Chris Paul injury: Clippers' star will return, start vs. Wizards

The Washington Wizards will have to contend with the complete Los Angeles Clippers' roster. Star Chris Paul will return to LA's starting lineup after missing the last three games with a knee injury, according to the Wizards' official Twitter account.

Paul was truly a game-time decision for this one, as Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro did not specify that Paul would suit up in his pregame press conference.

Paul had missed the Clippers' previous three games with a bruised right kneecap, an injury originally suffered a week ago against the Orlando Magic. In his absence, Eric Bledsoe, the third-year player that starred at Kentucky with John Wall, was elevated into the starting lineup. He led the Clippers to road wins over the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets Minnesota Timberwolves.
