Chris Paul injury update: Mike D’Antoni says Rockets guard is 'game-time decision' for Game 7

There’s a chance Rockets guard Chris Paul returns for Game 7 against the Warriors.

Chris Paul is a “game-time decision” for the final matchup of the Western Conference Finals, Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said Sunday. D’Antoni said the Rockets will play Paul’s return “by ear.”

D’Antoni initially said Paul was questionable for Monday’s game. But, when asked again, he said the star point guard was “doubtful” to play, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle.

A report Saturday from ESPN said Paul was “less likely than likely” to play in Game 7.

Paul injured his right hamstring in the final minute of Houston’s Game 5 win when he collided with Warriors guard Quinn Cook while driving to the basket. Paul missed the Rockets’ Game 6 loss.

Paul is averaging 21.1 points and 5.8 assists per game in the playoffs.

The Warriors and Rockets will play Monday at 9 p.m. ET for a spot in the NBA Finals.
