Chris Paul finished Sunday's game with 18 points, 11 assists, two rebounds, one steal, two 3-pointers and a season-high-tying five turnovers.
Doc Rivers has already started doling out precautionary rest days to his core players this season, including Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick, but so far CP3 hasn't been among them. The Clippers only play twice this week (Wednesday and Saturday), and their next back-to-back set is in late December, so there's no reason to expect a DNP-CD in the near future. Dec 5 - 12:22 AM

Chris Paul hit 5-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 16 points, six rebounds, nine assists and a steal in just 25 minutes of Thursday's blowout win over the Cavaliers.

CP3 would have had a much bigger line, but the Clippers pretty much put this game away in the third quarter. Hopefully the Pelicans put up a better fight on Friday and keep Paul on the court for more minutes than the Cavs did. DeAndre Jordan also saw limited minutes due to the score and had nine points, 15 boards and a block.
Dec 1 - 11:11 PM

Chris Paul hit a 3-pointer that sent this game to overtime and finished with 26 points, 10 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, a block and four 3-pointers on 11-of-26 shooting in 45 minutes of a double-OT loss to the Nets.

CP3 did it all tonight and committed just four turnovers, which is a low number considering his minutes and assists. While he's flirted with triple-doubles several times this season, this was the first time he's attained one.
Nov 29 - 11:06 PM

Chris Paul's recent turnover woes continued on Sunday with four turnovers to go along with 13 points (3-of-11 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

CP3 frequently contends for the best assist-to-turnover ratio in the league, but over his past five games he's averaging an atypical 3.4 miscues. He's too good to make this many errors for long, so it's nothing for 9-cat owners to fret about.
Nov 27 - 8:41 PM

Chris Paul handed out a season-high 15 assists on Friday, adding eight points, three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

It wasn't all good news for CP3 tonight, as he shot just 2-of-9 from the field while committing an uncharacteristic five turnovers in 33 minutes. Paul is so unselfish that his shot attempts (12.2) and scoring (18.4 ppg) have both dipped this season, but that hasn't prevented him from piling up elite value.
Nov 25 - 10:08 PM

Chris Paul racked up 18 points, four assists, three rebounds, two 3-pointers and a game-high four steals in just 26 minutes vs. Dallas on Wednesday.

The Clippers lead the league in steals per defensive play at 8.8 percent, and it all starts with the sticky fingers of CP3. He's been a top-three fantasy value in both 8-cat and 9-cat leagues all season despite playing just 30.9 minutes per game, the lowest of any top-20 player. Frequent blowouts have kept his playing time down, which should pay dividends later in the season.
Nov 24 - 12:42 AM

Chris Paul scored 26 points with 12 assists in Monday's 123-115 win over the Raptors.

This was CP3's fifth double-double of the season and the win improves the Clippers to 13-2 on the season. Paul added three rebounds, two steals, three treys and four turnovers, shooting 8-of-14 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line. Paul has been a top-3 asset in standard leagues and it sounds like his minor shoulder tweak is behind him.
Nov 22 - 1:19 AM

Chris Paul made 2-of-10 from the field for 11 points against the Kings on Friday, adding nine rebounds, 12 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He had his shoulder in a wrap earlier this week and has struggled from the field in his last two games, making just 3-of-11 on Wednesday. Paul didn't sound concerned about it before the game and there is nothing to suggest he's dealing with anything besides just a two-game sample. He gets a home game against the Bulls on Saturday to show off his LASIK-improved game.
Nov 19 - 3:24 AM

Chris Paul (shoulder) will play against the Kings on Friday.

He had his shoulder in a wrap on Wednesday night and he had one of his worst games of the season. The Clippers are on the front end of a back-to-back tonight and also start a three-game run in four nights. CP3 gets a better matchup tonight and should have plenty of success.
Nov 18 - 4:10 PM

Over the summer, Chris Paul had sports hernia surgery.

In a three-week span, CP3 had sports hernia surgery, a procedure on his season-ending hand injury and also LASIK surgery for his vision. Interestingly, Paul was memorizing the eye charts at the practice facility to convince eye doctors he didn't need corrective surgery. The procedures seem to be working with CP3 having his best shooting numbers of his career.
Nov 17 - 4:53 PM

Chris Paul had a slow scoring night vs. the Grizzlies, chipping in nine points on 3-of-11 shooting, but he added six assists, five steals and two rebounds.

CP3 also hit a 3-pointer and he turned the ball over just twice in 34 minutes. He came into this game as a top-three roto value thanks to incredible efficiency, and as long as he stays healthy he'll be a draft-day steal for most owners.
Nov 17 - 1:44 AM

Chris Paul revealed he had LASIK eye surgery over the summer.

He's having a career season so far with a career-high 65.3 true shooting percentage and a career-low 1.7 turnovers per game. The Clippers are completely crushing teams this year on their way to a 10-1 record and the top net rating in the NBA. Paul's LASIK surgery seems to be going well.
Nov 16 - 2:27 PM

Chris Paul scored 21 points with nine assists, four rebounds, five steals, four triples and one turnover in a 127-95 blowout win over the Nets on Monday.

He needed just 25 minutes to post this absurd line, shooting 8-of-11 from the field and 1-of-1 from the line. The Clippers raced out to a 39-14 lead in the first quarter, so CP3 was able to get some quality rest down the stretch. It's early, but he's been a top-3 play in standard leagues this season.
Nov 15 - 12:48 AM

Chris Paul was in control during a 110-108 win over the Thunder on Friday, scoring 17 points with six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and no turnovers.

MVP candidate? The Clippers have a league-best 8-1 record and it's mostly because of CP3. In his last three games, Paul has 25 assists to go with just one turnover. On the defensive side, the Clippers are just locking teams down with a league-best defensive rating with a middle-of-the-pack pace. CP3 has fittingly been the No. 3 player in standard leagues so far.
Nov 12 - 2:03 AM

Chris Paul scored 24 points with eight assists, six rebounds, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 25 minutes in a blowout 114-82 win over the Pistons on Monday.

His efficiency was unreal, as he hit 8-of-10 field goals, 3-of-4 free throws and all five of his triples with zero turnovers. He’s been a top-5 play in standard leagues and is averaging 19.8 points, 9.2 assists, 6.8 rebounds, 3.6 steals and 2.0 treys over his last five games. He's still got it.
