Chris Paul Vows to Play Through ‘Tight’ Hamstring

by November 29, 2013

After straining his right hamstring against the New York Knicks on Wednesday night, Chris Paul said that it won’t keep him out of game action. Per the LA Times: “After the game Wednesday night, Paul said his hamstring was a ‘little tight.’ … ‘But I’ll be all right,’ Paul said. ‘I’ll be ready Friday. I promise you. I’m OK’ There was no update on Paul’s injury because the Clippers didn’t practice Thursday, having been given Thanksgiving Day off before they left that night for Sacramento. ‘Of course, he told me twice already that he’ll be ready for Friday,’ Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said about Paul after the game Wednesday. ‘That doesn’t mean it’s true. That’s just want he said.’ If Paul can’t play, Darren Collison will be the starting point guard for the Clippers.”
