Clippers point guard Chris Paul is unlikely to play in Game 1 of the team's second round series at Houston on Monday. 

Paul battled through a hamstring injury on Saturday night to help lead the Clippers to a Game 7 win over San Antonio. 

Coach Doc Rivers praised Paul's toughness in the post-game press conference following Saturday's win, saying Paul was "just a tough kid. He's a street fighter. I mean, he really is. I love him to death because of his will." Rivers also expressed doubt that Paul would be ready to go on Monday.
