Injury Update: Clippers – Magic
1:05PM: Chris Paul AND Blake Griffin will NOT play tonight for the Clippers. If Jameer can go, the Magic may have a chance…
11:30AM: Both J.J. Redick and Arron Afflalo will be OUT for tonight’s Magic game against the L.A. Clippers. Jameer Nelson and DeQuan Jones are listed as game-time decisions.
Arron Afflalo and J.J. Redick won’t play tonight, Jacque Vaughn said. But an MRI on Redick’s sore shoulder showed no damage

The good news for the Magic is that 1) Redick does not have any structural damage to his shoulder and 2) Afflalo will be back on Friday when the Magic play against the Cavs. None of the four injured players are likely to miss more than a game or two more, which will allow the Magic to continue listening and having trade discussions before the deadline without teams fearing that Orlando is peddling injured goods.
Chris Paul is listed as OUT for the Clippers and Blake Griffin’s status won’t be known until close to game time.
Updates will be posted throughout the day as they become available.
