Chris Paul injury: Point guard to miss 2nd straight game Saturday vs. Mavericks

CP3 needs to heal.

NBA: Preseason-Houston Rockets at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

According to Jonathan Feigen, guard Chris Paul is out for tomorrow night’s contest versus the Mavericks.

Originally, Paul’s injury was viewed to be an ankle injury that he suffered in Tuesday’s win against Golden State, but Feigen also reports that this injury stems from last Wednesday’s preseason game vs. the Memphis Grizzlies in a collision with Mario Chalmers.

Paul, 32, is in his 13th season in the NBA. He’s racked up some mileage and is going to be an integral part of this team all year long. To aggravate an injury now would be devastating for the team. The Rockets seem to be keeping these things precautionary so that he will be healthy in the long run.

Hopefully he will be able to play Monday against the Grizzlies, but his status past Saturday is totally up in the air as of now. Wishing CP3 a quick recovery.
