According to the Los Angeles Times, Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro has announced that Chris Paul will start in tonight’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers:

Clippers Coach Vinny Del Negro said he “expects” Chris Paul to start Wednesday night against the Lakers in their designated home game at Staples Center.

Paul had missed the last five games because of a strained left hamstring.

Del Negro said he didn’t know how many minutes Paul would play.

“I kind of have it in my mind a little bit,” Del Negro said. “But I want to see how he feels after I sit down and talk to him a little bit.”

Paul has missed the past 5 games with a hamstring injury. The Clippers have gone 3-2 in Paul’s absence.
