NBA - Scoop Du Jour

The New Orleans Hornets are singing the blues right about now since the news coming out Louisiana is that Chris Paul(notes) is going to be out for one or two months because he apparently needs arthroscopic surgery for a cartilage tear in his left knee, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Paul will apparently have the surgery today. This could put him out till the final two weeks of the season. The injury reportedly came at the end of the loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday night when he fell into a photographer. It's the same knee that he had twisted on Wednesday against the Golden State Warriors. It'll be a while before Paul is back jumping rope let alone shooting hoops.

Looks like rookie point guard Darren Collison(notes) is suddenly getting his moment to shine.
