Chandler has only played nine minutes over the past three games. The 36-year-old big man is averaging 3.7 points and 6.8 rebounds in under 19 minutes per game with the Lakers this season.
Caldwell-Pope has only started four games this season. He is averaging 9.9 points per game.
The Lakers have lost 6 of 9 games without LeBron James and are hoping this will help turn things around.
