Kentavious Caldwell-Pope opened up about the absence of LeBron James and Anthony Davis and what adjustments the Lakers have made.

Caldwell-Pope said team-first basketball and playing for each other have helped the Lakers endure the absence of their two superstars.

“It just builds everybody’s confidence on the team knowing that playing without them guys, leaders on the court and off the court, it just helps us figure out who we are without our superstars.

Team-first basketball and just playing for each other. I feel like that’s helping us build that chemistry without our two superstars and then when they come back it should be the same as far as how we’re playing and just our role,” Caldwell-Pope said, via Lakers Nation.

Davis has been out since February 13, but he is expected to return next week. For his part, James is expected to miss another two weeks. Without the four-time champion, the Lakers have lost eighth of their last 15 games.
