Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has been ruled out of Sunday’s Game 4 against the Phoenix Suns, the Lakers said shortly before game time.

Anthony Davis, who like Caldwell-Pope was listed as questionable with a knee injury, is available to play.

Caldwell-Pope went through pregame work on the court with his injured left knee heavily wrapped. He injured the knee in Game 3 defending a screen roll, hyperextending it when it made contact with a Suns screener.

He underwent an MRI on Friday that revealed no structural damage. The team has called the injury a “knee contusion.”

Although he’s only made one of his 13 three-point attempts in the series’ first three games, he’s been the primary defender against Suns scorer Devin Booker. In the Lakers’ two wins, the team has been plus-29 with Caldwell-Pope on the floor.
