Insight: It was just one of those days when he couldn't get anything to drop. He had gone 40-for-74 (54 percent) in the previous five games, so we expect him to return to normal on Thursday. Start him as always.

Insight: Paul finished with 18 points, 12 assists and eight boards as the Clippers held on for an eight-point win. The sprained thumb Paul suffered Friday versus Memphis didn't seem to be an issue. Look for Paul to have another big outing Monday against the Pelicans.

2/22/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul (thumb) said there is "no question" he'll play Sunday against the Thunder.
Insight: Paul sprained his right thumb Friday night, but it doesn't look like he'll miss any time. Tough luck for anyone who picked up Darren Collison.
 
2/22/2014 10:53:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul sprained his right thumb in Friday's game against Memphis.

2/9/2014 8:03:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles point guard Chris Paul is officially active for Sunday night's game against the 76ers. SOURCE: Ralph Lawler, Clippers play-by-play
Insight: Paul sat out a month with a separated shoulder. When healthy, he's the best point guard in fantasy hoops. Even if the Clippers are cautious with Paul (19.6 ppg, 11.2 apg, 2.4 spg, 4.6 rpg) at first, fantasy owners should still start him.
 
2/8/2014 4:15:00 PM
Description: According to Eric Patten of Clippers.com, Los Angeles coach Doc Rivers said after Saturday's practice that he plans on playing Chris Paul (shoulder) Sunday.
Insight: Prior to practice, Rivers gave Paul a "50-50" chance of playing Sunday, but he reassessed the situation after Paul looked "great" in the session. The All-Star point guard suffered a separated shoulder on Jan. 3.
 
2/6/2014 6:18:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles guard Chris Paul is probable for Sunday's tilt against the Sixers. He's been out with a separated shoulder since January 3rd. SOURCE: Arash Markazi, ESPN Los Angeles
Insight: Paul (19.6 ppg, 11.2 apg, 4.6 rpg) could be on a minutes limit at first, so fantasy owners should wait before dropping Darren Collison. If Paul plays his usual 34.6 mpg right away, feel free to cut the cord on Collison.
 
2/5/2014 10:58:00 PM
Description: According to ESPN sideline reporter Lisa Salters, Clippers point guard Chris Paul could make his return from a separated shoulder as early as Sunday versus Philadelphia.
Insight: Paul hasn't appeared in a game since January 3rd. If he does return Sunday it will be about a week ahead of schedule. Darren Collison's fantasy value will take a major hit upon Paul's return.
 
1/30/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul (shoulder) is aiming to return either Feb. 7 or Feb. 9, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
Insight: Paul separated his shoulder and hasn't played since Jan. 3. Darren Collison fantasy owners should prepare for his value to drop off the table soon.
 
1/30/2014 10:19:00 AM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul has been working out and shooting, but there is still no concrete timetable for his return from the separated shoulder.
Insight: Paul separated his shoulder earlier this month and was given a six-week timetable for his recovery which likely means a return after the All-Star break. The Clippers are a surprising 10-3 without CP3 which could lead to the team being conservative. Fantasy owners, however, hope he's back ASAP.
