Chris Paul Is Questionable for Game 1 vs Rockets

NBA via Los Angeles Clippers(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Clippers have officially listed point guard Chris Paul as questionable for Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets on Monday.

Doc Rivers is very concerned with Paul's injury.

Yeah, yeah, very," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Saturday night. "Someone is going to have to step up. I was thinking it's funny how coaches think with three minutes left, I'm thinking, 'OK, if we win this game, thank God I signed Lester [Hudson] because now you have two guards left.' We almost went big, and then we would literally have no other guards left. That was the first thing I thought."

"Chris may play or may not play the first game, but the game is Monday. My guess right now if I had to guess, I would say no, but I'm not sure."

Paul suffered the injury in the 1st quarter of Game 7 against the Spurs and played injured throughout the entire game.

Paul Shrugs Off Injury, Propels Clippers Into Western Conference Semis

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Chris Paul wasn't going to let a bum hamstring stop him from being on the court in Game 7 of the Los Angeles Clippers' first round playoff series versus the San Antonio Spurs.

Paul, who left the game at the end of the first quarter to tend to a left hamstring strain, returned in the second quarter. He played the rest of the way, scoring a team-high 27 points including what proved to be the game winning shot with a second remaining as the Clippers top the Spurs 111-109 Saturday to advance to the Western Conference semifinals.

The Spurs once again fail to repeat as NBA champions, but they put up a good fight. In a game that featured 31 lead changes, their old horse, Tim Duncan, was fouled with a little over eight seconds remaining. He knocked down two free throws to tie the game at 109.

On the following play, Paul drove Danny Green into the paint, pulled up, and knocked down a five-foot jumper to take the lead. The Spurs had one last crack at tying the game, but Boris Diaw's inbounds pass that was meant for Kawhi Leonard, who was driving to the hoop, was swatted away by Matt Barnes as the clock struck zero.

Duncan finished the game with 27 points and 11 rebounds.

The No. 3 seed Clippers advance to the second round where they will take on the No. 2 seed Houston Rockets.

Game 1 is Monday at 9:30 p.m. ET in Houston.

Clippers' Glen Davis Questionable for Game 7

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Los Angeles Clippers forward Glen Davis is questionable for Saturday's Game 7 against the San Antonio Spurs with a left ankle sprain.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers chose not to have practice on Friday and shootaround on Saturday.

"It's an ankle sprain, and we'll find out more tomorrow," Rivers said Friday. "We won't know much today."+

Rivers is confident with the rest of his bench headed into Game 7.

"We got [Hedo Turkoglu and Spencer Hawes], we can go small, we basically did that last night," Rivers said. "The game will dictate that."

Davis left Game 6 in the fourth quarter and did not return as the Clippers went onto silence the Spurs in San Antonio.

Report: Clippers' Blake Griffin Set to Return Next Week

NBA via Los Angeles Clippers(NEW YORK) -- As the Los Angeles Clippers begin to climb the standings in the Western Conference, they're bracing for the return of forward Blake Griffin.

According to ESPN's Arash Markazi, Griffin is expected back as soon as next week.

Griffin has missed the last ten games after undergoing surgery to treat a staph infection in his right elbow. Despite his absence, the Clippers have gone 7-3.

The timeline for Griffin's return was initially in the 4-6 week range. He last played on Feb. 6.

Markazi also reports that Griffin's conditioning and cardio is back to normal and he's expected to start shooting this week.

Even though DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul have been carrying the Clippers the last month, Griffin is still one of the team's best players. Now in his fifth NBA season, the 25-year-old is averaging 22.5 points and 7.5 rebounds per game.

Entering Tuesday, the Clippers sit at 40-21, fifth in the Western Conference.
