Lakers vs Grizzlies Prediction, Picks & Player Props: No LeBron, No Problem?
The Lebron-less Los Angeles Lakers travel across the country down South to take on Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies.
Laker Nation was dealt a big blow when they found out LeBron James would be out for an undetermined period of time with a foot injury.
This is a massive blow for the Lakers late season playoff push and will certainly change the dynamic of the team for the next few weeks and beyond.
Tonight, how will it affect the Purple and Gold on Beale Street against the Grizzlies?
Here is everything you need to know about this Western Conference clash and how to bet on it!

Of course getting the news about LeBron is a tough pill to swallow for Laker fans and the team.
But they have to soldier on and will rely on Anthony Davis and newcomers D’Angelo Russell and Malik Beasley to shoulder the load with the King sidelined.
Davis will have a chance to remind the league of his dominance and further solidify himself as a true force if he can keep the Lakers playoff hopes alive.
All eyes will be on the Brow and it starts tonight in a juicy matchup with Ja and the pesky Grizzlies.
There is no love lost between these two teams, and it should get chippy tonight in FedEx Forum.
The last matchup between these two teams saw drama on the court and off of it, and I expect the same again tonight, even without LeBron.
It is harder to get a read on how things are going to go in this one with the news of no LeBron, but given how the Lakers have faired without LeBron so far this season, I think the Lakers hang around in this one.
Anthony Davis has a chance to make a big statement in his career by carrying this Lakers team through this tough stretch and I think he gets it going tonight.
Give me the Lakers to cover the 9 point spread and maybe even grab a gutsy win in Memphis tonight.

As I mentioned above, I am expecting a big night from AD.
He went through a stretch earlier this season before he got injured where he was putting up 30 a night without even breaking a sweat.
Tonight, with no LeBron and new pieces around him, AD will have to dominate.
He has scored 28+ in 2 of his last 3 games and I expect the same result again tonight.
Davis wasn’t able to suit up when the Grizzlies and Lakers faced off in LA earlier this season so this is his first go at Memphis this year and I expect a big night from the Big Man.
