Chris Paul helped the Clippers snap a three-game losing streak with a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday, scoring 15 points with 10 assists.
He also added two boards and three steals, and he broke out of his mini-slump by shooting 6-of-11 from the field. To top off his fantastic line, Paul didn't turn the ball over once. Paul's minutes have been a little lower lately and he has played an average of 30.5 minutes over his last four games, but that number should rise now that his groin issue is a thing of the past.

Chris Paul double-doubled during the Clippers loss to the Raptors on Sunday, compiling 13 points, 11 assists, five boards, two steals, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in his 33 minutes of playing time.

Paul has been in a bit of a shooting slump over the past two games, going just 9-of-25 from the field, but he should bounce-back on Tuesday with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets. Paul has gotten off to a bit of a slow start this year, and he's currently only producing at third-round value with averages of 17.3 points, 8.0 assists, 1.4 steals (career-low) and 1.4 three-pointers per game on 44.2 percent shooting. The assists, scoring and steals should only go up as we move through the season, so there's a bit of a buy-low window here.

Chris Paul scored 11 points during a 102-91 loss to the Clippers on Friday, adding two rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

He didn't look right and maybe it was because he's coming off injury and playing in a road back-to-back. Whatever the case, CP3 should be fine as long as he's not on the injury report.

Chris Paul was outstanding against the Warriors during a 124-117 loss on Thursday, scoring 35 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

This is a tough one to lose. CP3 played through his groin injury, he lit it up with eight makes to open the game, made play after play until the fourth quarter to help the Clippers build a 23-point lead, and it still wasn't enough. Paul may be on the injury report for Friday's game against the Blazers, but his owners have to be excited about him going off tonight.
Nov 20 - 1:57 AM

Chris Paul (groin) will play against the Warriors on Thursday.

Paul did more at practice on Wednesday and this is probably the most important game of the season for the Clippers so far. Paul has played through injuries before and he's usually not limited, so he'll likely be out there for more than 30 minutes. His return likely takes away from Austin Rivers more than it does for Jamal Crawford.
Nov 19 - 8:53 PM

Chris Paul (groin) and J.J. Redick (back) will be game-time decisions for Thursday's matchup against the Warriors.

Doc Rivers is currently listing both as doubtful, but beat reporter Ben Bolch noted that based on their activity during shootaround, the pair seemed close to making a return. This could perhaps be Rivers not wanted to tip his hand as to who will start with a matchup against the defending champs, and we won't likely have official word until just before the tip. If both Paul and Redick are unavailable, Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers will be in the starting lineup, and Crawford would be worth a look in daily leagues after going off for 37 points in 40 minutes on Saturday.
Nov 19 - 3:11 PM

Chris Paul (groin) and J.J. Redick (back) are listed as doubtful to play against the Warriors on Thursday.

Paul did some work at practice on Wednesday, but the team will likely just hold him out to give him a full week to recover. It'll be Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers getting the start with Crawford having the bigger upside.
Nov 18 - 8:47 PM

Chris Paul (groin) was limited in practice on Wednesday and is unlikely to play on Thursday against the Warriors.

He is a little bit ahead of J.J. Redick (back), but the team likely wants to put CP3 out of harm's way to avoid a recurring issue. Paul would be missing his third game in a row and it would appear Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers would be getting the start.
Nov 18 - 4:37 PM

Doc Rivers said that neither Chris Paul (groin) nor J.J. Redick (back) are probable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

Not probable is an interesting distinction, but perhaps we'll have more clarity on their status following Wednesday's practice. For what it's worth, Paul has said that he's hopeful he can play, but Rivers isn't going to risk his star guard suffering a setback this early in the season. If both CP3 and Redick can't give it a go on Thursday, expect Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford to comprise Los Angeles' starting backcourt.
Nov 18 - 2:14 PM

Chris Paul (groin) is hopeful he can play in Thursday's game against Golden State.

Paul has missed the past two games with a groin injury, but he was spotted going through some pre-practice shooting drills on Tuesday and he said that his groin injury is "definitely getting better." We'll likely have another update following Tuesday's practice, but if he's again unable to play on Thursday Austin Rivers will remain in the starting five, which could translate to Stephen Curry going off for a monstrous stat line.
Nov 17 - 2:40 PM

In addition to his groin strain, Chris Paul is still being hampered by his finger injury.

Paul fractured his left (non-shooting) index figure during the preseason and has been playing through the injury since. "The finger definitely bothers him. The groin obviously bothers him," Doc Rivers said. A career 47.3 percent shooter overall and 36.3 percent from distance, Paul is shooting just 41.9 percent from the field and 28 percent from behind the 3-point line this season.
Nov 16 - 1:06 PM

Chris Paul (groin) and J.J. Redick (back) will not play on Saturday vs. the Pistons.

Head coach Doc Rivers isn't sure when he will be able to return, but we will consider him day-to-day for now. The good news is that the Clippers are off until Nov. 19 against the Warriors, so Paul should have a decent chance to return for that massive rivalry. Austin Rivers and Pablo Prigioni will both see more minutes Saturday, but Jamal Crawford will be the biggest beneficiary and the offense should run through Blake Griffin a lot more.
Nov 14 - 1:52 PM

Chris Paul (right groin) is doubtful to play against the Pistons on Saturday.

He played 82 games last season, but this will likely be his third game out of the lineup this year. Paul doesn't have too many groin problems in his injury history, so hopefully the team is just taking it easy on him so it doesn't linger. Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford equally benefit with Crawford being slightly more reliable.
Nov 13 - 5:06 PM

Chris Paul (groin) will not play against the Suns on Thursday.

He's not all the way over his groin injury and aggravated it in warmups. Paul could miss time going forward, but this injury doesn't sound serious. While Pablo Prigioni will start, fantasy owners in DFS will want to turn to Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford.
Nov 12 - 9:58 PM

Chris Paul (groin) is not a sure thing for Thursday night against the Suns.

He may have aggravated his groin injury in warmups, so we'll have an update soon. If he's out, Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers would be as must-play as it gets in DFS. We'll have an update soon.
