UPDATE: Feb. 24, 8:51 p.m. — George and Beverley are both available to play vs. the Grizzlies. With PG-13 and Pat Bev back, Marcus Morris and Reggie Jackson should head to the bench. PG’s hamstring has been bothering him a lot, so I’d be surprised if he’s given extended minutes depending on how the game goes. With Beverley back, Ja Morant should have a tougher time getting what he wants on offense.

Los Angeles Clippers SF/PF Paul George and PG Patrick Beverley are both questionable to play Monday vs. the Memphis Grizzlies.

George has been dealing with a nagging hamstring injury and was injured prior to the All-Star break. He’s got a chance to play, but before the break coach Doc Rivers was concerned about the re-aggravation. Beverley has a groin injury that held him out of Saturday’s matchup vs. the Kings. He had missed four games before the break, though.

If PG-13 can get back into the lineup, Marcus Morris probably goes to the bench in a lesser role, though I still think he’ll see 20+ minutes. Beverley’s return would send Reggie Jackson to the bench as well and it’ll be interesting to see how Rivers adjusts his rotation, which is becoming very crowded.
