Report: Houston Rockets Fear Chris Paul's Knee Issue Could Sideline Him For A Month

Paul has already missed one game.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul's bruised left knee kept him out of crunch time in his team's season-opening win over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. It also caused him to miss Houston's game against Sacramento on Wednesday.

Now, there are concerns that CPIII could be out of action much longer. According to The New York Times' Marc Stein, the Rockets are worried that Paul's knee issue could cost him a month.

As of now, the team is listing him as day-to-day, but plans to exercise caution in when they bring him back.

Considering the Rockets have a guy named James Harden who proved last year that he can play the point guard position pretty well, there is no need to rush Paul back.

Second-year pro Demetrius Jackson, who played 10 minutes against Sacramento, could also seen an uptick in playing time.
