Report: Chris Paul could miss more than two months with hamstring injury

Chris Paul Rockets

The Houston Rockets have struggled anytime Chris Paul is not in their lineup this year, and it sounds like they are going to have to find ways to win without the star point guard for a significant portion of the regular season.

Paul left Thursday night’s game against the Miami Heat with a hamstring injury, and NBA reporter Peter Vecsey was told by sources that he suffered a Grade 3 tear. CP3 could be held out through the All-Star break, which is in mid-February.

Paul had previously been bothered by a left hamstring injury this season, and he has battled them throughout his career. The Rockets are 16-15 and off to a slow start, and they are 0-5 in games that Paul hasn’t played.

Paul dealt with a hamstring injury that caused him to be unavailable at a crucial time in the playoffs last year, so Houston obviously wants to make sure he is available late in the year. That could mean playing it cautious with him over the next couple of months and trying to somehow stay afloat without him.
