Luke Walton admits that Alex Caruso could get some consideration to start at point guard with Lonzo Ball out. Caruso had nine points, eight assists and four rebounds in 30 minutes on Sunday against the Knicks while Tyler Ennis logged 11 minutes and went scoreless. Walton, though, does like the pairing of Caruso with Jordan Clarkson off the bench. "I don't think I will try it but he is an option," Walton said of Caruso starting in the future. "... He has got great size, he is tough, he can guard multiple positions in a modern NBA where a lot of teams switch everything, especially second units. We told him that he needs to work on is being able to knock down that spot-up 3-point shot. He is a good crafty playmaker when he gets in the paint so I think he is fine there... if he is hitting that shot consistently, I think in my opinion he is definitely a consistent NBA rotational player."
