Memphis will probably be without forwards Brandon Clarke and Jontay Porter for the first preseason game Saturday night against the Timberwolves in Minnesota. Both players are listed as doubtful; Clarke with groin soreness and Porter with knee soreness. Neither injury is considered to be serious, but the Grizzlies are taking precautions, according to league sources. There is still a possibility Clarke and Porter could play in the preseason.
