Clippers guard Chris Paul sprained his left thumb with 3:04 left in the second quarter of Monday night’s 120-98 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder and was ruled out for the rest of the game.
X-rays on the thumb were negative, but further tests need to be done to determine the extent of the injury.
“We don’t know yet,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said after the game. “The original X-ray was negative on his left thumb. They’re going to do an MRI tomorrow, so we’ll know more. I didn’t see [what happened]. I guess they said [Russell] Westbrook came down on [Paul’s thumb]. But whenever you see a guard pull their hand out, you pretty much know what just happened.”
