Paul appeared to injure his hamstring during the final minute of the Rockets’ 94-98 Game 5 win over the Warriors on Thursday.
Later, as he limped out of the arena, Paul told ESPN’s Marc Spears that he would play in Game 6.
The Rockets, however, decided that Paul was in no condition to suit up after re-evaluating his hamstring on Friday.
