The Phoenix Suns are hopeful Chris Paul will be cleared from the NBA's COVID-19 health and protocols at some point early in the Western Conference Finals.

Paul is quarantining in Los Angeles and has been symptom-free since testing positive for COVID-19 last week.

The Suns lead the Los Angeles Clippers 1-0 in their series. 

Monty Williams said Paul’s return is unknown.

“It’s just a day-to-day thing with him right now,” Williams said after the game. “I probably drive the people here crazy with that, but that’s the way it is. We’re hopeful that any day now we hear he can ramp up and get back with us. But right now, he’s in the protocol.”
