    if its a tear, hes done without question.

    a strain is an entrely different story and alot of it will be based on pain tolerance. also a minutes restriction would definitely come into play if he decides to tough it out

    Only reason Kerr was confident at the press conference is because of the Paul injury. They got D’d up for two games straight.

    It’s time for Harden to step it up offensively...

    Shoot, this sux bad about Paul’s hamstring....

    That was over a decade ago. Paul isn't a spring chicken anymore.

    Yeah but in what condition?

    A limping Chris Paul isnt going to get it done.

    I dont know whats worse?

    To lose a series by gettin blown out or to go up and get this close and then lose the series on a friggin injury.

    Losing by getting this close and in this manner is really going to be cruel.

    High likely hood that Paul might be using HBOT(hyperbaric Oxygen therapy) tonight...Rest fully tomorrow...Then check on game day if he can go...if not might get a few days before a possible game 7. (but if the Rockets stun the nation with a game 6 win) ...he'll get more days

    He was in pain and not happy, but he was limping around on his own power. He's looked just as bad before and skipped a game to rest, but I remember D'Antoni saying he would play if it was an important game. Hopefully it's at that level of pull (or better). Have Gordon start and CP3 come off the bench in game 6.

    If(and I pray this is the case) it's similar to his 2015 Game 7 injury, I think he sits Game 6 and gives it a go in Game 7.

    3 years ago, he strained his hammy against the Spurs and then missed Games 1 and 2 against the Rockets. But here's the "what if?" we'll never know. If the Rockets hadn't come out lackadaisical and gotten their asses handed to them in Game 1 by LA, would CP3 have sat out of Game 2? We gave him the luxury of another game off because they'd already stolen one. Hell, they nearly stole Game 2 without him.

    Hopefully and prayfully GOD allows Mother Goddess Oshun and healer Osain to work with CP3's hamstring and assist the medical staff with the right course of treatment. Peace and blessings.

    I honestly think pain tolerance isn't a factor this deep into the playoffs as our trainers probably have some CRAZY strong IV pain meds.

    I think it just depends on the severity of the strain. If there is no risk of severe aggravation to the injury, Paul will play no matter the pain.

    Jay, I'm so proud of the Rockets sitting at 3-2 over the Worriers. It's really been a "Utah Jazz" type grind the past 2 games and the Rockets prevailed in the end....that's huge.

    I agree with what you're saying about CP3 needing to play if nothing is torn. I will say CP3's ill-timed strain all but sucked the elation out of tonight's win. I can't remember the last time the Rockets won a critical game and I was like...."ok...........I hope CP3 is ok". Not a good feeling.

    Rockets are the better team over the Worriers. They've proven that. Only Caveat with the Rockets is they can not afford to have CP3 or Harden go down. We will see what the reports say about CP3 tomorrow.

    I have no doubt the Rockets will fight because they've proven time and time again they're built to do that. I just don't know if they'll have enough to win one more against the Worriers because CP3 is hurt/injured. We will find out very soon.

    "Just the way Steve Kerr has had to deal..."

    No. Stop there. Chris Paul is infinitely more valuable than McGee, McCaw and Iguodala. We're talking about Chris f****** Paul here.

    No Chris Paul = no heart, no leadership, no will, no want to, no "refuse to lose"... not from Harden anyways. No Chris Paul, Rockets lose these last two games.



    You're probably saying "Nah, that's just all fake ****, that ****'s not real. Heart & leadership, you're just speaking in cliches about stuff that isn't real." That ****'s real alright! No Chris Paul, Rockets back to the Rockets of yesteryears. Harden trying to do it all & role players. And if he's trying to do it offensively, that "great D" ain't gonna be there. And if it is, his O will be off/missing again.

    Time to play like the MVP! No excuses! No concussions, no mysterious illnesses, no "he's drunk! He went to the club!", no "But Iguodala is back!", nothing. High bar? You betchya! Go get it done Jimmy & company! Go get it done.

    If he’s out that long the Rockets may very well lose the series. It sucks because we’re one game away from the Finals. The Warriors always get lucky playing a team with an important player injured. One all star against 4 makes my blood boil.
