's bruised left quad showed slight improvement since Gm 3 and an MRI administered Friday revealed no tear, sources told ESPN. The Lakers guard will see how he responds to rest and treatment come Saturday and his status will be determined for Sunday's Gm 4


Very good news.

Conflicting reports. One report says quad contusion and Trudell says knee contusion.

Quote:
Injury Update from the Lakers a bit ago: “Kentavious Caldwell-Pope underwent an MRI today which confirmed no structural damage and a mild left knee contusion. He will be listed as day-to-day.”

Hopefully he’ ok because he’s a vital part of this team.
KCP has been a dog defensively (-29 in this series). We definitely need his energy, grit and effort.

KCP's injury was foreseeable.
He wasn't moving well. He played 70-80 games in the past 9 months.
He's been a legit soldier for us. One of the few guys still around who:
1) Won with us last year
2) Played well doing it.
