Chris Paul: To Play Through Bruised Thumb
Update: Paul intends to take the court for Friday's Game 6 against Memphis, despite dealing with a bruised left thumb, the Orange County Register reports.

Recommendation: In an interview session following Tuesday's Game 5 loss, Paul's hand was wrapped in ice. Now that the nature of the concern has been revealed, his shot could in fact be hindered. However, he put up his most prolific offensive outing of the postseason Tuesday -- 35 points on 11-of-24 from the floor, including two three-pointers, and 11-for-11 at the stripe -- so adrenaline will likely wipe away the pain in Friday's do-or-die situation.
