Los Angeles • Mo Williams and Derrick Favors are both be game-time decisions for the Jazz on Wednesday when they play the Clippers at Staples Center at 8:30 p.m. Mountain.

Williams did not play in Tuesday's blowout win against the Lakers in Anaheim to rest a strained right adductor (groin) muscle. Favors, meanwhile, knocked knees with a Laker in the second quarter and when he woke up Wednesday, it was swollen.

"I'll go out there and warm up during pregame," he said, "and if it feels good I'll try to go."

Williams is averaged 11 points and 5 assists in the three preseason games he played, while Favors has struggled offensively in four, including two starts.

Clippers points guard Chris Paul is expected to make his second start of the preseason for the Clippers on Wednesday after having surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb in August.
