Chris Paul Suffers From Bruised Thumb, Will Play Game 6

Even if the Los Angeles Clippers win this series this is the worst-case scenario this team can come across. It’s the same thing they suffered last playoffs against the Memphis Grizzlies. They’re leaving the first round bruised and battered leaving them susceptible to whichever opponent they face in the second round. According to Dan Woike this bruise happened in a tangle up between Paul and Quincy Pondexter in the first half.

While Paul’s injury seems minimal, the Clippers playoff chances hinge on how healthy Blake Griffin will be for Game 6. Paul’s injury should be taken note of though.
