Paul out again for Clippers

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.
