Paul, who joined the Rockets via trade over the summer after spending six seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, missed Houston's second game of the season on Wednesday night against Sacramento. And after knocking off the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors on opening night, they hype didn't fade. Not because the Rockets have underperformed, though, but because their prized offseason acquisition will likely sit out the next month with a lingering knee issue. The team ruled him out for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.

The Houston Rockets big off-season acquisition, Chris Paul, who is now dealing with a knee injury, could be out for quite a while.

Life in the fast lane: Michigan State's Scott arrested again
According to court records, he eventually pleaded no contest to driving without a valid license, which carries a lesser charge. In July 2016, Scott was cited for having open intoxicants in his vehicle, Michigan Secretary of State records show.

The Rockets have now been dealt a big blow as the point guard could miss up to a month with a knee injury, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times. And, according to ESPN, one of the potential targets is recently waived veteran Jameer Nelson. He averaged 9.2 points and five assists while shooting 44 percent from the field. Houston has said the injury is nothing too serious, but the team is choosing to be careful with how it approaches Paul. For now, though, that doesn't seem like an issue.

The only downside to those victories was the limited time Chris Paul was able to spend on the court as he followed up a 33-minute outing against the Warriors by sitting out of the Kings game.
