Clippers' Chris Paul to return Sunday against the Sixers
The Clippers, who went 12-6 without him, will get Chris Paul back on Sunday.
Chris Paul, who has been out since Jan. 3 because of a separated right shoulder, will return Sunday against the 76ers, the team announced Saturday.
"He looked great," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. "We plan on playing him."
The Clippers have performed admirably without their All-Star point guard, going 12-6 in his absence.
"I think it's going to take Chris some time to get his rhythm back," Rivers said. "That's why I am hoping he is healthy and we can play him Sunday, have a practice on Tuesday and play him Wednesday. I think that helps. I think it's going to take a couple weeks for him to get his rhythm back, no doubt."
Paul, who will return a week before All-Star Weekend, plans on playing in the All-Star Game, something Rivers endorsed.
"I like him playing in the All-Star Game, personally," Rivers said. "I think this is a rare case where he's ready to play and the All-Star Game is probably the safest venue for him to play. I think it will just be a good thing for him to get up and down. It allows him to go up and down in an NBA game with really good players that don't play defense in the game so I think that would be very good."
In 34 games this season, Paul is averaging 19.6 points and 11.4 assists.
