Will be a tough game, but Clippers will pull it out. I was wondering if JJ will be playing tonight.

LOS ANGELES -- Point guard Chris Paul, who has been sidelined since Jan. 3 with a separated right shoulder, likely will return to the starting lineup Sunday when the Los Angeles Clippers play the Philadelphia 76ers.

Clippers point guard Chris Paul hasn't played since suffering a separated right shoulder on Jan. 3. Paul has been participating in contact drills and shootarounds, but the Clippers have not had a full practice in almost two weeks, preventing him from practicing with the team.

The Clippers canceled practice Thursday and are expected to sit Paul for Friday's game against the Toronto Raptors. If Paul practices Saturday without any problems, he will play Sunday.

"He did some one-on-ones today at shootaround and looked pretty good, so I think he's very close," coach Doc Rivers said Wednesday. "I don't think he'll play Friday but he could play after that. He took contact today in one-on-ones, but it's still not a 5-on-5."

Paul was voted into the All-Star Game in New Orleans as a reserve and recently said he planned on playing in the game because it's in the city where he played his first six NBA seasons and his first All-Star Game in 2008.

"The All-Star Game is in New Orleans, and that's a part of me," Paul said. "That's where I played my very first All-Star Game, and anytime you have that opportunity, I'm not going to pass it up, because it's not guaranteed to happen next year."

Raptors-Clippers Preview

By ELI KABERON Posted Feb 06 2014 11:58PM Despite a monster performance from Blake Griffin, the Los Angeles Clippers dropped their first test of a challenging stretch and ended their home win streak at seven games.

The Clippers will try to get back on track Friday night when they host the Atlantic Division-leading Toronto Raptors in the second of a five-game homestand that features a handful of the NBA's elite.

Griffin scored a season-high 43 points and pulled down 16 rebounds Wednesday, but it wasn't enough in a 116-112 loss to Miami. The Heat, who lead the Southeast, were the first of several top teams that will visit during a homestand bridging the All-Star break.

The Clippers (34-18) also face Portland next Wednesday and then San Antonio after the break, though those teams may have to contend with point guard Chris Paul, who has been out with a separated shoulder since Jan. 3 but is likely to return Sunday against Philadelphia barring any setbacks in practice.

Los Angeles trailed by as many as 19 early on against the Heat before rallying to make it a one-possession game in the final minutes.

Los Angeles was also without guard J.J. Reddick, who sat out with a sore right hip, forcing Jamal Crawford into the starting lineup. Crawford played more than 46 minutes - his highest total since 2009 - and finished with 31 points. Griffin logged 43 minutes.

"The adrenaline is still going, so (Griffin and I) are alright. But I'm sure we'll feel it," Crawford said of the extended minutes. "We were down 19 in the first half and then down I think 17 with 16 minutes to go in the game. So, you can't do that against a team like that. We obviously turned the ball over too much. But, we'll take the good from it and continue to get better."

Los Angeles had 20 turnovers, resulting in 25 points for Miami, and following Monday's loss at Denver, has dropped back-to-back games for the first time since Paul went down.

The Clippers, sitting in first in the Pacific, are 3-6 against the NBA's other five division leaders. One of the three wins came Jan. 25 against the Raptors (26-23), who were torched for 37 points by Crawford in a 126-118 home loss.

Toronto forward Terrence Ross was outstanding in that one, tying a team record with 51 points on 16-of-29 shooting. Ross was 10 of 19 from 3-point range and added nine rebounds.

Since that loss to Los Angeles, the Raptors have won four of six. Five of those games have come on the road, including a 109-101 loss at Sacramento on Wednesday.

Kyle Lowry had 21 points, eight assists and seven rebounds for the Raptors, who lost the game primarily at the free throw line. They committed 35 fouls and the Kings were strong with a 41-of-51 performance at the stripe.

"(The Kings game) was one of the worst games we've played all year. We don't want to dwell on it, but we have to take from it and understand we can't play like that," said forward DeMar DeRozan. "We never could get a consistent run, consistent flow. They went to the line 51 times - that's the game right there."

The Clippers have won four of their last five versus the Raptors, including the last three meetings at Staples Center.

I wouldn't mind giving Bullock some major minutes for just one game just to see what he is able to do.. Its hard to gauge a player when they only play 5 minutes in a game where they haven't played the last 10..
