Rivers: Chris Paul Close To Clippers Return

share on:

According to LA Clippers coach, Chris Paul could return to the fold in the game against Sacramento Kings.

Rivers also stated the guard participated in the shootaround prior to the 115-106 win over the Memphis Grizzlies.

The Clippers have had to play the last eight games without Paul, due to a strained left hamstring.

“Chris looked great today, had a full workout, played up and down,” Rivers said before the game. “He looked terrific. We’ll wait to see how he feels tomorrow. Obviously, again, if it was a playoff game, Chris would be playing. But we just want to make sure he doesn’t have any soreness.

“If he doesn’t, then he’s cleared.”

The Clippers have won back-to-back games after previously dropping six in a row.

Despite Rivers’ assurances, Paul is taking his recovery day-by-day.

“I don’t know. I just keep saying, ‘Big picture,'” Paul said before Wednesday’s game. “But the minute I feel like I can play, I’m going to play.”

Paul is averaging 17.7 points, 9.5 assists and 5.3 rebounds this season.
