Description: Center Chris Kaman has reached a deal with Portland, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski.
Insight: Kaman is just a backup these days and has little to no fantasy value except as a handcuff.

Description: Lakers center Chris Kaman will miss his fourth consecutive game Tuesday against the Rockets.

4/5/2014 3:29:00 PM
Description: According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Lakers center Chris Kaman will sit out again Sunday due to a calf strain.

4/4/2014 2:04:00 PM
Description: According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Lakers center Chris Kaman will miss Friday's game due to a calf strain.

Description: According to Dave McMenamin of ESPN, Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said he'll give the Pau Gasol-Chris Kaman combination a try in the starting lineup Tuesday.

3/31/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles center Chris Kaman was unstoppable Sunday in a win over Phoenix.
Insight: Kaman got loose for 28 points, 17 rebounds and six assists in 32 minutes of court time. He should continue to be a solid fantasy option until Pau Gasol (vertigo) returns from illness.

Description: Lakers backup center Chris Kaman arrived to the arena shortly before game time and will start Thursday, according to Mike Trudell of lakers.com.

2/21/2014 2:17:00 PM
Description: Lakers center Chris Kaman will move back to the bench with the return of starter Pau Gasol.
Insight: Though there was some talk about starting both big men, its not going to happen. The Lakers Friday night starting lineup will be Gasol, Wes Johnson, Ryan Kelly, Kendall Marshall and Jodie Meeks. Looks like the end of Kaman's fantasy value.
