Suns say Paul in protocols, status for West finals unclear

Phoenix guard Chris Paul has entered the NBA's health and safety protocols, the Suns said Wednesday, and it is unclear whether he'll be available for the start of the Western Conference finals next week.

The Suns said Paul's status will be evaluated again Saturday. The earliest possible start date for the West finals is Sunday; that series schedule is contingent on when the other West semifinal between the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers ends.

Paul has been vaccinated against COVID-19, said a person with knowledge of the situation, speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of privacy concerns. And that may mean that Paul could be cleared to return more quickly than some who tested positive earlier this season before vaccines were readily available; it wasn't uncommon for players who entered the protocols to miss two weeks or more.
