Rockets' Chris Paul still dealing with knee soreness

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Houston guard Chris Paul is questionable for the Rockets' game in Sacramento on Wednesday night because of left knee soreness.

Paul had four points and shot 2 for 9 in the Rockets' season-opening win at Golden State on Tuesday.

He led the Rockets with 11 assists and also grabbed eight rebounds, while playing 33 minutes in his regular-season debut with Houston after being traded away by the Los Angeles Clippers during the offseason.

Paul was hampered at the end of the preseason by the knee pain which continued flaring Tuesday, and Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni says the perennial All-Star "is playing on one leg right now."

Tuesday's game was the first since March 9, 2015 where Paul was held to four points or less.
