Report: Chris Paul has Grade 2 hamstring strain, usually 3-4 week injury

Golden State Warriors v Houston Rockets - Game Five

HOUSTON, TX - MAY 24: Chris Paul #3 of the Houston Rockets grabs his leg after falling against the Golden State Warriors in the fourth quarter of Game Five of the Western Conference Finals of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at Toyota Center on May 24, 2018 in Houston, Texas.

Rockets point guard Chris Paul missed Games 6 and 7 of the Western Conference Finals with a strained hamstring.

If the Rockets advance to the NBA Finals, he may not be able to play then, either. From Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

During the regular season, guys usually miss 3-4 weeks with that injury. It puts in doubt Paul’s ability to play in Game 1 on Thursday and maybe early in the Finals at all. Game 3 is the more likely call, according to reports.

That said, if anyone would push his body to get back it is CP3, one of the NBA’s most competitive players (in a league of professional competitors). Paul came to Houston to get a shot at the NBA Finals, no way he would pass it up.
