The Los Angeles Clippers don't know when Chris Paul will return, as the star point guard still hasn't begun practicing after reaggravating a knee bruise.

Chris Paul still has not come back to practice for the Los Angeles Clippers, and the team says there's no timetable for his return, according to Los Angeles Times beat reporter Brad Turner.

After hurting his knee on Jan. 12 in the closing seconds of a win over the Orlando Magic, Paul has only played twice, returning a week later on Jan. 19 but aggravating the injury. He's missed nine games total with the injury, with the team going 5-4 - decent, but well off the pace that briefly had them leading the Western Conference. Paul was elected starter for the West in the upcomingA All-Star Game, but one would have to imagine that he won't play with the knee a nagging issue.

As we wrote when Paul first started missing games, knee bruises are often significantly more serious than they sound, with Tyreke Evans, Amar'e Stoudemire, Anderson Varejao, Andrew Bynum, and Eric Gordon each missing large amounts of time or eventually needing surgery with injuries initially diagnosed as knee bruises. Paul's injury is still classified as just a knee bruise, but its not encouraging that there's no word on a potential return.
