Paul Returns To Practice

After suffering a concussion that sidelined him from the last two games, Hornets all-star PG Chris Paul returned to practice Thursday. The practice was not physical, and Paul has still not been cleared to play Saturday against Sacramento. Here is more from the AP and espn.com.

Chris Paul returned to practice on Thursday and even tossed up some extra free throws, 3-pointers and trick shots from behind the backboard afterward.

Whether Paul has recovered enough from his mild concussion to play against Sacramento on Saturday night could be determined as early as Friday when Hornets coach Monty Williams said the Hornets’ All-Star guard is scheduled for a neurological test.

“We didn’t do anything physical today” in practice, Williams said. “Today was a short day where we just walked through some things, got a ton of shots up and [Paul] participated in everything.”

Jarrett Jack has done a nice job in Paul’s absence, playing 40+ minutes a game. Despite increased playing time with Paul on the bench, Jack was glad to see his close friend and teammate back at practice.

“It was good to see him out here getting some shots up. We knew it was a matter of time. We all knew how tough he is, the injuries he’s battled through over the course of his career,” explained Jack. ”We knew this wasn’t going to keep him out too long. He was actually trying to play yesterday but they wouldn’t let him out there just for precautionary reasons.”

Paul did not meet with reporters after practice, but judging from Jack’s comments, Paul should return soon. New Orleans is currently sitting 7th in the Western Conference standings.
