Potentially devastating news for the Phoenix Suns — superstar point guard Chris Paul has been sidelined for an indefinite period of time … as part of the NBA’s COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
In other words, CP3’s status for the start of the Western Conference Finals is reportedly “up in the air” … depending on when the Clippers/Jazz series ends, according to Shams Charania.
Paul has been the backbone for the red-hot Suns — averaging 15.7 points, 4.1 rebounds and 8.7 assists through 10 games this postseason.
Phoenix has been on a tear in the playoffs … eliminating LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in the first round and sweeping the Denver Nuggets in the semifinals.
The Jazz vs. Clippers series is currently tied at 2 games apiece … and if either team wins in 6, it sounds like Paul will not be ready to go.
