Caldwell-Pope turned in 32 points (11-31 FG, 5-15 3Pt, 5-7 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal across 44 minutes in the Lakers' 104-101 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday. With the Lakers sporting a mile-long list of key absences, Caldwell-Pope once again stepped up as the usage monster for the night. The veteran easily paced all scorers in shot attempts and posted his second straight 32-point effort in the process. KCP also has 23- and 25-point tallies on his April resume, and he's demonstrated excellent late-season scoring upside on multiple occasions when given sufficient minutes. However, the book on Caldwell-Pope remains the same as it always has -- he's a streaky shooter than can always turn in just as bad of a clunker as he can a lights-out effort such as Tuesday's. Therefore, it remains to be seen whether he'll be able to find a starting job elsewhere in the 2019-20 campaign after playing this season on his second consecutive one-year contract with the Lakers.
Caldwell-Pope turned in 32 points (13-22 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds, six assists and a steal across 42 minutes in Sunday's 113-109 win over the Jazz. Caldwell-Pope led the short-handed Lakers to a surprising win in their penultimate game of the season. With a litany of injuries decimating their roster, Caldwell-Pope has remained a steady playmaker throughout. While he was the subject of many trade rumors this season and his future with the team is uncertain moving forward, he'll try to keep things rolling in their final game against Portland on Tuesday.
Caldwell-Pope totaled 25 points (9-25 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals across 40 minutes in the Lakers' win over the Clippers on Friday. Caldwell-Pope had a productive game in Friday's surprise win, registering 25 points and a healthy final stat line. With injuries piling up, Caldwell-Pope has taken on an expanded workload for the Lakers, averaging 19.3 points, 4.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals in 32.7 minutes over the last 10 games.
Caldwell-Pope collected 23 points (9-16 FG, 5-10 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 119-103 loss to the Thunder. Caldwell-Pope canned at least five threes while scoring at least 20 points for the fourth time in the last eight contests. After basically being an afterthought across most fantasy leagues for the majority of the season, Caldwell-Pope has come on strong lately for the injury-riddled Lakers.
Caldwell-Pope supplied 19 points (8-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), one rebound and one steal in 29 minutes Sunday in the Lakers' 130-102 win over the Pelicans. Caldwell-Pope has been delivering these sort of scoring outbursts with regularity lately, but this one wasn't particularly useful for fantasy purposes since it came with no three-pointers and very little other supporting numbers. Even so, Caldwell-Pope's averages of 19.2 points, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 triples and 1.8 assists over the past five contests are useful enough to make him worth considering in weekly lineups ahead of the Lakers' three-game slate.
