As the Los Angeles Lakers gear up for their first-round NBA Playoffs matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies, all eyes are on Anthony Davis.

The Lakers are expecting big things from the superstar, especially since the Grizzlies are missing key players Brandon Clarke and Steven Adams in their frontcourt.

However, before the series-opener on Sunday, there is some concern regarding Davis' injury status.

Davis is listed as probable to play with a right foot stress injury, which is the same issue that caused him to miss several games earlier in the season.

Despite this, it seems that Davis is relatively healthy overall, and it would be a surprise if he were to sit out for Game 1. As such, his addition to the injury report may not be cause for alarm.

LeBron James and Dennis Schroder are also on the Lakers' injury list, but both are listed as probable. Unless there is a major unforeseen setback, it is expected that both James and Schroder will be able to suit up for Sunday's game.

It is clear that the Lakers are taking their first-round matchup against the Grizzlies seriously, and they are counting on their star players to lead the way.

With Davis, James, and Schroder all expected to play, the Lakers should be able to put up a strong performance in Game 1.

However, the Grizzlies will not be an easy opponent, even with their missing players. The Lakers will need to bring their A-game to secure a victory in the series-opener and set the tone for the rest of the playoffs.
