Chris Paul (leg) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Paul suffered a leg injury a little while ago and has been sidelined ever since, but it looks like he has recovered well and will be able to make his return to the lineup on Wednesday. It remains to be seen if he will have any kind of a minutes limit or not, but either way, he remains a worthwhile option for fantasy purposes.
Chris Paul has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Clippers.
Paul suffered the injury in the first quarter on Tuesday and did not return. Brandin Podziemski should be the biggest beneficiary in his absence.
Chris Paul played five minutes of Tuesday’s 124-123 In Season Tournament loss to the Kings, finishing with three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3PT) and two steals.
Paul appeared to tweak something in his lower left leg, forcing him to exit early in the first quarter and ultimately be ruled out for the remainder of the game. The full extent of the injury is still unknown at this time, making his status for Thursday’s contest against the Clippers unknown. If the veteran does have to miss time, Cory Joseph and Brandin Podziemski would be the most likely candidates to receive increased playing time. However, neither player has any fantasy value and should remain off rosters in all formats.
Chris Paul scored five points (2-6 FG, 1-3 3PT) and dished out ten assists in Friday's 118-112 win over the San Antonio Spurs.
Paul may not have finished with a great performance from a fantasy perspective, but he had a great game in real life on Friday. He led the team in assists coming off of the bench, and his +16 +/- was the best out of anyone on the team by a solid margin. He has proven to be effective off of the bench this year, but that doesn't always translate into as much fantasy success as managers are hoping for.
Chris Paul scored 15 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3PT, 4-4 FT), to go along with twelve assists, six rebounds, and two steals through 34 minutes in Monday's 121-116 win over the Houston Rockets.
Paul continues to impress in Draymond's absence as he's scored in double figures and provided at least eight assists in each of the games that Green has missed. Chris has two more games before Green is slated to return. Paul is making a strong case with his recent play to stay in the starting lineup as he had been coming off the bench with Draymond active.
