Chris Paul to Return Soon

by March 18, 2010

Darren Collison is probably not too thrilled with this news: CP3 is inching closer and closer to his return, as the Times Picayune reports: “After getting medically cleared to begin running last week, New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul is now cutting and moving lateral during his pregame workouts. Though there is no set target date on his return, Paul said he is getting closer toward returning to the lineup after requiring knee surgery on Feb. 4. Paul could return this Saturday against Utah or on Monday night at home against the Dallas Mavericks. ‘It’s amazing just weeks ago, I was like will I ever get back,’ Paul said. ‘But now to be almost there gives me a lot of hope and something to be excited about. I’m moving pretty good right now, but I still have a little ways to go.’’’
