News: Caldwell-Pope (knee) is in line for an expanded role after the Pistons announced Jodie Meeks (back) would miss at least eight weeks. Impact: Caldwell-Pope is dealing with a left knee strain, which will keep him sidelined for a couple more preseason games, but the second-year shooting guard now seems to have a direct path to the starting lineup with Meeks on the shelf. While we'll still need to see if Caldwell-Pope can avoid any injury setbacks and earn the starting gig, he certainly becomes a more interesting late-round dart with Meeks out of the picture for the first quarter of the regular season.(RotoWire, )

News: Caldwell-Pope (knee) will miss the Pistons' next three preseason games, before being re-evaluated next week, the Oakland Press reports. Impact: Caldwell-Pope suffered a left knee strain Sunday and fortunately a Monday MRI revealed no structural damage. Nonetheless, the second-year swingman will be held out of Detroit's three preseason games on the road this week. Following that rest period, KCP will be re-examined next week, putting his earliest possible return date at Oct. 23 versus the 76ers.(RotoWire, )

News: Caldwell-Pope left Sunday's preseason game with a left knee injury. Impact: Caldwell-Pope, who is off to a strong start this preseason, exited Sunday's matchup with the Wizards after scoring 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt) in 24 minutes. Little is known about the nature and severity of the injury at this time, but further updates will be available once details emerge. If Caldwell-Pope misses any time, Jodie Meeks could gain an edge in the battle for the starting shooting guard spot.(RotoWire, )

News: Caldwell-Pope (knee) suffered a left knee sprain in Sunday's preseason game against the Wizards. Impact: Caldwell-Pope will be further evaluated when the team returns to Detroit, but at this point it looks as though he'll miss more than just a day or two. The Pistons are yet to provide an estimated return date, but if he's out for an extended period, Jodie Meeks figures to be the primary beneficiary.(RotoWire, )
