Chris Paul receiving treatment for right hamstring injury
Chris Paul officially is dealing with another hamstring injury.
Paul did not speak with the media after the Houston Rockets’ 98-94 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 on Thursday night because he was receiving treatment on his right hamstring.
The Rockets point guard injured his hamstring in the final minute of the game and had to be replaced with just over 20 seconds left.

The Rockets have said that they will provide an update on Paul’s status on Friday.
Paul battled a left hamstring injury during the regular season. He also had a left hamstring injury during the 2015 playoffs with the Clippers. CP3 worked through a sore foot earlier in the Western Conference Finals and is a big reason why his team leads the series 3-2. Eric Gordon could see a bigger role if Paul is unable to play in Game 6 or 7.
