    We all saw that Chris was hobbled . Have there been any posts/ tweets that detail the severity or type of injury .

    It happened in the preseason when he took a shot there and it's not fully healed yet .

    Should we play him tomorrow ? Is this something that can get better while you play on it ?

    I understand we are thin at backup PG and obviously id rather not play James and Eric for 40 minutes on a back to back .

    What are our options and how do we get Chris healthy and playing with James to build chemistry ?

    Rest him. Not worth the risk. Play Gordon at PG some or give minutes to Bobby Brown.

    Treat him like Nene. Harden is that good in the regular season. CP3 was brought here for the playoffs.

    Not if he keeps playing on it. I really want the Rox to sit him and let him rest it.

    He won't play against the Kings. Let's hope the Rockets bring enough energy to get the win. One game at a time.

    Chemistry will improve. This will just delay the process a few games.

    Seeing how fired up CP3 was after the game was great. He's accustomed to getting abused by the Warriors and probably hates them more than anyone else on the team.

    If that's the case , WTF were we doing throwing him out there in the beginning !?

    A statement win is nice ; but not at the cost of exacerbating a knee injury to our 33 year old pg.

    Jesus Mike !!

    To be fair he was a big part of the comeback at the beginning of the 4th when we were down 13. He didn't shoot well (or much) but he did get 11 assists (only 1 turnover), 8 rebs, 2 stls, 1 blk..his defense was also solid. This is him on one leg too.

    I actually think the Rockets comeback was ignited when Chris Paul was running the show. His defense and him running the offense kept the pressure on. Eric Gordon, Tucker, and Luc are the heroes though.

    Paul has been bone on bone for ages. Had his meniscus removed years ago.
