Rockets guard Paul out for game seven
The Houston Rockets will be without Chris Paul for their series decider against the Golden State Warriors.
Houston Rockets star Chris Paul will miss Monday's game seven of the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors, coach Mike D'Antoni said.
Paul injured his right hamstring in the final minute of Houston's game-five win when he collided with Warriors guard Quinn Cook while driving to the basket.
He missed the Rockets' game-six loss. D'Antoni had said the point guard would be a game-time decision for the series decider.
A report earlier on Monday by ESPN noted Paul was "trying his best" to play.
Paul is averaging 21.1 points and 5.8 assists per game in the playoffs.
