Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul will miss his second straight game when the team takes on the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.

Paul will continue to rest a bruised right kneecap, which he suffered in the Clippers' loss to Orlando on Saturday. The injury forced him to miss the last game for Los Angeles, a win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

The eight-year veteran has averaged 16.8 points and 9.7 assists over 37 games this season.
