  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul struggled with his shot in a 111-121 loss to the Wolves on Wednesday as he went 4-for-13 from the field to finish with 16 points.

    The poor shooting was unfortunate but the Rockets as a whole were not feeling on the offensive end. CP3 delivered in other categories though, adding five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers to the box. He's a top-20 asset while healthy, so he can get a pass for this off shooting night.

    Chris Paul stayed hot in Monday's 120-104 win over the Mavs, delivering like he did in the good old days with 17 points (5-of-12 shooting), two rebounds, 11 dimes, five triples and two steals.

    This is vintage CP3 at its finest. All he needs to do now is stay healthy and he should be good for top-20, top-15 per-game value moving forward. Plus, the extended rest over the ASB should do him wonders too.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul scored 18 points on 5-of-12 shooting (2-of-5 3PTs, 6-of-7 FTs) with 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals in Saturday's loss to the Thunder.

    Paul has been hanging around the top 20-25 for the last two weeks and owners will take that after a tumultuous season. He'll definitely be a rest candidate and injury risk, but with just a third of the season to go it's possible he can small sample-size his way to some decent attendance.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul came up clutch in the Rockets' win on Monday with 18 points on 5-of-10 shooting with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, four assists and five steals.

    Paul went past his 30-minute limit but it doesn't look like he'll be playing in any back-to-backs. He tallied four steals at half time and dropped a signature mid-range shot and a floater late in the fourth to essentially put the game away which are all positive signs for fantasy owners. He's no longer the top-20 play he was projected to be, but an early-mid round finish is well within reason if you can handle the rest days.

    Chris Paul could sit out half of the Rockets' remaining back-to-backs for the rest of the season.

    "Could be the rest of the year," said coach Mike D'Antoni. It's obviously not great news for Paul's fantasy owners but the Rockets have more important things to worry about. Houston only has four back-to-backs left this season: February 27 and 28 against the Hornets and Heat, March 10 and 11 against the Mavs and Hornets, March 19 and 20 against the Hawks and Grizzlies and April 2 and 3 against the Kings and Clippers. We'll see if the Rockets go that route in a crowded Western Conference where every win matters.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul (rest) will sit the second game of Houston's back-to-back and miss Saturday's matchup with the Jazz.

    Paul was questionable on Friday because of lower back soreness but played and was able to post a quality line, while the plan going forward is for CP3 to sit on B2Bs. James Harden's going to get crazy usage tonight while Eric Gordon and Austin Rivers will shoulder a heavier burden whenever Paul sits.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    In his third game back from a lengthy absence with a hamstring injury, Chris Paul was more himself with 20 points (8-of-13 shooting), three treys, three rebounds and six dimes in Friday's 122-136 loss to the Nuggets.

    The steals were not there tonight, but those will come back in time. His 13 shot attempts is a good sign that his confidence on the offensive end has returned. If CP3 can stay healthy, his high floor should be a big boost for fantasy owners in the playoffs as a contributor of points, dimes, steals and threes.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul is good to go for Friday’s matchup vs. the Rockets but he’s likely to miss Saturday’s game with the Jazz.

    With Paul being so banged up this season (and in general these past few years), he’s probably going to sit the second leg of this back-to-back set. Austin Rivers is the guy to step up if that’s indeed the case.

    Chris Paul (lower back soreness) will play in Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    No need to fret, friends. Paul will be active for an important clash with the Nuggets. This is what we had originally planned for, so roll him out as usual.

    Chris Paul (sore lower back) is questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    It had previously been reported that Paul would play on Friday and be uncertain for Saturday as part of the recovery plan from his hamstring injury, but this new issue casts doubt over his status for the entire weekend. Houston should handle Paul with extreme caution considering his importance to their playoff goals, so fantasy owners will just have to check back frequently for updates on CP3's condition. James Harden obviously gets a boost with Paul out while Eric Gordon, Gerald Green and Brandon Knight are secondary winners.

    Chris Paul will play in Friday's game with the Nuggets but is uncertain for Saturday's matchup with the Jazz.

    The Rockets have said that they plan to rest Paul on back-to-backs going forward, so it's probably safest to assume that CP3 will rest while his teammates take on Utah. We'd bet on Paul resting on half of Houston's upcoming back-to-backs until his minutes restriction is lifted. James Harden will get monstrous usage whenever Paul is out, while Eric Gordon, Gerald Green and Brandon Knight will all see more run.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul played 26 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans, scoring 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, nine assists and two steals.

    Paul will continue to be handled with kid gloves but it appears he's on his upward trajectory into the early rounds.

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Chris Paul will increase his minutes limit to around 30 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Paul is coming off of a pretty good game considering it was his first time playing in 17 games. With him back up to the 30 minute mark, he can be put back into your lineups and hopefully he can help his owners make that second half push they may need.

  • Box Score Breakdown: Chris Paul Returns

    Adrian and Neil break down the nine games from Sunday.  Luka puts up an impressive triple double in a loss.  Chris Paul has nice game in a return and Harden continues to ball. (01-27-2019) Follow…

  • Chris Paul - G - Houston Rockets

    Chris Paul returned from a left hamstring injury on Sunday and scored 12 points with five rebounds, six assists and three steals in a win over the Rockets.

    His minutes were limited to 25, so he had a great performance despite being on the court less than he typically would. He shot 4-of-8 from the field and made two 3-pointers as well. His return did not impact James Harden much as he still had 40 points. Plug Chris Paul back into your lineups as he should return to an early-round value once his minutes restriction is lifted.
