Report: Chris Paul (knee soreness) will play vs. Clippers
Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul will play against his former team, the L.A. Clippers, after being diagnose with knee soreness, according to ESPN’s Tim MacMahon.
Paul will have the day off from practice today, allowing him to rest an extra day before lacing them up on Thursday, per coach Mike D’Antoni.
He was asked if there was anything wrong with his knee after being originally listed as “questionable” with knee soreness, to which he comically replied “did they? I don’t know why.” So your left knee isn’t sore? “I’m cool.”
The floor general is coming off a brilliant 18-point, nine-assist outing against the San Antonio Spurs in a mere 23 minutes, shooting 8-of-11 from the floor and 2-of-4 from deep.
The 32-year-old point guard is averaging 18.7 points and 8.7 assists per game in March, shooting 49.4 percent from the floor and 43.3 percent from beyond the arc — a sight D’Antoni has been glad to see thus far this season.
Paul has played a pivotal role in the Rockets’ success this season, currently two games clear of the Golden State Warriors for first place in the West.
