Clippers' Chris Paul: Will play Tuesday

Paul (thumb) is active and will return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Kings, Rowan Kavner of Clippers.com reports.

Paul sat out Monday's game against the Jazz and had been nursing a sore thumb for a couple days, but it looks as if it is no longer bothering him as he and the rest of the Clippers regular starting lineup are set to go Tuesday. Paul's return will send Austin Rivers back to the bench as the backup.
