Paul out of Clippers' lineup vs. Nets
Chris Paul missed the Los Angeles Clippers' game against the New Jersey Nets on Monday because of a hamstring injury.
The All-Star point guard strained his left hamstring during the fourth quarter of a victory over the Lakers on Saturday.
Five-time All-Star Chauncey Billups, playing with tightness in his back, started at point guard instead of shooting guard. Randy Foye was at the other guard spot.
Paul is averaging 18.0 points and 8.4 assists.
