The latest Chris Paul injury update comes as the Suns prepare for their next game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Paul has yet to miss a game this season, but his absence is a big blow to the team. Without him, the Suns’ position as the number one team in the Western Conference is on the line. As the favorite to win the title this season, their position has been put in jeopardy.
While it’s still unclear when Chris Paul will be back, the Houston Rockets are still preparing for the playoffs without their star guard. During the first half, Paul pulled up after grabbing a loose ball and grabbing his hamstring. The injury is a Grade-2 hamstring strain, and the Houston Rockets haven’t given a timeline for his return. It’s not clear what the repercussions of Paul’s injury will be, but there’s an ongoing rumor that Paul might miss more than three weeks.
The latest update on Chris Paul’s hamstring injury came as he was cut near midcourt and grabbed the back of his leg. During the play, Miami’s Derrick Jones Jr. knocked the ball away, but Paul grabbed his leg and went straight to the Houston locker room. He didn’t return. In fact, he was dressed and gone before the locker room even opened.
The Houston Rockets are optimistic that Chris Paul will only miss two to three weeks, but the team will have to wait until the team’s return from their game with the Golden State Warriors before determining how long Chris will be out. After all, this isn’t the first time Chris Paul has been injured this season. The team won’t make the playoffs without him and the rest of their stars are counting on him to be back soon.
His thumb injury
Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul has been out of action for several weeks with a thumb injury. He suffered the injury during a game against the Houston Rockets. After getting two technical fouls, Chris Paul was ejected from the game. The Phoenix Suns are now waiting to see how Paul will be affected by his thumb injury. The injury is likely to affect his playing time in the playoffs. However, this injury may not have been an immediate concern if Paul is to play.
The first update on the thumb injury of Chris Paul came on Feb. 20. The team announced a six-to-eight-week timetable. On that day, the earliest Paul could return was April 3. However, Jets sources wouldn’t rule out a late season return. If Paul’s return occurs before the playoffs, the team would be able to focus on a postseason run. That could make the Suns more playoff-ready.
In the meantime, the Suns have a nine-game lead over Memphis and are expected to host the first round of the playoffs with Chris Paul back. As for Paul’s status in the playoffs, he’ll be out six to eight weeks. Even if he is out of action, the Suns’ playoff hopes remain strong. The Suns have home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. The NBA’s best team is one win away from a title.
Chris Paul limped slowly out of the Footprint Center on Sunday after sustaining a left quadriceps injury in the final game of the regular season. He declined to comment, but it’s clear that the NBA star is in pain. This isn’t the first time that the point guard has sustained a quad injury. In the finals of the 2014 Western Conference finals, Paul also limped out of a game with a finger injury, and has had several similar injuries.
In Game 7, Chris Paul injured his left quadriceps, which prevented him from scoring against the Dallas Mavericks.

Despite his limited scoring ability, Paul was able to finish the game with 10 points and four assists in 31 minutes against Luka Doncic.
Despite the seemingly seriousness of Chris Paul’s quad injury, he managed to finish the game with 10 points and four assists. Despite being out of the lineup for most of the series, he didn’t score a field goal until the third quarter of Game 7. The fact that he played through his left quad injury is remarkable considering that he helped lead the Suns to an NBA Finals appearance in 2023.
His hamstring injury in 2018
Houston Rockets center Chris Paul is sidelined for Game 6 on Saturday after suffering a hamstring injury. Paul had recently signed a four-year, $159.7 million contract with the team. Though his recent shooting struggles have been troubling, he averaged 15.6 points, 8.0 assists, and 2.1 steals per game before the injury. However, the Rockets have turned their season around with Chris Paul’s absence, having won five straight games.
This year’s hamstring injury is the fifth that Paul has suffered during his 13-year NBA career. Paul suffered a similar ailment against the Rockets in the 2015 Western Conference Semifinals. He returned the next season and helped the Lakers reach the Western Conference Finals. But the Rockets lost in seven games, and Paul broke his hand in the first round of the playoffs last year. As of Wednesday, Paul had yet another hamstring injury in 2018.
The Rockets are cautiously optimistic about Chris Paul’s recovery. Despite the hamstring injury, Mike D’Antoni has reportedly asked Paul to undergo MRIs. The MRIs confirmed that the veteran has a Grade-2 hamstring strain. While there are no specific timelines for Chris Paul’s return, he will undergo another evaluation in two weeks. The injury is not particularly serious, but it’s not likely to impede the Rockets’ playoff plans.
His left quadriceps injury in 2014
After suffering a hamstring strain in the second round of the NBA playoffs, Chris Paul missed the next 17 games for the Rockets. In the playoffs, he looked limited and his team’s fortunes suffered.

The Clippers also missed Blake Griffin for Game 7, but Paul returned to the series and helped the team win the series.
The severity of Chris Paul’s left quadriceps strain is not known, and he could return to the playoffs in Game 7. In addition to the hamstring strain, Chris had injuries in his right hamstring, and his knee and right hand both needed treatment. In addition to that, he suffered a broken hand in the playoffs in 2016 while trying to snag a loose ball from Blazers guard Gerald Henderson. He missed the final two games of the series, and he may not be able to play in the playoffs in Game 7.
His thumb injury in 2015
The NBA has issued a recurrence notice for Chris Paul’s thumb injury that he suffered in 2015. The injured player will miss between six and eight weeks and will need surgery. In 2015, Paul tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his thumb during a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. A torn ligament is different than a sprained one, and an MRI revealed that Chris Paul had torn the ulnar collateral ligament. The NBA hasn’t released a recurrence timeline, but it is possible that Chris Paul could be out for six to eight weeks.
While it’s not the most serious injury, it is one of the most disappointing, and potentially damaging, for the Phoenix Suns. Chris Paul has already exceeded expectations and is helping the Phoenix Suns erase a toxic culture that was prevalent in the city for years. But, the thumb injury is a serious blow to his team, and his absence would put the entire regular season and playoffs in jeopardy.
Chris Paul’s thumb injury in 2015 was more serious than most people realize. A season later, the injury would require surgery, and he may need months or even years to recover. But Chris Paul hasn’t let his thumb stop him from playing. He’s a tough player, and the thumb injury could be the cause of his prolonged absence. In 2015, he averaged 14.9 points and 10.7 assists in 33 games for the Suns. However, it has also led to a series of setbacks.
