NBA: Paul a game-time decision vs. Mavericks
NEW ORLEANS — Chris Paul's return to the New Orleans Hornets' lineup appears imminent.
Hornets spokesman Dennis Rogers says Paul is listed as a game-time decision for Monday night's home contest against the Dallas Mavericks.
Paul has missed the last 25 games since tearing the meniscus in his left knee in late January, an injury that required arthroscopic surgery. The Hornets have gone 8-17 during that stretch without him.
In 38 games, Paul has averaged 20.4 points and 11.2 assists this season. He was selected for his third-straight All-Star game, but did not participate because of his injury.
If Paul does not play against Dallas, he could return for Wednesday night's home game against Cleveland.
