Chris Paul has missed the first two games of this series, but with the series tied 1-1 the Clippers may need him tonight.  He's still officially listed as questionable, but according to a source of Dan Woike's, the plan tonight is for him to try and play.

The Clippers have been pretty reserved talking about this injury, likely to try and throw the Rockets off.  Maybe this is an actual leak, maybe this is the Clippers using one of their media guys to spread false info to trick Houston into planning for someone who's not playing.  We won't know for sure if Paul will be active until shortly before gametime, and we won't know if he'll start until a few minutes before the jumpball, and if he doesn't start, we won't know if he'll sub in until he heads to the table.

Update 3:20 EST

Matt Barnes has now said that Chris Paul told him that he was going to play tonight.
