Anthony Davis and the Lakers have to step up.

Anthony Davis is going to have to step up and lead this Lakers team through a very difficult stretch of basketball. As we reported yesterday, LeBron James is going to miss a significant amount of games over the next couple of weeks. Overall, this is due to a foot injury that will be re-evaluated in about two weeks from now. Ultimately, this is horrible timing for the Lakers as they are trying to get themselves into the postseason. Although, without LeBron, that task is going to be a whole lot harder.

Last night, the Lakers played against the Memphis Grizzlies, who are the second-ranked team in the Western Conference. In the end, it was the Grizzlies who were able to come out on top. Consequently, the road to the playoffs has become significantly more difficult for the purple and gold. They will have to win a higher percentage of games to end the season, and there is no telling if they can actually pull that off. The Lakers are now relying on AD, who had a message for James after last night's game.

Anthony Davis Speaks

"I don't want him to rush back early," Davis said. "I want him to get completely right and healthy before he comes back. It's on us to step up and win basketball games." Rushing back early would be the worst possible thing for LeBron to do. However, it is clear that Anthony Davis needs some help. The Lakers were able to improve their roster at the trade deadline, but they still aren't as good as some of the other teams in the West. Needless to say, fans in Los Angeles better start praying for a miracle.

As for the Grizzlies, they are a team trying to get back on track. They went on a huge losing skid recently, but seem to be back in the driver's seat. Overall, they are a team to watch out for as the playoffs approach in April. Let us know your thoughts on the Lakers and Grizzlies' chances, in the comments down below.
