Chris Paul 'a full go' for Game 3 vs Lakers

Posted on May 28, 2021

Phoenix’s first potential championship bid in over a decade received a severe blow in Game 1 when Chris Paul went down with a right shoulder contusion that has limited him ever since.

After another 48 hours’ worth of rest and treatment, the 10-time All-Star will give it another go in Game 3 against the Lakers on Thursday (10 ET, TNT).

“He’s gotten better over the last couple of days and he is a full go tonight,” said Suns coach Monty Williams.

Williams added he would “keep a close eye on him.” Paul played in just 22 minutes in Phoenix’s 109-102 Game 2 loss and was clearly limited, shooting 2-for-5 and committing three turnovers to five assists.

The Suns and Lakers entered Thursday tied 1-1 in their best-of-seven first-round series.
