Chris Paul hasn’t played since the Houston Rockets’ opening-night victory over the Golden State Warriors, and though he’s expected to return sometime this week, the team isn’t making any promises.
From the Houston Chronicle‘s Jonathan Feigen:
With the Rockets hoping to have guard Chris Paul ready to play Thursday in Phoenix, Paul ramped up his workouts on Sunday and is scheduled for intense sessions again on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Paul has been out since the Oct. 17 season opener because of a bruised left knee suffered Oct. 11 in Memphis.
After a light day on Monday with the Rockets off following the back-to-back, Paul is expected to go through a more extense workout on Tuesday and the Rockets’ practice on Wednesday. The Rockets would not decide when he will play until Thursday when they can measure how he responds to the practice sessions and the flight to Phoenix.
