Top Chris Paul News

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Bags five steals in win

    Paul logged nine points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 assists, five steals, two rebounds and two blocks across 34 minutes during Tuesday's 116-112 victory over the Nets.

    The veteran point guard was held to single digits in the scoring column for the third time in five games while he continues to struggle through his worst shooting season since 2006-07, but he was at least able to salvage his night with his strong outputs in assists, steals and rebounds. Paul has nowhere to go but up from his 43.2 percent rate from the field this season, but even if that happens, he may not see a dramatic boost in his scoring output now that running mate Devin Booker (groin) is back from a long-term absence.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Nice game despite poor shooting

    Paul provided two points (0-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, 14 assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Saturday's 116-100 victory over the Pistons.

    Paul has had some rough shooting nights to start the month of February but none quite as bad as Saturday night. His only points (2) came from the free-throw line. Fortunately for fantasy managers, he did attempt only seven shots, so that lessens the categorical impact a bit. On top of that, the veteran guard certainly made up for it by dishing out 14 dimes, his highest output since Christmas Day. The inefficient scoring might continue, but Paul provides enough elsewhere to maintain his usual value in fantasy.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Scores 15 on 15 shots

    Paul posted 15 points (6-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, eight assists, one block and one steal over 35 minutes during Friday's 106-94 victory over Boston.

    Paul didn't have a good shooting performance Friday, but he still salvaged his fantasy performance by posting solid passing, rebounding and defensive numbers, ending just two dimes away from posting what would've been his 12th double-double of the season. The veteran floor general is not the dominant point guard he once was, and there are signs that age is finally catching up to him, but he remains a productive fantasy asset. Paul is averaging 18.0 points, 9.0 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game across his seven outings since returning from a hip injury that kept him sidelined for seven contests in January.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Nearly invisible in blowout loss

    Paul totaled three points (1-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one block across 27 minutes during Wednesday's 132-100 loss to Atlanta.

    A first glance at Paul's numbers Wednesday might lead to the belief that he didn't see the court much in the blowout loss, but his 3/2/3 line actually came across 27 minutes. The future Hall of Famer simply couldn't get anything going against Trae Young and the Hawks, as he went just 1-for-6 from the field and recorded nearly as many turnovers (two) as assists (three). It can be tempting to blame poor performances on Paul's advancing age, but he was playing quite well coming into Wednesday, averaging 21.6 points, 10.4 assists, 5.6 boards and 2.8 three-pointers over his previous five contests.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Flirts with double-double

    Paul recorded 19 points (5-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and two blocks across 35 minutes during Monday's 114-106 victory over Toronto.

    Paul has scored in double figures in five consecutive contests since returning from a seven-game absence due to a hip injury, but he fell just one assist shy of a fifth straight double-double Monday. Regardless, the veteran point guard has shown no signs of rust following his time off and is averaging 21.6 points, 10.4 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks since returning to action. Expect Paul to continue handling extra offensive responsibilities until Devin Booker (groin) is able to suit up again.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Scores team-high 31

    Paul accumulated 31 points (12-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, 11 assists, two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes during Saturday's 128-118 overtime victory over the Spurs.

    Paul led a shorthanded Phoenix squad to the overtime victory with 31 points and notched his fourth straight double-double with 11 dimes. He was doing everything Saturday night, including hitting 60 percent of his shots and all of his free-throw attempts while adding his typical defensive stats. The future Hall of Famer is on a nice run since returning from a hip injury and is showing almost no signs of slowing down.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Continues hot streak

    Paul had 22 points (9-16 FG, 4-7 3Pt), six rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 38 minutes during Thursday's 99-95 loss to Dallas.

    The veteran floor general turned back time and was impressive despite the loss, shooting efficiently from the field and dishing out double-digit dimes for the third straight game since returning from a seven-game absence due to a hip injury. Paul has double-doubles in all three outings since returning to the court, shooting 53.5 percent from the field in that span.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Shines bright in return

    Paul (hip) ended Sunday's 112-110 win over the Grizzlies with 22 points (8-18 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block across 38 minutes.

    Though he had missed the Suns' past seven games with the hip injury, Paul looked to be in vintage form during his time on the court, and his hefty minutes load suggested that the coaching and training staffs had no reservations about easing him back in. With Devin Booker (groin) still likely out for another week, Paul could see an uptick in his scoring for the next few games. Managers who waited on activating Paul from an injured reserve slot can feel comfortable doing so now based on how he performed and what kind of minutes he received Sunday.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Will make return Sunday

    Paul (hip) will be available for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Gerald Bourguet of PHNX Sports reports.

    Earlier in the day, it became clear that Paul was targeting a return Sunday night, and that will indeed be the case. The veteran will play for the first time since Jan. 6 after missing a string of seven straight games due to a hip injury. In 25 healthy contests this season, Paul is posting 13.4 points, 8.6 assists, 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals, but he's shooting a career-low 42.5 percent from the field. Expect Paul to potentially face a soft minutes restriction Sunday, given the layoff.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Looks likely to play Sunday

    Paul (hip) is probable for Sunday's matchup against Memphis, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Paul has missed seven straight games due to a hip issue, but it appears he'll return to action Sunday. Before suffering the injury, the veteran point guard had scored in double figures in 13 of his past 14 appearances and posted 16.9 points, 8.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 33.6 minutes per game. If Paul is indeed available, it seems likely he'd be under a minutes restriction following a lengthy absence.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Sitting again Saturday

    Paul (hip) will not play Saturday against the Pacers, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.

    Paul joins the sizable list of Suns backcourt players who won't be in uniform, leaving the ranks relatively thin heading into the contest. Look for Damion Lee to draw another start as a result, with Duane Washington and Saben Lee also likely to draw big workloads. Paul won't have to wait long for his next opportunity to return Sunday against the Grizzlies.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Tabbed questionable

    Paul (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Pacers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

    Paul has missed six consecutive games with soreness in his right hip and will land a questionable tag for the second straight tilt. The point guard's absence has led to Duane Washington and Saben Lee seeing expanded run, but if Paul manages to return Saturday he would be in line for a larger usage without Devin Booker (groin).

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Ruled out Thursday

    Paul (hip) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against Brooklyn, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.

    Paul returned to practice Wednesday, but he'll be forced to miss a sixth consecutive game due to his hip injury. Landry Shamet (foot) has also been ruled out, so Duane Washington will likely return to the starting lineup. Paul's next chance to suit up will be Saturday against the Pacers.

  • Suns' Chris Paul: Labeled questionable Thursday

    Paul (hip) sports a questionable status leading up to Thursday's game versus the Nets.

    After skipping five consecutive games, Paul returned to practice Wednesday, which undoubtedly places him on a positive-trending path regarding his status against the Nets. However, he's not out of the woods yet, and it will be worth monitoring his status leading up to the 10 PM ET tipoff Thursday. If he can't go again, Duane Washington would likely get another opportunity in the starting unit with Landry Shamet (foot) already ruled out.
