Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul has a torn ligament in his left thumb and is expected to miss the next six-to-eight weeks. What It Means: Awful news for Paul and the Clippers as CP3 will undergo surgery, knocking him out until at least early-March. The point guard had just come back from a hamstring injury that cost him seven games too. Not coincidently, the Clips went 2-5 in those games. On a positive note, Blake Griffin is reported within a week or two from returning from knee surgery. With Paul sidelined, Austin Rivers will assume the starting point guard role....

Clippers' Chris Paul (thumb) undergoes successful surgery

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul underwent successful surgery on his thumb on Wednesday, and is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks as he recovers.

Look for Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers to see big increases in their roles until Paul is back. Missing Paul is likely going to be a big blow for the Clippers. His 8.7 nERD on the season is the best among Clippers players and ranks sixth in the NBA. Source: Rotoworld.com
