Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram Ruled out vs. Grizzlies Due to Injury

Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram Ruled out vs. Grizzlies Due to Injury

Will the Los Angeles Lakers get it done as a small road underdog today when they play at the Memphis Grizzlies?

The Grizzlies fired Fizdale in November after a 7-12 start.

If the Los Angeles Lakers still plan on moving on from Luke Walton anytime soon in light of comments from LaVar Ball and an awkward silence from the front office until recently on social media, the move might be better late than never.

Lonzo Ball's status for Monday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies is in doubt after an MRI revealed the rookie point guard has a minor sprain of his left knee.

He arrived in Memphis on Monday morning, signed a contract that will allow him to split his time between the Lakers and their G-League affiliate, and within hours was on the court warming up with assistant coach Jud Buechler.

Here is all the information you need to watch or listen to the Lakers and Grizzlies game this afternoon on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Indeed, the Lakers' coach cast aside most of the playbook for Payton, as the team just ran repeated pick-and-rolls and tried to score in transition. "If they're ready to play, they will", Walton said.

Mere hours later, all goodwill was lost.

The Grizzlies have beaten the Lakers six straight times at home. He had a 23-point, 15-rebound outing against Dallas, his fifth double-double in the last eight games.

Will the Lakers be able to overcome the injury concerns of Ball and Ingram to keep their winning streak alive? "Like we say, it's other people's job to step up when guys go down". "Obviously we wish they were out here. Got to stay positive and try to get back as fast as I can". "So we've got to take that and run with it".

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the Lakers with 27 points and rookie Kyle Kuzma added 18 off the bench.

At times it felt like the Lakers were waiting for Ingram or Ball to appear and make things happen.

Like Ball, Ingram is also considered day to day.

"They're two of our best facilitators", forward said. That had been a primary focus of the team's scouting report. "That's what we were lacking", Walton said. "They don't want to play for him". The Lakers won the first meeting 107-102 at the STAPLES Center on November 5th. We kind of have similar games, but I'm above the rim more than he was. "We picked it up well in the second, we just didn't bring it in the first".
