Lakers’ Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is listed as questionable with a left ankle sprain ahead of tonight’s matchup against the Grizzlies
The Los Angeles Lakers have seemed to be over the rocky start they had. After having a shaky 2-2 start to begin the season, the defending champions are now cruising as they boast a 5-2 record. They split their games at home, and are 3-0 on the road.
The Lakers face the Grizzlies tonight for the second of the back-to-back matchups in Memphis. Just like the previous season, LeBron James and Anthony Davis are spearheading the Lakeshow.
LBJ is averaging 23.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 7.4 assists to begin the season. Anthony Davis has been putting up 21.2 points and 8.8 rebounds while shooting at 41.2% from the 3 point line.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope listed as questionable
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope sprained his left ankle in the Lakers’ 109-103 win over the San Antonio Spurs. Ever since then, he has not taken the floor for the Lakers. Before leaving the game, KCP had put up 11 points and 2 rebounds in 17 minutes.
The Los Angeles Lakers have listed him as questionable in their injury report for tonight’s game.

KCP has been out for a game, and would probably not play tonight’s matchup against the Grizzlies as well. When asked about his return, the Lakers’ guard said he does not feel any haste to return. KCP finds the Lakers’ bench is deep enough for him to take his time with the injury rehab.
