Report: Chris Paul ‘trying his best’ for Game 7
Chris Paul may not play in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, but it doesn’t sound like it will be for lack of trying.
Marc J. Spears of the Undefeated reported Monday that, with tipoff looming, Paul is still doing everything possible to play despite a hamstring injury.

That doesn’t sound particularly optimistic, but it’s something. As of Sunday, Paul hadn’t tested the hamstring, and while coach Mike D’Antoni wasn’t optimistic, he wasn’t ruling anything out. The Rockets are doing everything within their power to at least get Paul on the court, though even if that works out, it’s hard to imagine him being all that effective.
