Chris Paul has surgery on thumb

Chris Paul point guard for the Los Angeles Clippers underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. 

Paul’s injury occurred last month in Las Vegas during Team USA’s training camp. Tuesday the surgery was preformed by Dr. Steven Shin a hand specialist at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopedic Clinic in Los Angeles.

Approximately 8 weeks is the amount of time Paul is expected to miss which would mean that he most likely would return for the Clippers opener Oct. 31 against Memphis. –BEAR
