The All-Star point guard underwent knee surgery earlier today and will likely be out 1 to 2 months.
Paul leads the Hornets in scoring, assists and steals. The team is currently 2 games out of the 8th playoff spot in the Western conference with 33 left to play.
Though Paul is scheduled to come back to finish the season, I believe we won’t see him take the court again until preseason of the 2010-11 season.
Without much hope to make the playoffs, there is no need to risk injuring your top commodity, which Paul clearly is in the ‘Big Easy.’
