Clippers are ready for Chris Paul's return

After being sidelined with the Clippers for the past month, Chris Paul looks ready to return in time to participate in All-Star weekend festivities in New Orleans.

"It's where I played my very first All-Star Game, and anytime you have that opportunity, I'm not going to pass it up," said Paul.

Paul played his first six years in the NBA as a member of the New Orleans Hornets, and the city is truly a special place for him.

The Clippers have gone an amazing 11-6 since Paul was injured against the Dallas mavericks on January 3rd, that resulted in separated right shoulder.

Paul intensified his rehab, and even joined the team on part of their Grammy road trip.

On Wednesday during a pre game press conference, head coach Doc Rivers gave an update on Paul's status. "He did some one-on-ones today at shoot around and looked pretty good, so I think he's very close. I don't think he'll play Friday but he could play after that. He took contact today in one-on-ones, but it's still not a 5-on-5."

The Clippers and Paul have looked for his return to occur on Sunday night, when the team takes on the Philadelphia 76ers at Staples Center.

He will also play against the Portland Trailblazers on Wednesday before playing as a reserve in the NBA All-Game on Sunday February 16th.
