Chris Paul expected to return for Rockets on Sunday

Chris Paul Rockets

The James Harden tour of individual dominance may be coming to an end.

The Houston Rockets expect to have Chris Paul back on Sunday against the Orlando Magic. ESPN’s Tim MacMahon says it’s almost 100 percent that CP3 will return over the weekend.

Paul has been out since injuring his hamstring on Dec. 20 — his latest in a long line of hamstring injuries. The 33-year-old guard’s absence led James Harden to go crazy offensively. The reigning league MVP has averaged over 44 points per game in January with Paul out.

The Rockets won five in a row after Paul got hurt but have gone 7-5 since. Though Harden’s scoring may go down, he will probably welcome the help carrying the load.
