Scott Howard-Cooper, who covers the NBA at NBA.com, tweeted the following confirming Paul's status.
Chris Paul said he has been receiving constant treatment for the strained right hamstring but will play tonight.The game is almost a must win for the Clippers, who do not want to go down 0-2 with the next two games at Golden State. The Clippers will need another huge game from Paul if they want to even the series. Should Paul's injury act up, expect Darren Collison or Jamal Crawford to see additional minutes.
