Chris Paul’s hand was in a cast Saturday
Will he, or won’t he be able to play after the NBA All-Star break is complete?
Paul didn’t give a definite answer to the question during an All-Star media availability in Cleveland, but his tone certainly wasn’t encouraging. “We’re 48-10 and if we do miss some time I know the guys are going to hold it down,” Paul said. “There’s always going to be a frustration with injury. My hand surgeon is part of my family now.”
Paul was injured during the Suns game against Houston this past Wednesday.

“I always want to play. When I felt that in my hand, I was mad for all types of reasons,” Paul said. “Obviously we’re not going to [rush it]. I’m going to try to heal as fast as physically possible. The second I’m able to play, I guarantee you I will be playing.”
Paul still hasn’t been ruled out of playing in Sunday Nights All-Star game.
