Clippers guard Chris Paul is listed as questionable with a left hamstring sprain for Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against Houston.

Paul suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Clippers' thrilling 111-109 win over San Antonio in Game 7 of the first round of the playoffs.

It didn't hamper him from scoring 27 points and the game-winner with 1 second left.

Doc Rivers already said he was "very concerned" after Game 1 about Paul and said if he had to guess he figured Paul wouldn't play.

Paul had an MRI Sunday and it was negative. He is getting treatment 24-7 until game time in Houston. He's listed as questionable still, and Rivers told reporters in Houston that he will be a game-time decision. 

Paul was also listed as questionable during Game 7 but minutes after that he returned to the game and turned in the performance of his career.

After the game, Paul conducted his press conference in street clothes on the top half of his body and basketball shorts on the bottom with his left hamstring heavily wrapped.


He said he would work with trainers and that his grandmother in North Carolina and his mom would be praying for him.
