If the Lakers guard complies with this restriction, he is slated to miss the Lakers' games at Houston on December 20, at Houston again on December 31 and at Minnesota on January 1.

"This is a legal matter, stemming from an incident that occurred last season while Kentavious was a member of another National Basketball Association team", the Lakers said Saturday in a statement The Los Angeles Lakers are abiding by the terms of a program for Kentavious that were established for him by a court in the state of MI.

Walton added, "There's still some legal stuff that they're doing still, so I'm not going to comment on specifics".

Caldwell-Pope said that the original plan was for him to leave NY, travel to Detroit for the legal matter and meet the team in Cleveland before Thursday's game against the Cavaliers.

Caldwell-Pope said Saturday that he is disappointed about the situation, and feels as though he let his team down. However, the court put in the new restriction and Caldwell-Pope flew directly back to California to adhere to the court's decision.

The Los Angeles Times, citing people familiar with the situation who weren't authorized to speak publicly, reported that Caldwell-Pope missed the game in Cleveland because he had to return to California to begin an intensive 25-day probation program that includes travel restrictions. The Lakers have leaned on Caldwell-Pope, 24, to provide veteran leadership, turn the Lakers' defense around and at times be the team's closer in close games. Caldwell-Pope will be able to play in that game since he will not be leaving the state.
