Chris Paul (left hamstring) is likely to suit up in Sunday's matchup vs. the Magic.
Paul will make his return after missing 17 games and he'll return to a Rockets team that is playing much better than they were when he left. In the 17 games that Paul has missed, James Harden is attempting 29.2 shots and 14.5 free throws, both of which are insane numbers. Not to mention Harden has a usage rate of 43.2 in that time span with the next player being Eric Gordon down at 24.1. Paul will clearly take some shots away from Harden but at the end of the day it's his team and it might be hard for Paul to live up to the value that he was drafted at.
