Report: Chris Paul hamstring status ‘not good’ after Game 5 injury
Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul sounds like he’s facing an uphill battle to play in Game 6.
Paul injured his hamstring late in Houston’s Game 5 victory over the Golden State Warriors, but a team source told ESPN’s Tim MacMahon on Friday morning that Paul was in pretty bad shape after a night to rest.
"Not good," a Rockets source replied to a text asking about Chris Paul (hamstring) feels this morning.

Paul anticipated that he’d be alright for Game 6 immediately after Thursday’s contest, and perhaps he will end up being right. The fact that he’s apparently still suffering as of Friday morning, however, is a bad sign. It may be more likely than not that he has to sit out at least one game.
