Chris Paul scored 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting Saturday, to go with eight rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers, three steals and two turnovers in 33 minutes.
Chris Paul ran the offense to perfection and shut down his man on the other end of the floor, so par for the course for CP3. He also became just the fourth player in NBA history to amass 8,000 assists and 2,000 steals, joining the likes of Jason Kidd, John Stockton and Gary Payton. Mar 17 - 9:49 PM

Chris Paul had 11 points, four rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes vs. the Clippers, despite shooting 3-of-13 from the field and 0-of-6 from downtown.

CP3 recently appeared on the injury report with a sore left knee, but he was good to go after getting the day off practice Wednesday. He didn't have his best game tonight but fantasy owners shouldn't be concerned, especially since Mike D'Antoni reiterated his team's desire for the top seed in the West. "[Rockets players] would like for these [regular season] games to get over," D'Antoni said. "[But] they are professional enough to know that our short-term goal is we want to get the No. 1 seed." Game on.

Updating a previous report, Chris Paul (left knee soreness) will play on Thursday against the Clippers.

CP3 will receive a veteran's day off from Wednesday's practice, but he'll be out there on Thursday night for a matchup against his former team. Perhaps it was a clerical error that he was added to the initial injury report.
Mar 14 - 12:30 PM

Chris Paul (left knee soreness) is questionable to play Thursday vs. the Clippers.

CP3 missed time with a left knee issue earlier in the year, so if there's any hint that he's not 100% after shootaround on Thursday, the Rockets may want to play it safe and keep him out despite him saying he's fine. James Harden would shift back to the one with Eric Gordon sliding back into the starting five if Paul sits, and Gerald Green could pick up some extra minutes. Stay tuned.
Mar 14 - 12:04 PM

Chris Paul scored 14 points with three rebounds, three assists, three steals and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

Kyle Lowry dominated this matchup on both ends, especially in the early going. Paul also had a rare double-digit dime game in 2018 on Wednesday, but his three dimes tonight are his fewest since Feb. 1. Paul almost never goes into a slump, so expect a big game for him vs. Dallas on Sunday.
Mar 9 - 9:58 PM

Chris Paul scored 16 points with five rebounds, 11 assists and one 3-pointer against the Bucks on Wednesday.

Somewhat shockingly, this was CP3's first double-digit dime game since Feb. 3, but he's still been able to turn in seven per game in that span. His scoring and rebounding are still up from last year, and his fantasy owners can't complain with his top-eight value per game in nine-category leagues.
Mar 7 - 11:00 PM

Chris Paul hit 7-of-14 shots, 5-of-6 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws for 25 points, four rebounds, five assists and three steals in Tuesday's 122-112 win over the Thunder.

Unlike Kyrie Irving, CP3 is playing through his aged knees and killing it. He was much more efficient than Russell Westbrook tonight and was partly responsible for many of Westbrook's nine turnovers. The Rockets have it on cruise control, winning 16 straight games, with their last six coming against playoff teams. As of now, the Rockets look like the favorites to win it all this year.
Mar 6 - 11:22 PM

The Rockets finished a flawless February with a 105-92 road win on Wednesday, as Chris Paul chipped in eight points, eight assists, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

That improves Houston's record to 48-13, and they'll need just 11 wins in their next 21 games to pass the 1993-94 Rockets for the best record in franchise history. Paul continues to fill up the stat sheet nightly, which has taken the sting out of his minor shooting slump -- he's a combined 19-of-50 from the field (38.0%) since the All-Star break. Next on the schedule is a home game vs. Kyrie Irving and the Celtics on Saturday.
Mar 1 - 1:48 AM

Chris Paul hit 5-of-13 shots, a 3-pointer and 4-of-4 free throws for 15 points, six rebounds, seven assists, three steals and just two turnovers in 34 minutes of Monday's win over the Jazz.

Go ahead and get ready to fire up CP3 on Wednesday in all formats, as he's got a revenge game coming against the Clippers that night.
Feb 26 - 11:53 PM

Chris Paul scored 19 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

He did lose some time in the fourth due to a hand injury, but the team doesn't sound concerned. Coach Mike D'Antoni said he could've put CP3 back in the game and Paul himself said he was fine. "Yeah, I'm good," Paul said. While he didn't make the All-Star Team, Paul is playing some of his best ball as the Rockets are knocking on the door for the top seed.
Feb 14 - 11:17 PM

Chris Paul scored 13 points vs. the Wolves on Tuesday, adding eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 34 minutes.

The Rockets won their ninth straight game tonight and were dominant in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Wolves 42-38. They also outscored the Wolves by 48 points from the 3-point line. The Rockets play the Kings on Wednesday on the second night of a back-to-back, and while there's no indication that Houston will rest anyone, it doesn't hurt to double check CP3's status just in case because he has been banged up quite a bit this season.
Feb 13 - 10:52 PM

Chris Paul was in control during Sunday's win vs. Dallas, scoring 25 points with nine assists, eight rebounds, three steals and a pair of 3-pointers.

Paul made 9-of-15 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with just two turnovers in 35 minutes tonight, helping Houston earn their eighth consecutive victory. They've also won 12 of their past 13 games, and they now sit just 0.5 games behind the No. 1 seed Warriors, which should shield CP3 from precautionary rest days down the stretch. His fantasy owners couldn't ask for more.
Feb 11 - 10:22 PM

Chris Paul double-doubled during Saturday's easy win in Cleveland, scoring 22 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with 11 assists, six 3-pointers and one steal over 27 minutes.

CP3 nailed his first three buckets, all triples, and as an added bonus for 9-cat owners he didn't commit a single turnover while he was out there; so, par for the course for one of the best point guards in the league. He got whatever he wanted all night long, essentially taking turns with James Harden dissecting Isaiah Thomas on the offensive end, and the groin was a complete non-issue.
Feb 3 - 11:09 PM

Chris Paul (groin) will start against the Cavs on Saturday.

There was never really a doubt despite the probable tag. Paul should have a field day against Isaiah Thomas tonight.
Feb 3 - 8:25 PM

Chris Paul (groin) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Cleveland.

Paul did not play Tuesday, but returned from a one-game absence on Thursday and finished with 10 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and three turnovers in 30 minutes. Coach Mike D'Antoni said he wanted to keep CP3 around 30 minutes on Thursday. We'll wait to see if that is the plan for Saturday as well. D'Antoni will speak to the media about 90 minutes prior to tip-off on Saturday evening.
