Rockets' Chris Paul: Will play Thursday

Paul is battling a sore left knee and will be rested during Wednesday's practice, but Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed the point guard will be available Thursday against the Clippers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The Rockets were apparently considering giving Paul the night off Thursday, but he'll instead sit out practice Wednesday in an effort to help preserve his body for Houston's upcoming playoff run. The 32-year-old played only 23 minutes in Monday's demolition of the Spurs, finishing with 18 points, nine assists and three rebounds.
