After missing the last two games, Houston Rockets point guard, Chris Paul, is listed as day-to-day with a sore left leg.
During the 135-131 loss to the Washington Wizards Monday night, Chris Paul missed his second straight game. In what was thought to be rest, is now a little worse than one initially thought. According to ESPN reports, Rockets head coach, Mike D’Antoni, officially listed Paul as day-to-day with a sore left leg.
Still hunted by the hamstring injury he sustained during the Western Conference Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors last season, D’Antoni says he has to make sure that Paul is 100 percent moving forward.
“We’ve just got to make sure Chris is 100 percent well from his strained hammy,” Houston coach Mike D’Antoni said.
Due to a suspension and several injuries to the core of their roster, the start of the 2018-19 season has not been kind to the Rockets. After winning 65-games last season, Houston got off to one of their worst starts in franchise history, winning only one of their first five games on the season.
Although they would go on to win eight of their next 10 games, the Rockets are currently riding a three-game losing streak, and are now setting under .500 on the season (9-10). Appearing in eight games, Paul has averaged 17.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, and 4.8 rebounds this season.
