The Memphis Grizzlies announced that Jaren Jackson Jr. (knee) and Justise Winslow (back) are likely to return within the next week.

Jackson Jr. has been out with a left knee sprain, while Winslow has been out with back soreness.

Jackson Jr. has been out since Feb. 21 and Winslow has been out since Jan. 8.

Winslow has yet to play for the Grizzlies since being traded from the Miami Heat.

Before getting hurt, Jackson Jr. was averaging 16.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.

In only 11 games this season, Winslow is averaging 11.3 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game.

Unlike Jackson Jr. and Winslow, Brandon Clarke will still be out for the forseeable future with a right quadriceps strain.

Clarke is still expected to return before the end of the season, however.

The Grizzlies currently have a record of 32-32 with a four-game lead on the New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kings for the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference playoff race.
