Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters in Houston on Saturday that the team will hold Paul out until the knee is completely healed. The team has not offered any specifics on the injury, other than the knee is bruised.
D'Antoni said Paul's status is "more week-to-week" than day-to-day, and that there's no firm timetable for a return.
