Alvin Gentry is leaning towards keeping Payton on the sidelines in their final two games heading into the break, which makes sense, considering how much trouble Payton has had staying on the floor this season. Frank Jackson will get another start tonight while Jrue Holiday will spend more time operating with the rock.

Payton was reportedly set to test his ankle during Tuesday's shootaround, but we didn't get an update on how that went, which isn't a great sign. He's likely headed towards a game-time call, but if he's out again, that should result in another start for Frank Jackson.
