The Los Angeles Clippers have currently been without their floor general Chris Paul for 17 games but the return for the superstar could be as soon as Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Reports from Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times: "Doc Rivers says Chris Paul played one on one today and looked good, Doc says CP may not play Friday but Sunday vs. Philly."
The Clippers have actually performed surprisingly well without the leadership of Paul, with Blake Griffin notably stepping up in his absence and even posting a season high 43 point performance against the champion Miami Heat, albeit in a 116-112 loss.
Without CP3 they have recorded an 11-6 record during his absence, but possibly considered the best point guard in the league, upon his return Chris Paul will look to catapult the Clippers into one of the top seeds in the Western Conference and make a deep run into the play-offs.
Clipper Nation will surely be excited to hear that the ring leader of the formerly known 'Lob City' crew is on the mend and may return from his separated shoulder injury as early as Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers.
