Although earlier reports looked promising, Houston’s Chris Paul will miss Game 6 of the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night because of a hamstring injury.
Paul was injured in the fourth quarter of Houston’s win over the Warriors on Thursday night. The win gave the Rockets a 3-2 lead in the best-of-seven series.
The Rockets say Paul’s strained right hamstring will be re-evaluated after the team returns to Houston following Game 6.

As a Warriors fan, I'd rather get beat by a healthy team than to beat one without one of their best players. This sucks. Get better @CP3 !
