Analysis: It's a huge blow for the Clippers and fantasy owners as Paul was averaging 17.8 points, 12.3 assists and 6 rebounds in January. Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers will take over at the point.
Jan. 16 7:51 PM PT8:51 PM MT9:51 PM CT10:51 PM ET3:51 GMT11:51 8:51 PM MST10:51 PM EST7:51 UAE (+1)04:5122:51 ET9:51 PM CTNaN:� - Paul didn't return to the Clippers' game against the Thunder on Monday after halftime due to a sprained left thumb. X-rays were negative, but he's scheduled to undergo an MRI on Tuesday.
Analysis: Clippers fans have to be holding their breath, but hopefully this isn't anything major. He did miss time during the preseason with an injury to the same thumb.
Jan. 14 2:22 PM PT3:22 PM MT4:22 PM CT5:22 PM ET22:22 GMT6:22 3:22 PM MST5:22 PM EST2:22 UAE (+1)23:2217:22 ET4:22 PM CTNaN:� - Paul finished with 20 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and two steals in Saturday's rout of the Lakers.
Analysis: It was Paul's highest-scoring effort since missing time for a hamstring injury. In those four games, he's averaged 12.3 assists.
Jan. 8 3:33 PM PT4:33 PM MT5:33 PM CT6:33 PM ET23:33 GMT7:33 4:33 PM MST6:33 PM EST3:33 UAE (+1)00:3318:33 ET5:33 PM CTNaN:� - Paul had 19 points, 18 assists and one turnover and Los Angeles beat the Miami Heat 98-86 on Sunday for its fourth straight victory.
Analysis: Paul, playing in his second straight game after missing seven of his previous eight, recorded his 8,000th assist in his 805th career game, fourth-fastest in NBA history to the mark.
Dec. 30 8:16 AM PT9:16 AM MT10:16 AM CT11:16 AM ET16:16 GMT0:16 9:16 AM MST11:16 AM EST20:16 UAE17:1611:16 ET10:16 AM CTNaN:� - Paul returned to the Clippers lineup to contribute 14 points, 12 assists and three steals to Friday's win at Sacramento.
Analysis: Paul played 31 minutes and finally appears to be over the hamstring injury that sidelined him for seven of Los Angeles' last eight games. He looks safe to reinsert back into daily fantasy lineups.
Dec. 23 9:38 PM PT10:38 PM MT11:38 PM CT12:38 AM ET5:38 GMT13:38 10:38 PM MST12:38 AM EST9:38 UAE06:380:38 ET11:38 PM CTNaN:� - Paul returned Wednesday from a three-game absence due to a hamstring injury and had 21 points, eight rebounds and six assists in a loss to the Pelicans.
Analysis: The injury didn't seem to affect Paul, who was a game-time decision. Paul's scoring is down with a 17.7 average after he averaged at least 19 points the three previous seasons.
Dec. 21 9:10 PM PT10:10 PM MT11:10 PM CT12:10 AM ET5:10 GMT13:10 10:10 PM MST12:10 AM EST9:10 UAE06:100:10 ET11:10 PM CTNaN:� - Paul just missed a triple-double with 16 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds in a rout of Denver.
Analysis: Paul would've easily gotten that triple-double but he only played 26:28 with the game well in hand. He's posted double-digit assists in five of his last six games and has hit at least one 3-pointer in 11 consecutive contests. Paul will probably take on a bigger offensive load with Blake Griffin sidelined 4-6 weeks.
Dec. 18 6:57 PM PT7:57 PM MT8:57 PM CT9:57 PM ET2:57 GMT10:57 7:57 PM MST9:57 PM EST6:57 UAE (+1)03:5721:57 ET8:57 PM CTNaN:� - Paul had 12 assists Sunday but only scored 13 points.

Dec. 13 8:35 AM PT9:35 AM MT10:35 AM CT11:35 AM ET16:35 GMT0:35 9:35 AM MST11:35 AM EST20:35 UAE17:3511:35 ET10:35 AM CTNaN:� - Paul had 21 points and 14 assists, and the Clippers held off the Trail Blazers 121-120 Monday night to sweep the three-game season series.
Analysis: Paul's 14 assists from Monday have only been eclipsed by the 20 he had two nights earlier against the Pelicans.
Dec. 11 9:09 PM PT10:09 PM MT11:09 PM CT12:09 AM ET5:09 GMT13:09 10:09 PM MST12:09 AM EST9:09 UAE06:090:09 ET11:09 PM CTNaN:� - Paul had 20 points and a season-high 20 assists and the Los Angeles Clippers beat the New Orleans Pelicans 133-105 on Saturday night with their highest offensive output of the season.

Dec. 5 5:56 AM PT6:56 AM MT7:56 AM CT8:56 AM ET13:56 GMT21:56 6:56 AM MST8:56 AM EST17:56 UAE14:568:56 ET7:56 AM CTNaN:� - Paul had 18 points and 11 assists in Sunday's loss to the Pacers.

Dec. 2 8:06 PM PT9:06 PM MT10:06 PM CT11:06 PM ET4:06 GMT12:06 9:06 PM MST11:06 PM EST8:06 UAE05:0623:06 ET10:06 PM CTNaN:� - Paul had 17 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds Friday.
Analysis: Paul, who nearly posted his second triple-double in three games, is averaging what would be a career-high 5.3 rebounds. He's made 29 consecutive free throws.
Dec. 1 8:14 PM PT9:14 PM MT10:14 PM CT11:14 PM ET4:14 GMT12:14 9:14 PM MST11:14 PM EST8:14 UAE05:1423:14 ET10:14 PM CTNaN:� - One game after a triple-double, Paul was again productive with 16 points, nine assists and six rebounds Thursday at Cleveland.

Nov. 30 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET5:16 GMT13:16 10:16 PM MST12:16 AM EST9:16 UAE06:160:16 ET11:16 PM CTNaN:� - Paul registered his first triple-double of the season with 26 points, 13 assists and 10 rebounds, though it still wasn't quite enough to prevent the Clippers from Tuesday's double-overtime loss in Brooklyn.
Analysis: Paul's scoring numbers had been a bit down lately, as he entered the contest averaging 14.9 points over his previous seven games, but he took on an increased role on a night the Clips rested Blake Griffin. The star point guard has still been a major asset in several other fantasy categories, particularly steals and assists.
Nov. 27 5:56 PM PT6:56 PM MT7:56 PM CT8:56 PM ET1:56 GMT9:56 6:56 PM MST8:56 PM EST5:56 UAE (+1)02:5620:56 ET7:56 PM CTNaN:� - Paul had 13 points, four assists and four rebounds in Sunday's loss at Indiana.
Analysis: Most disappointing was Paul's four turnovers, giving him at least that many in four of the last five games. The star guard is also struggling with his shot, shooting 5 for 20 in the last two games, including 1 for 10 from 3-point range.
Nov. 23 8:17 PM PT9:17 PM MT10:17 PM CT11:17 PM ET4:17 GMT12:17 9:17 PM MST11:17 PM EST8:17 UAE05:1723:17 ET10:17 PM CTNaN:� - Paul tallied 18 points with four assists and four steals before taking a seat after logging 26 minutes in the Clippers' easy victory at Dallas.

Nov. 22 11:05 PM PT12:05 AM MT1:05 AM CT2:05 AM ET7:05 GMT15:05 12:05 AM MST2:05 AM EST11:05 UAE08:052:05 ET1:05 AM CTNaN:� - Paul had 26 points and tied a season high with 12 assists in Monday's win over the Raptors.

Nov. 19 8:31 AM PT9:31 AM MT10:31 AM CT11:31 AM ET16:31 GMT0:31 9:31 AM MST11:31 AM EST20:31 UAE17:3111:31 ET10:31 AM CTNaN:� - Paul struggled with his shot Friday at Sacramento, but still managed 11 points along with a season-high 12 assists and three steals in the Clippers' 121-115 win.
Analysis: Paul was just 2 for 10 from the field and is 5 for 21 over his last two games. The All-Star point guard is still contributing greatly in other categories, particularly in the steals column. He's racked up 13 over the past three games and leads the NBA with 40 thus far.

Analysis: The Clippers are off to an NBA-best 10-1 start and Paul is a huge reason why. The star point guard leads the league with 32 steals and is shooting a sizzling 47.3 percent from 3-point range after going 4 of 6 from beyond the arc on Monday. He's also notched at least seven assists in 10 straight games.
Nov. 11 7:15 PM PT8:15 PM MT9:15 PM CT10:15 PM ET3:15 GMT11:15 8:15 PM MST10:15 PM EST7:15 UAE (+1)04:1522:15 ET9:15 PM CTNaN:� - Paul stepped up with 17 points, 10 assists and six rebounds in Friday's 110-108 win over the Thunder.

Nov. 8 9:07 PM PT10:07 PM MT11:07 PM CT12:07 AM ET5:07 GMT13:07 10:07 PM MST12:07 AM EST9:07 UAE06:070:07 ET11:07 PM CTNaN:� - Paul had another terrific effort with 24 points on 8-of-10 shooting - including 5 for 5 from long range - with eight assists, six rebounds and two steals Monday in a rout of Detroit.
Analysis: Paul bounced back after he was limited to nine points in Saturday's win over the Spurs, and had his best shooting game of the season. He's been more assertive on the boards this season, averaging 6.0 rebounds after he had 4.2 last season. The Clippers are a well-oiled machine right now and that's great news for Paul's fantasy owners.

Analysis: Paul had totaled just six turnovers during the Clippers' 3-0 start. ''My job is to orchestrate the offense, and I had some terrible turnovers down the stretch,'' he said after Los Angeles' first loss. He's yet to have 10 assists in a game - his average last season.
Nov. 1 9:22 PM PT10:22 PM MT11:22 PM CT12:22 AM ET4:22 GMT12:22 9:22 PM MST11:22 PM EST8:22 UAE05:220:22 ET10:22 PM CTNaN:� - Paul rebounded from a dismal game with 24 points on 8-of-15 shooting, eight assists and five rebounds Monday in a 116-98 win over Phoenix.
