The Rockets have announced that Chris Paul’s hamstring injury will keep him out of tonight’s pivotal Game 7 against the Warriors.

CP3 was a game-time decision going into tonight but it looks like his hamstring did not heal quickly enough since he strained it in Thursday’s Game 5 victory.
D'Antoni: "There's just no way. He couldn't explode. He couldn't push off on it."— Jonathan Feigen (@Jonathan_Feigen) May 28, 2018
Houston will start Eric Gordon in CP3’s place and Luc Mbah a Moute will see some action as well off the bench. I feel for CP3, a guy who has had arguably the craziest season of his career. If he doesn’t play another game this season, and the Rockets don’t end the season with a championship, it will be a sad and disappointing ending.
