Rockets star guard Chris Paul exited Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Thursday in the last minute after hurting his right hamstring.

Paul reached for the hamstring after missing a runner in the lane with 51.7 seconds left. He limped noticeably during the next two possessions and checked out of the game after briefly consulting with Rockets athletic trainer Keith Jones during a timeout with 22.4 seconds left. Paul received extensive treatment postgame and told Marc J. Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated that he “will be all right.” Asked about Game 6 on Saturday, he said, “Oh yeah.” The team planned to provide an update on Paul’s status Friday.
