The Athletic's Shams Charania reports LeBron James will miss "an extended period of time" due to the right foot injury sustained in Sunday's win over Dallas. Yikes. Just when the new-look Lakers looked like they were about to turn the corner and make a playoff push, King James is out indefinitely, and Charania notes that the team is "bracing for his absence to be multiple weeks." D'Angelo Russell is doubtful for Tuesday, which means Dennis Schroder should handle a sizeable workload as the Lakers' floor general, while Malik Beasley, Troy Brown, Lonnie Walker IV and Austin Reaves should all see bumps in playing time and production. Schroder and Beasley are solid adds in 12-team leagues, while Brown, Walker IV and Reaves are best suited for deeper leagues.

Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin

Ja Morant led the Grizzlies with 23 points (9-for-18 FGs), seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in a 112-94 win over the Nuggets on Saturday. Ja didn't have a standout game, but he did a lot in his 24 minutes. He was limited by how quickly the game got out of hand, as Memphis took a 24-point lead into halftime. They bounced back after allowing the 76ers to complete an improbable comeback in their first game after the All-Star break, and Morant made sure they would get back on track in this game. The Grizzlies hold a two-game lead over the third-place Kings and have two days off before they take on the Lakers on Tuesday.
