Chris Paul finished with 19 points, seven assists, rebounds and a blocked shot over 35 minutes in Monday's game against the Clippers, his first game against his former team.
CP3 was given a hearty ovation from the home crowd before the game, and then the Clips spoiled the homecoming with a 113-102 victory. He finished 8-of-17 from the field, including 3-of-10 from behind the 3-point line, while turning it over just once. He has picked up the pace with James Harden (hamstring) on the mend, posting at least six or more rebounds and six or more assists in each of his seven games in January while averaging 24.8 points per game over the past six contests.

Chris Paul went for 25 points with eight rebounds, six assists andtwo blocked shots over 27 minutes in Friday's 112-95 win at Phoenix.

CP3 hit 9-of-18 from the field, including 2-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. He has stepped up his game with James Harden (hamstring) on the mend, averaging 28.7 points, 8.7 assists, 7.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.0 blocked shots per game over the past three outings. He is also working on a 19-game streak with at least one 3-pointer dating back to Nov. 25.
Jan 13 - 1:53 AM

Chris Paul poured in a season-high 37 points on Wednesday, adding 11 assists and seven rebounds in a convincing 121-112 win vs. the Blazers.

CP3 even rubbed in the victory with an extraneous layup at the buzzer, which led to a brief verbal spat with Damian Lillard. Paul controlled the game late and he was extra aggressive tonight, finishing 13-of-29 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line, with three 3-pointers and three steals. Expect more gaudy lines from CP3 until James Harden returns from his hamstring injury.
Jan 11 - 12:41 AM

Chris Paul scored 16 points with seven rebounds, 13 assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes during a 108-101 loss to the Pistons on Saturday.

Chris Paul finally knows what it feels like two lose two starts within three days of each other in a Rocket uniform. He should have at least one more week to feast without James Harden (hamstring) with three games coming up starting in Chicago on Monday.
Jan 6 - 11:04 PM

Chris Paul led the Rockets to an easy win vs. Orlando on Wednesday, posting eight points, 13 assists, seven rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

James Harden (strained hamstring) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, so it will be CP3 and Eric Gordon running the show to open 2018. "It’s an opportunity for other people to play," said coach Mike D'Antoni. "[Chris Paul] will still lead the charge. We have to just make the best of a bad situation." He shot just 3-of-13 from the field tonight, but should revert to form vs. the Warriors on Thursday.
Jan 3 - 10:37 PM

The Rockets snapped their five-game losing streak in dramatic fashion on Sunday, with Chris Paul posting 28 points, 10 assists and six rebounds in the double-overtime win.

CP3 took over the Rockets' offense in the OT periods with James Harden (leg) unavailable, scoring a handful of clutch buckets to keep the pesky Lakers at bay. He shot just 8-of-20 from the field, but connected on three 3-pointer while going 9-of-9 at the free throw line. He also committed a mere two turnovers in 42 minutes, which is one of the reasons 9-cat owners love him.

Chris Paul hit just 3-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, six assists and two steals in 26 minutes in his return to action from a groin injury on Friday.

Paul missed three games with the injury and the Rockets lost their fifth straight game tonight. Getting CP3 back should right the ship and stop the "sky is falling" mentality taking place in Houston right now. Paul wasn't sharp in this one, but he'll be fine and owners need to get him back into lineups immediately.

Chris Paul (groin) will play on Friday night against the Wizards and is expected to play around 25 minutes.

He was expected to play today or Sunday, so Paul must be feeling well. Perhaps the Rockets folding last night gave him a a little extra motivation. The last time he returned from injury, Paul did have about three games with a minutes limit, but this injury isn't as bad as his knee problem. With him back, Eric Gordon will take a hit while Briante Weber is probably out of the rotation again.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: This puts Westbrook head and shoulders above Harden as the top overall play. Paul is a risky DFS option in his first game back - he's not cheap and is expected to be limited to about 25 minutes - so the upside just isn't there. Harden is still definitely in play, but he's more of a pivot off Westbrook at this point. Eric Gordon also suffers as a result. With Ryan Anderson starting at center, he's a much nicer mid-range target.

Chris Paul (adductor) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game vs. Washington.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said on Thursday that Paul would "probably" make his return on either Friday or Sunday. It was assumed that Sunday was the more likely date, but now it appears CP3 could suit up on Friday night. The Rockets are playing on the back end of a back-to-back and have lost four straight games, so they would obviously love to have Paul back in the lineup. This is shaping up as a game-time decision. Check back later this evening.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 11:50:00 AM

Chris Paul (adductor), who will not play on Thursday vs. Boston, could play as soon as Friday vs. Washington.

If CP3 remains sidelined on Friday, then Sunday vs. the Lakers is "probable," per head coach Mike D'Antoni. Paul has played just 16 of 33 possible games all season and has been out for over a week, so the short-handed Rockets would certainly welcome a quicker than expected return. When Paul is able to get back out there, Eric Gordon will return to the bench.

Chris Paul (adductor) is listed as out for Thursday's game vs. Boston.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said earlier this week that Paul wouldn't play in both games of the back-to-back set, so it's still possible that CP3 returns on Friday vs. the Wizards. With Paul out Thursday, James Harden will be as busy as ever, Eric Gordon will start and play heavy minutes and Briante Weber could see a handful of minutes off the bench after averaging 17.0 minutes in his last two games.

Chris Paul (adductor) will not play vs. the Thunder on Monday.

CP3 got in a vigorous warmup prior to the Christmas Day game, but ultimately the Rockets opted to play it safe. Mike D'Antoni recently said Paul is "not too far away," but added that CP3 won't play in both of the Rockets' back-to-back games on Thursday (vs. the Celtics) and Friday (vs. the Wizards). Eric Gordon will continue to log heavy minutes as a starter in his absence.

Chris Paul (groin) is doubtful to play on Christmas Day in Oklahoma City, but coach Mike D'Antoni said he's "not too far away."

Groin injuries can be tricky, and the doubtful tag suggests that the Rockets are leaning towards playing it safe with their 32-year-old point guard, but owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround. If CP3 is forced to spend his second straight game on the sidelines, Eric Gordon would have another opportunity to start and James Harden would continue to be ridiculous.

Chris Paul (groin) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

Getting ruled out a day early isn't a great sign, but coach Mike D'Antoni said CP3 is day-to-day. The Rockets have a couple days off after that game, so hopefully CP3 will be back for Christmas day vs. the Thunder. With Paul out, James Harden will soak up even more usage and Eric Gordon should see a bump in touches as well.

Chris Paul (groin) is dealing with a sore right adductor.

The adductor injuries are really piling up this year with Devin Booker and Anthony Davis having some notable problems there. Paul really didn't look right for most of the game and he eventually committed a foul in the second half to get himself out of the game. For now, consider CP3 questionable for Friday night.
