I have this issue quite often, in LR7 but had it in LR6 too. Not always, but  sometimes. Restart LR may help, but it also seems to happen more frequently the more content is on the cards. Freshly formatted cards are mostly working fine.

A likely cause is a bad monitor profile - see this thread: https://www.lightroomforums.net/threads/no-photos-only-grey-boxes-ive-tried-everything.6991/

I have had this problem too in LR 7 Classic CC and in LR 6 CC, but mousing over the grey boxes makes them refresh with the image previews.
