The Phoenix Suns may have Chris Paul back in Game 3 against the Los Angeles Clippers. Per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports and NBA TV, Paul has cleared the last of NBA’s health and safety protocols (a cardio examination) and intends to make his comeback in the upcoming match of the Western Conference Finals Thursday (24/6).

Paul had entered the NBA’s COVID-19 protocols on June 16 and some days following the Suns‘ sweep over the Denver Nuggets. Phoenix proceeded to win the first two games against the Clippers and can definitely hope to possibly extend their undefeated playoff run with Paul back for business.

Before he became sidelined, Paul was having a strong run in postseason, averaging 15.7 points, 8.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds.
