On the heels of sweeping the Denver Nuggets to advance to the Western Conference finals, Chris Paul has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols and is out indefinitely.
This is a huge blow to the Phoenix Suns considering the Western Conference finals is scheduled to start next week.
The protocols are the league’s playbook for handling all matters related to the coronavirus this season.
There have been examples of players missing multiple weeks after positive COVID-19 tests; there have also been examples of players missing very short amounts of time for matters such as contact tracing investigations.
The good news is if Chris Paul is already vaccinated against COVID-19 he could be facing a shorter absence from the team.
Sending prayers and good vibes to Chris for a speedy recovery.
