Mike D’Antoni: A ‘Long Shot’ Chris Kaman Plays In Final Three Games


Following the 112-95 Laker loss to the Golden State Warriors, the Lakers have three games left in the season.

Injuries hobbled the Lakers for the majority of the season and held most of the roster out of games. Through the final stretch, Chris Kaman has been sidelined while dealing with a calf issue.

As the Lakers prepare for their last three games, head coach Mike D’Antoni revealed Kaman is unlikely to see any action for the rest of the season, according to Bill Oram of the OC Register:

When Kaman signed with the Lakers in the off-season, he expected to be an integral part of the Lakers’ rotation. The Lakers were hoping Kaman could provide some front court depth. However, as the season progressed, Kaman rarely saw playing time except when injuries left the Lakers thin up front.

For most of the season, the Lakers used Pau Gasol as their starting center. When Gasol went down with vertigo, Kaman finally saw some game action and actually started against the Phoenix Suns. With the rare oppurtunity, Kaman put on a show and played his way to a double-double in an upset win.

Despite the frustration over not getting playing time over the season, Kaman has tried to remain professional as of late. Kaman’s contract is set to expire at the end of the season leaving Kaman to become a free agent. The Lakers will be entering an important off-season and will have interesting decisions to make in the upcoming draft and free agency.
