Sunday Night, ESPN reported that Phoenix Suns star guard Chris Paul’s hand injury will keep him out of action for at least six weeks. The injury is described as an avulsion fracture in his right thumb. With the NBA Playoffs beginning on April 16th, the timeline would be close to Paul returning to action. 

On Saturday Paul told media in Cleveland at the All-Star game in Cleveland, “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.
