Chris Paul officially questionable for Game 7, has not tested hamstring
Chris Paul’s status for Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals will not be determined until close to tipoff, as the Houston Rockets point guard has yet to test it out.
Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said in his Sunday conference call that Paul will be officially listed as questionable, but it may not be until Monday afternoon that a decision is made on his status. Paul is receiving near-constant treatment on his injured hamstring in the hope that he’ll be able to suit up.
Mike D'Antoni on Chris Paul's Game 7 status: "I think it's a game-time decision. Probably doubtful, however they list it, or questionable. They will eventually test it and see if there's any possibility whatsoever." Paul has not tested his hamstring since straining it in Game 5.

Mike D'Antoni says Chris Paul is listed as questionable for Game 7. Sounds like it'll be a 24/7 treatment deal up until a decision has to be made tomorrow.

In reality, it’s unlikely Paul plays given the nature of the injury that he suffered in Game 5. Even if he did, it would be a big question mark as to how effective he’d be. Houston is probably planning to play the decisive game without him.
