Watch: Chris Paul exits Game 5 after aggravating injury
Chris Paul had a look of determination on his face throughout Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night. It was like only an injury could knock him out of the game. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened.
Paul missed a floater with just under a minute left in the game and hurt himself in the process.

CP3 was unable to get back for the Houston Rockets’ defensive possession and eventually was subbed out with 22.4 seconds remaining in the game. He had been playing well before that point and had 20 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists.
Not only has Paul dealt with hamstring problems, but he also has had a foot injury during this series. The good news is the Rockets pulled out a 98-94 win to take a 3-2 series lead on the Warriors. Game 6 will be on Saturday, but CP3’s status will be a huge question.
The team will provide an update on the status of his right hamstring on Friday.
