Tuesday's marquee matchup between the West's two best teams just got a little less marquee.
Paul injuried the knee Jan. 12 against the Magic when he banged knees with J.J. Redick. As a result, he missed three consecutive games before returning Jan. 19 against the Wizards.
In Monday night's game against the Warriors, Paul was just 1-for-7 from the floor in 33 minutes.
Eric Bledsoe will start in Paul's place.
