The Los Angeles Clippers could be without their superstar point guard for a second straight game.
If their most recent contest was any indication, they should be just fine.
Chris Paul will likely be a game-time decision for the Clippers as they continue a three-game road trip Tuesday night against the Houston Rockets.
Paul is day-to-day with a bruised right kneecap and missed his first game of the season on Monday, but the Clippers (29-9) matched their second-largest victory margin of 2012-13 in a 99-73 win at Memphis.
He sustained the injury when he bumped knees with J.J. Redick while chasing a loose ball in Saturday's loss to Orlando. Results of an MRI were negative. Paul is second on the team at 16.8 points per game, second in the league in assists (9.7) and first in steals (2.6).
"I want to play. No question, I want to play," Paul told the team's official website. "If I feel like I hinder the team then I won't."
Eric Bledsoe had 14 points wi...
BEST OF MAXIM
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Clippers point guard Chris Paul has a contusion in his right kneecap and will not play Monday night against the Memphis Grizzlies at the FedExForum.
There also is a good chance that Paul won't play in Houston on Tuesday night in a back-to-back game.
Paul didn't participate in the Clippers' shoot-around earlier Monday, sitting on the sidelines with...
Chris Paul did not play for the Clippers on Tuesday night in Houston. The Clippers still won.
This bears repeating.
For a second consecutive night, Paul spent the game on the bench because of a bruised right kneecap. But his team didn't miss a beat, pulling away from the Houston Rockets with a big third quarter in a 117-109 win at Toyota Center.
Unbelievable, right? In truth...
CBSSports.com: Chris Paul is held as the gold standard in this league when it comes to the point guard position. His work ethic, skill, the way he’s so proficient at everything. But even then, I really believe Kyrie has a chance to be the best point guard in the league in the next, really, four to five years. Do you agree?
Byron Scott: I think it is. I think one thing that he...
The Los Angeles Clippers had to do battle without their star point guard. Chris Paul sat out last night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a bruised right knee cap. The injury was suffered toward the end of Saturday's game. He had been listed as day-to-day leading up to last night's contest, but he was not able to go.According to Arash Markazi of ESPN Los...
Chris Paul will miss his second game tonight, according to Houston Rockets beat writer Jonathan Feigen on Twitter.
Paul missed Monday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies after banging knees with J.J. Redick over the weekend.
The Clips play the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday, so CP3 owners will have to hope he's back in time for them.
The Clippers will once again...
Last night Chris Paul sat out with a swollen knee and will probably miss tonight game, as well. If you’re interested please feel to grab Eric Bledsoe as a streamer everywhere. All he did last night in Paul’s stead was drop 14/3/4 with 2 steals in 28 minutes as the Clips blew out Memphis. Assuming the game is more competitive tonight I’d expect Eric to be closer to 35 minutes...
Chris Paul must have taken Vinny Del Negro’s place as head coach during the game.
HOUSTON -- While Chris Paul is unquestionably an MVP candidate, Los Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford continues to state his case for an All-Star Game selection despite not having started one game this season. The Clippers performed exceptionally without Paul for a second consecutive game, taking their cue from Crawford en route to a 117-109 victory over the Houston Rockets...
HOUSTON -- While Chris Paul is unquestionably an MVP candidate, the Los Angeles Clippers performed exceptionally without him for a second consecutive night, rolling past the Houston Rockets 117-109 Tuesday at Toyota Center. Reserve guard Jamal Crawford poured in 30 points in just 28 minutes as the Clippers (30-9) matched the Western Conference-leading Oklahoma City Thunder in victories...
Having passed a pair of difficult road tests, the Los Angeles Clippers haven't missed a beat without their All-Star point guard.
The Clippers might have to try for their third straight win without Chris Paul on Thursday night when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves, who have lost five of six without star Kevin Love.
After missing the past two games with a bruised right kneecap...
MEMPHIS – The last time the Los Angeles Clippers were seen in the FedExForum, they broke hearts last April by winning the seventh game of a Western Conference first-round playoff series over the Memphis Grizzlies. The Griz ran out of gas in that game. On Monday, though, in the same place against the same team, the Grizzlies were merely dead on arrival in their worst home performance...
Matt Barnes may be coming off the bench for the Los Angeles Clippers, but he's posting big numbers.
In Monday night's 99-73 win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Barnes led the Clips with 16 points (6-11 FG and 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and two three-pointers.
Barnes has been filling up box scores all season; he's averaging 11 points, 5.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists...

The matchup between two of the best teams in the West wasn't close much of the way. While Paul watched from the bench, the Grizzlies were without their leading...
I love jock fashion. Today’s athletes aren’t afraid to express themselves via fashion. Some days that works out really well and other times, it gives us great giggles! Let’s take a look at some of my favorite ensembles from last week. Thunder star Russell Westbrook was giving his best Martin Lawrence “You so Crazy” look, [...]
Eric Bledsoe posted another great line in fill-in duty for Chris Paul Tuesday night in the Clippers' 117-109 win against the Houston Rockets.
Bledsoe scored 19 points, knocked down a three, grabbed seven rebounds, dished five assists and swiped two balls. He shot 7-of-12 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. He's deserving of an add while CP3 sits with a...
