Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's attorney Jeffrey Lance Abood tells ESPN: "While a member of the Detroit Pistons last year, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope plead guilty to a misdemeanor offense of allowing someone to operate his vehicle under the influence. As a condition of that plea, he was subject to extremely strict and challenging compliance terms by the court. Kentavious complied with most of the terms of his probation and he has had no further driving or other infractions since that time. "As a result of his professional basketball work schedule, the court has modified the sentence and released him from probation early so long as he completes an intensive program over the next 25 days. There will be some travel restrictions , but we are pleased that Kentavious will now continue with his NBA season and move forward in a positive manner from this experience."

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope statement: "I am grateful for the Court's consideration and for the support of the Los Angeles Lakers and all involved in allowing me to continue with my NBA season while I complete the strict requirements set by the Court. I understand the seriousness of this matter and I apologize for my past actions that have created this situation. Now I am committed to becoming a better person and professional from now on."

Rams LT Andrew Whitworth said he initially feared he had suffered a serious injury on Sunday, but he feels good now. He got his ankle rolled on, which also tweaked his knee. But he said he had a good week of practice and will be fine for the game. C John Sullivan was the only one who missed practice today, but it was due to illness. He'll be good to go, too.
