Rockets to play home opener vs. Mavs without Paul

The Houston Rockets will show off a new look, but one that won't include star point guard Chris Paul when they make their 2017-18 home debut against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night.

Paul made a nice splash in his first game for the Rockets with 11 assists and four points in a national showcase road win over the championship-celebrating Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. But he played through pain in his right knee in the 33-minute effort, and 24 hours later sat out a 105-100 win up the road at Sacramento.

The Rockets announced Friday that Paul will not play in Saturday's home opener, and it was subsequently reported that he could miss two to four weeks rehabbing the injury he suffered banging knees with Memphis' Mario Chalmers on Oct. 11.
