Los Angeles Lakers
News out of LA isn’t good as the foot injury LeBron James suffered late in the comeback versus the Mavericks is expected to keep him out an extended period
James miraculously played through the injury that is now expected to require multiple opinions, sources said, and the Lakers are bracing for his absence to be multiple weeks. https://t.co/zuovQ2wVzc

Clearly, the timing couldn’t be worse as the Lakers try to climb up the seeding ladder (currently 12th). Of their recent games the Lakers had collected important victories against conference teams (Warriors x2, Pelicans, Mavericks).
If James has to miss an extended period of time the onus will fall on Anthony Davis’ shoulders to accomplish their goal of finishing sixth.
On the negative side, LA allows opponents to score an average of 117.9 points per game ranking 24th. Their opponents shoot 47.0% from the field and 34.7% from behind the arc ranking 10th and sixth respectively.
Another key point, the Lakers score 117.0 points per game which rank sixth-best while shooting 48.1 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from the perimeter ranking 10th and 26th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- LeBron James, SF (OUT —tweaked his ankle late on Sunday)
- D’Angelo Russell PG (doubtful— ankle )
The loss of Steven Adams resulted in a stumble by the Grizzlies but they collected some important victories recently against the Wolves and Nuggets.
Certainly, the Big Kiwi’s presence might have changed the result in the games versus the Celtics and 76ers who they battled but ultimately lost to.
Meanwhile, offensively, the Grizzlies score 115.9 points per game ranked ninth overall. Memphis shoot 46.9% from the field ranking 19th, and 34.3% from the perimeter ranking 24th.
Memphis still owns the best opponent field goal percentage of 44.8% while limiting opponents to 111.9 points per game and 35.6% ranking sixth and 12th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Steven Adams C (OUT indefinitely —PCL strain)

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Memphis Grizzlies NBA Prediction:
The old adage ‘father time is unbeaten’ sure applies to the LeBron injury. To wit, in 15 seasons James missed only 71 games but in his last five has missed 98 (and counting).
I’d probably still have taken the Grizzlies to win if LeBron was playing especially since they’re at home but James’ absence adds to that belief. I’m tenuously also taking Memphis to cover.
