Caldwell-Pope avoids major knee injury

Auburn Hills, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - MRI results showed no structural damage to Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's left knee, the Detroit Pistons announced Monday.

Caldwell-Pope injured the knee in the third quarter of Detroit's preseason loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday.

The injury has been reclassified as a knee strain.

Caldwell-Pope will miss Detroit's preseason games this week and will be re- evaluated when the team returns following a road trip.

The second-year guard out of Georgia averaged 5.9 points per game during his rookie campaign last year.
