Unfortunately for Memphis fans, both Jackson and Bane have now been downgraded to out just before tipoff.

It is worth noting, though, that Wednesday's clash is the second night of a back-to-back set for the Grizzlies. Jackson and Bane both put in their usual workload on Tuesday in a win against the Orlando Magic, so they may be given the night off on Wednesday.

As for the Clippers, Kawhi Leonard was a late scratch due to personal reasons. He will be joining Paul George and Marcus Morris Sr. on the shelf for LA.

However, with regard to the question of Are Jaren Jackson Jr. and Desmond Bane playing tonight vs. the Clippers, the answer is no.
