Suns Announce Chris Paul Is Probable to Return Against Nuggets

The Phoenix Suns have listed Chris Paul as probable to play when they face the Nuggets on the road.

If he plays on Thursday, this will be CP3’s first taste of action since fracturing his right thumb on Feb. 16 when the Suns hosted the Rockets. After being ejected in the third quarter, Paul left the game and was seen grabbing his hand as he headed to the locker room.

Shortly after he played in the All-Star Game, the Suns ruled him out and reportedly expected him to miss as many as six-eight weeks. Since CP3 went down, the Suns went 11-4. When healthy, Paul posted 14.9 points and 10.7 assists per game.

The Suns (59-14) have a chance to clinch the best record in the Western Conference and the League with a win over the Nuggets or if the Grizzlies lost to the Pacers on Thursday.
