NBA Regular Season has sprouted in full flow and its essence has been already felt among the wide variety of basketball fans. In this game, the Los Angeles Clippers host Memphis Grizzlies to add to the NBA canon. More about LAC vs MEM Dream11 such as injury report, statistics, and Expected Fantasy Points Range will be given below.
The clippers lost the last game due to a Stephen Curry storm. But some encouraging signs emerged out of the game. Bledsoe racked up a solid game while George continued to pound the defenders in all aspects. The Clippers will remain without the services of Kawhi for many months and it is great that the team has a long list of veterans to carry the load. Expect the Clippers to hit huge strides once Kawhi returns, but don’t sleep on the current talent either.
Grizzlies beat the Cavaliers in the last game but that is not the true test of their strength. The barometer will be how they perform against squads like Clippers. Ja Morant has become a points machine and keeps on making the game look easy. The squad has a lot of depth at the guard position and the acquisition of Steven Adams gives them a lot of ruggedness up-front. How will the team respond to the George-led Clippers?

Paul George is a superstar. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBAfantasy lineup.
Ja Morant can do a lot of things on offense.
*stats from the last game*
Paul George (MEM)
George will have to once again carry the load in absence of Kawhi. He showed in the season opener that he is more than ready to carry the load. George will be most likely leading the team in points, rebounds, and assists if he is healthy.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 50-60
Ja began the season like he ended the 2020-21 season. He has begun with a bang and will aim for a 25-30 PPG season while carrying the Grizzlies deep in into postseason. The athletic guard is poised to be the future of this league.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 50-59
Eric Bledsoe (MEM)
After a so-so 2020-21 season, Bledsoe made an emphatic return to the Clippers. The guard showed he still has pop in his legs and had a big night in the win against the Warriors.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 25-33
Adams was a great pick-up by the Grizzlies management in the off-season. He brings a lot of defense and muscle at the Center position. The Center led the team in rebounds during the last game and you can expect more of the same regularly.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 27-35
Terance Mann (MEM)
Mann is slowly turning into a “Sixth Man” type of player and the Clippers do need him with their flailing reserves. If Mann put in 10-14 PPG and 5-7 RPG that will be a huge help.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 23-29
Desmond Bane (MEM)
Bane is an incredible attacking offensive option and began the season with a bang. However, he may not get the same production regularly but even getting to 15 points is a huge help.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 28-34
Ivica Zubac (MEM)
Zubac has done a decent job of holding the fort at Center with Ibaka out of the picture for a long time. Ibaka is likely to return for this game so the Center can see his minutes reduced.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 14-19
Jaren Jackson (MEM)
Jaren is a special Forward who can play tough on both ends of the floor. He can become a big factor for the Grizzlies in terms of cracking the Playoffs code. Fantasy lovers, watch for those blocks!
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 37-43
Reggie is a dynamic scorer though he shot just around 20% in the last game. He has every tool in his box to recover from such games. He can act as a 15-20 points scorer at a regular clip.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 28-34
Melton belongs to the wide list of guards who can score for the Grizzlies. He is set for a big role although it will be interesting to see how much he plays till Brooks returns?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 28-36
Marcus Morris (MEM)
What can Morris supply this year? 10-15 points regularly?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 17-24
Kyle Anderson (MEM)
“Slow-mo” Kyle can score, rebound, and act as a playmaker, a do-it-all player.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 26-34
Luke Kennard (MEM) had 7 points, 4 assists in the last match. EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 13-16
Tyus Jones (LAC) had 9 points, 5 assists in the last game. EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS RANGE: 16-22
