Houston Rockets fear Chris Paul could miss a month with knee injury

He did not play in Houston's second game of the season, a 105-100 win at Sacramento on Wednesday.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said the Rockets will hold out Chris Paul until his knee is "completely well".

Paul initially suffered the problem when he clashed knees with Memphis Grizzlies guard Mario Chalmers in pre-season.

Paul collided knees with Memphis Grizzlies guard Mario Chalmers on October 11, causing swelling that was bad enough to slow him down but not enough to keep him from playing three quarters in Houston's opening night 122-121 win over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday.

Marc Stein of The New York Times cites sources that say that Paul's injury could keep him out for a month.

CAVS: Point guard Derrick Rose was held out of Saturday night's game against the Orlando Magic because of a sprained left ankle.

Speaking to reporters prior to tonight's encounter with the Dallas Mavericks - a game he's already been ruled out for - D'Antoni seemed to suggest that the injury wasn't a major concern.

D'Antoni said Paul's status is "more week-to-week" than day-to-day, and that there's no firm timetable for a return.

The Texas-based outfit faces the Grizzlies in Houston on Monday before opening a three-game road trip. "This time, we're going to make sure it's 100 percent and go from there".
