Los Angeles Clippers All-Star guard Chris Paul will not play in a Tuesday night game against the Utah Jazz due to a left hamstring strain, according to Jazz.com.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro said that Paul has "no timetable" for a return at this point.
Paul suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of Saturday's 102-94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. Paul underwent an MRI on Sunday which revealed no major results. He was listed as day-to-day by the Clippers.
The Jazz game marks the second game of the Clippers' first back-to-back-to-back of the season. The Clippers beat the New Jersey Nets on Monday night and will face the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.
In Paul's absence, the Clippers are expected to use a starting backcourt of Chauncey Billups and Randy Foye with recent D-League call-up Courtney Fortson used sparingly off the bench. Reserve guard Mo Williams is expected to sit with a minor foot injury and second-year guard Eric Bledsoe is sidelined with a longer-term knee injury.
On the season, Paul, 26, is averaging 18.0 points, 8.4 assists and 2.8 steals per game in 37.3 minutes per game.
