Chris Paul works out, status uncertain for Game 3 vs. Rockets

The wait will be a little longer to find out whether or not Chris Paul is going to play tomorrow. He missed the first two games of the Clippers’ second-round series against the Rockets after suffering a hamstring strain in Game 7 against the Spurs. With the series heading back to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Friday, Doc Rivers said Paul is a gametime decision.

Knowing Paul, unless he’s told in no uncertain terms by the Clippers’ medical staff that he can’t play, he’s going to give it a go. The Clippers are in great shape, winning one of two games without Paul in Houston. Even a semi-healthy version of him is an upgrade over the minutes they’ve been getting from Austin Rivers and Lester Hudson.
