Paul will not be suspended for reportedly entering the Clippers' locker room following Monday's contest, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

After a tension-filled contest against the Clippers, there was some concern that Paul, among others, would be suspended by the NBA for their involvement in the conflicts during and after the game. Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green were both hit with two-game suspensions, while Paul and James Harden have not been penalized.

Paul scored 19 points (8-17 FG, 3-10 3PT) to go with six rebounds, seven assists and one block in 35 minutes during Monday's 113-102 loss to the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Overall, Paul had a solid night in his first game back at his former home in Los Angeles. Monday's stat line adds onto a seven game stretch in which the guard is averaging 22.4 points, 9.7 assists and 7.1 rebounds in James Harden's (hamstring) absence. With Harden possibly making a return later this week, Paul's numbers could see a significant hit. Over his last seven games, Paul is shooting, on average, 17.8 times from the floor, which is currently 3.7 more times than his season average. With Harden back in the lineup, expect Paul's opportunities to decrease slightly back to the range of 14.0 shots per game versus Harden's 21.2 shots.

Paul scored 25 points (9-18 FG, 2-6 3PT, 5-7 FT) to go with eight rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 27 minutes during Friday's 112-95 win against Phoenix.

EDGE Analysis

Paul continues to perform well without James Harden (hamstring) in the lineup. After leading all Houston scorers with 25 points Friday, the guard pushed his average over the last six games to 23.0 points without Harden. In addition, Paul is on a tear with 10.1 assists and 7.0 rebounds over this same span. As long as Harden is sidelined, expect Paul to remain in control in Houston in the meantime.

Paul scored 37 points (13-29 FG, 3-11 3PT, 8-8 FT) to go with seven rebounds, 11 assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 121-112 win against Portland.

EDGE Analysis

Without James Harden for the fifth consecutive game, Paul has not missed a beat without his backcourt running mate. Going back to his last six games, the guard is averaging a solid line of 23.5 points, 11.8 assists and 6.8 rebounds. While the Rockets have kept their heads above water without Harden, Paul has continued to flourish while running the show in his absence.

Paul posted 16 points (5-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 13 assists, seven rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Saturday's 108-101 loss to the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

The All-Star point guard's shot attempts went back down to an amount more reminiscent of when he shares the floor with James Harden (hamstring), but he still managed his second double-double over the last four games. Paul has continued feeding teammates with great success as well, as Saturday marked his third contest in the last four with double-digit dimes. While his overall scoring may see some fluctuations, Paul's expanded responsibilities while Harden remains sidelined -- along with his ability to provide above-average production in rebounds, assists and steals under normal circumstances -- have his fantasy stock peaking at the moment.

Paul totaled eight points (3-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 13 assists, seven rebounds and two steals across 32 minutes during a 116-98 win over the Magic on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Paul shot poorly for the third consecutive game but nearly triple-doubled in the blowout win. He is shooting a terrible 14-of-44 from the field over the last three games since his return from injury, but that should improve soon. With James Harden (hamstring) out of the lineup, Paul will have the opportunity to post huge numbers each game.

Paul collected 28 points (8-20 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 9-9 FT), 10 assists and six rebounds in 42 minutes during Sunday's 148-142 win over the Lakers.

EDGE Analysis

It was all up to Paul to close the deal after James Harden (hamstring) left the game, and he helped spur a Rockets team that has scored 140-plus points this week to a victory. With Paul's return to the lineup, the see-saw guessing of which elite player will generate the most production will continue, but if Harden's injury is serious, Paul will be the unquestioned top playmaker on the team.

Paul provided eight points (3-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), six assists, two steals and one rebound across 26 minutes during a 121-103 loss to the Wizards on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

In Paul's return from a three-game absence (leg), he struggled across 26 minutes, as the 27.3 field goal percentage marked one of his worst shooting displays of the season. He wasn't the only player on the team to struggle, though, as the team got blown out. Expect a better effort from Paul against the lowly Lakers on Sunday.

Paul (leg) will play about 25 minutes during Friday's contest against the Wizards, Zach Rosen of the Wizards' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul has missed the past three contests while nursing a left adductor strain, but has recovered enough to take the floor for limited action Friday. As a result, he'll seemingly unseat Eric Gordon from the starting five. Briante Weber will also probably see a reduced role.

Paul (leg) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game against Washington, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

A left adductor strain has kept Paul out of the last three games -- all Rockets losses -- but coach Mike D'Antoni said the 32-year-old will return to action either Friday or Sunday (vs. LAL). Whenever Paul does return, he'll unseat Eric Gordon in the starting lineup and continue to split playmaking duties with James Harden.
