Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (knee) starting for Lakers Tuesday; Wes Matthews back to bench

Los Angeles Lakers guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is in the lineup Tuesday in the team's game against the Phoenix Suns.

What It Means:

Once it was announced that Caldwell-Pope was cleared to return to the court following a knee injury, this was a given. He'll take his place on the wing in the starting five, sending veteran Wes Matthews back to a bench role.

Our models currently project Caldwell-Pope for 10.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 20.2 FanDuel points across 30.1 minutes of action.
