LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clippers point guard Chris Paul won't play against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.
Paul missed his fourth game with the bruised right kneecap. The All-Star missed three road games last week, then returned to play against Washington on Saturday night and against Golden State on Monday. But it was clear the injury was still bothering him.
Paul scored just four points in the loss to the Warriors, missing six of seven shots.
Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro says there's no timetable for Paul's return.
``We have to look at the big picture and protect Chris as well,'' Del Negro said. ``He's just sore.''
Eric Bledsoe started in Paul's place.
