Chris Paul (knee) is listed as a game-time decision ahead of Tuesday night's contest against the Mavericks.

On Monday, Paul admitted to having a little bit of swelling in his left knee after bumping it on Saturday night. He appears to be on the good side of a game-time call, but the Clippers are on a back-to-back. "I think he'll be able to play," coach Vinny Del Negro said. "How effective is he going to be? I know he was pretty sore [Monday]. If he doesn't play tomorrow night, hopefully he'll be ready for New Orleans. I don't want him to play half-speed out there and have a setback. I feel he'll be out there. I just don't know how much and how sore he'll be." Owners can protect themselves by adding explosive backup Eric Bledsoe.
