The Los Angeles Clippers have Chris Paul back in their starting lineup Sunday against the Indiana Pacers after the point guard missed a game due to a hamstring strain, according to ESPN's Arash Markazi.
The Clippers guard injured himself in the third quarter of a 93-80 win against the New York Knicks on Wednesday, but was cleared to return in the fourth quarter. Instead, he sat out the period and the ensuing game. Paul, who is averaging 19 points and 12.2 assists per game, missed a 104-98 victory against the Sacramento Kings on Friday, and in his place Los Angeles turned to point guard Darren Collison, who scored 15 points as a starter.
Clippers head coach Doc Rivers could use a little more stability on the roster now that guard J.J. Redick will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks. Redick, who broke his hand, will be replaced at the starting shooting guard spot by Willie Green.
