Chris Paul’s dad says son doesn’t feel sorry for himself despite untimely postseason injuries
Paul was ruled out for Game 6 this morning, which only adds to a plethora of untimely postseason injuries that have plagued his progress in his quest for the playoffs.
Paul’s father; Charles, noted his son isn’t down on himself for the inexplicable nature of these injuries.
“To get here and have this,” Charles Paul said, shaking his head, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne. “It comes with the job. You never know what’s going to happen.”
“Chris doesn’t feel sorry for himself. He’s like, ‘OK, this is what happened. We got to make the best of it.’ He’ll talk to the players on the team and say, ‘Hey, I’m still going to be there, even if I don’t play.’”
A team source told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon that his hamstring was still “really sore” late Thursday night and that he had felt “a twinge” upon landing after a jumper in the last moments of Game 5.
Now that Paul is a no-go for a potential closeout game on the road, the Rockets could still get him back after he is re-evaluated following his eventual return to Houston for a potential Game 7 between the two Western Conference juggernauts.
