Chris Paul was in mid-season form against the Nuggets on Friday during a 103-96 win, scoring 12 points with five rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes.
He's still really good and his style of play will make him one of the best for quite some time. CP3 is certainly worthy of consideration at No. 5 in standard drafts, especially after he was No. 1 after the break last year. Oct 3 - 1:27 AM

Chris Paul called the Clippers roster "easily probably the deepest team that I've been a part of."

The Clippers are at least two deep at every position, and Doc Rivers will have some interesting decisions to make when it comes to deploying playing time this season. While CP3 isn't suddenly going to lose minutes to Austin Rivers, Paul is likely to average less than the 35-minute mark he posted last season with Pablo Prigioni, Paul Pierce, Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford all on the roster.

Chris Paul is expected to be in Vegas for Team USA's camp.

The point guard position is loaded for Team USA, but Paul shouldn't have any problems making the final roster for the 2016 Rio Olympics. The Clippers miraculously brought back DeAndre Jordan in free agency this summer and added some interesting pieces in Josh Smith and Paul Pierce, so it will be interesting to see if they will take a step forward next season. Paul averaged 19.1 points, 10.2 assists, 4.6 boards, 1.9 steals and 1.7 3-pointers and didn't miss a single game last season, so expect him to be an elite asset in fantasy leagues again next season.

Chris Paul will be the Team World captain for the NBA's Africa game on Aug. 1.

The other players on the Team World roster are: Bradley Beal, Kenneth Faried, Marc Gasol, Pau Gasol, Jeff Green, Evan Turner, Trey Burke and Nikola Vucevic. The roster is subject to change, of course. As for Paul, this will be the first chance we get to see him in the national spotlight since he tweeted "🍌🚤" on NBA emoji day.

Chris Paul called DeAndre Jordan his "big little brother" and welcomed him back to the Clippers.

"We talk a lot more than people ever realize. But it doesn't matter [what people say]. The only thing that matters is that he's back," Paul said. Hopefully, this is now all water under the bridge for the Clippers.

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated posed an interesting scenario in one of his recent columns, suggesting that the Clippers might consider dealing Chris Paul after losing DeAndre Jordan to Dallas via free agency.

First and foremost, Mannix states right off the bat that this isn't even a rumor yet, so this "report/rumor" should be viewed with some major skepticism. That being said, Mannix speculates that the only person out there with a value high enough to entice an offer of dealing one of the leagues top-3 point guards in CP3 would be Kyrie Irving. We'll let you know if this rumor gains any traction, but right now, this is so far off from being a reality it’s not really even worth discussing.

Chris Paul has been named to the All-NBA Second Team.

Joining him are Russell Westbrook, LaMarcus Aldridge, Pau Gasol and DeMarcus Cousins. All these guys had phenomenal seasons and are well worth the Second Team distinction. Westbrook led the league in triple-doubles (11) despite only suiting up for 67 games, and he finished fourth in the MVP voting. Gasol was the league-leader in double-doubles with 54, and DeMarcus Cousins was right behind him (third in the league) with 47 double-doubles. Aldridge had another quality season averaging 23.4 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.0 block per game, and it'll be interesting to see if he decides to leave Portland as a free agent this offseason.

Chris Paul double-doubled with 26 points and 10 assists during the Clippers' crushing Game 7 defeat, adding five rebounds, four assists and four turnovers in 45 minutes.

It was the most minutes CP3 had played in a game all season, but the Clippers were doomed by 18 turnovers, 32 personal fouls and sketchy fastbreak defense. Paul may have deferred too often offensively but he still dominated Jason Terry and the Rockets in Games 5-7, averaging 26.3 points and 10.3 assists, and he's currently the postseason assist leader at 8.8 per game. The eight-time All-Star will go back to the drawing board next season, as he tries to make his first ever Conference Finals appearances. "I got to get better I’ll tell you that much. It starts with me," Paul said after the loss. "Getting close ain't good enough."

Chris Paul scored a game-high 31 points during a meltdown 119-107 loss to the Rockets on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, 11 assists, two turnovers and one 3-pointer.

He played 41 minutes, but Paul just couldn't get it going late. As you've probably heard 100 times, CP3 has never made it to a conference finals and now that might continue to be the case with Game 7 in Houston on Sunday. The Clippers were up 89-70 with 14:25 remaining in the game, but were outscored 40-15 in the fourth quarter. Paul was shut down by Jason Terry late in the game, which pretty much sums it up. He also had a minor left wrist injury, but he'll be fine.

Chris Paul (hamstring) is no longer with a minutes restriction.

Paul was able to log 35 minutes of action during Game 5's loss to the Rockets on Tuesday, so he should be right around that number for tonight's Game 6 in Los Angeles. With a victory tonight, the Clippers could advance to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history.
May 14 - 2:54 PM

Chris Paul said that his strained left hamstring is nearly 100 percent.

This is excellent news for the Clippers' championship odds, and it sounds like the past two games with a limited workload has really helped him in the recovery process. Doc Rivers said that while CP3 will still likely be with some sort of minutes restriction for Tuesday's Game 5 in Houston, he could play more minutes than he has in the past two games. A Game 5 victory would put the Clippers in the Western Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history.
May 12 - 2:25 PM

Chris Paul (hamstring) had 15 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and only one turnover in 26 minutes during Sunday's Game 4 win vs. the Rockets.

CP3's workload was eased by the Rockets' decision to foul DeAndre Jordan throughout the first half, but the Clippers aren't complaining. "You know [the hamstring injury] will be with him through the playoffs," Doc Rivers said before the game. "We’re going to have to monitor this throughout. It’s never going to go away ... We have to feel careful." His limited workload tonight bodes very well for his health, especially with L.A. in command of the series with a 3-1 lead.
May 10 - 11:49 PM

Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said that he and his staff have spoken about Chris Paul's (hamstring) minute's restriction, and no decision was made on a minutes increase.

He added that he anticipates he will need to monitor Paul's minutes for the remainder of the playoffs, so it sounds like the Clippers are going to try and keep Paul's minutes as low as possible. We'll let you know after the game how everything shakes out, but a lot of this will likely depend upon the score of the game and the play of Austin Rivers.
May 10 - 7:16 PM

Chris Paul (hamstring) will be in the starting lineup for Game 4 against the Rockets on Sunday as expected, and he also said that he feels much better.

"I’m cool, I’m good, I’ll be ready for tomorrow," Paul said. "There’s no speculation, probable or questionable. I’m playing tomorrow." Head coach Doc Rivers also said that Paul could get more minutes on Sunday, so we would expect him to play around 30 minutes. Austin Rivers' value obviously takes a hit with this news, while Blake Griffin will also handle the ball less on offense.

Coach Doc Rivers said Chris Paul (hamstring) could get more minutes on Sunday.

The Clippers really lucked out with Austin Rivers playing the game of his life. Doc said his son playing well was big because it allowed CP3 to play less. With two more days off and no setback, Paul should be able to hit the 30-minute plateau in Game 4, assuming Austin Rivers doesn't explode again.
