Chris Paul says he will be ‘alright’ for Game 6 despite hamstring injury

Chris Paul Rockets

Chris Paul is dealing with yet another hamstring injury, but the Houston Rockets star does not expect it to cost him any time in the Western Conference Finals.

Paul left his team’s Game 5 win over the Golden State Warriors in the final minute on Thursday after he tweaked his right hamstring. He appeared to injure it on an awkward floater attempt. After the game, the point guard expressed optimism about his availability for Game 6.

Paul battled a left hamstring injury during the regular season, and he had a similar ailment during the 2015 playoffs with the Clippers. This is not the first injury he has dealt with in the Western Conference Finals, but CP3 has played extremely well and is one of the main reasons the Rockets have a 3-2 series lead. If he’s unable to play on Saturday, Eric Gordon will likely have an expanded role.
