Rockets' Chris Paul still dealing with bruised left knee

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) Houston guard Chris Paul is out for the Rockets' game in Sacramento on Wednesday night because of a bruised left knee and coach Mike D'Antoni isn't counting on him Saturday for the home opener against Dallas.

"It's not a concern, it's just nagging," D'Antoni said before the game against the Kings. "We'll sit him until the training staff thinks he's ready to go and try to get over it totally."

Eric Gordon was to start in place of Paul, who still could be ready by Saturday but D'Antoni said, "I think he's still in play but I think it's hard."
