The Los Angeles Clippers All-Star point guard fractured his left index finger while scrimmaging with teammates on Saturday, knocking him out of his team’s exhibition contest with the Charlotte Hornets. The Clippers lost that game, played in Shenzhen, China, and Paul seems to hardly be bothered with the setback.
