Chris Paul out 'the next couple' games at least

December 3, 2015

Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul missed Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers, and could be out a while longer, according to head coach Doc Rivers. 

Before the game, Rivers said he assumes Paul will miss ""the next couple [games] for sure. I think he's getting another evaluation today, so we'll see."

Paul left Monday's win over the Portland Trail Blazers early after sustaining a rib injury, which the Clippers dubbed as "inflamed rib cartilage."

Austin Rivers started in Paul's place on Wednesday, and will likely continue to start while Paul's out. The Clippers are 1-2 when Paul is out.
