Pistons' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope out due to groin through next week

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed Thursday night's 111-105 win over the Knicks with a right groin strain, an injury Detroit expects to sideline him through next weekend's All-Star break.

Caldwell-Pope left the game in Wednesday's loss at Boston after he appeared to slip on a wet spot on the court late in the second quarter.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he had an MRI and would be evaluated by doctors Thursday night.

Caldwell-Pope is averaging 14.6 points per game this season.
