Though he declined to comment following their 123-90 loss, Paul reportedly sustained a left quad injury, according to Andscape’s Marc J. Spears.

It’s unknown when Paul injured his quad or what his recovery will look like.

Paul finished with 10 points and four assists while shooting 4-of-8 from the field in the loss. Though he dropped 28 points and shot 11-of-16 from the field in Phoenix’s Game 2 win, he was held to no more than 13 points per game the rest of the way.

There is at least a little bit of good news for the Suns.

Paul isn’t ready to quit just yet.

“We’ll be right back here next year… I’m not retiring,” he said after the game, via ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

The 37-year-old just wrapped up his 17th season in the league, and his second with the Suns. He averaged 14.7 points and 10.8 assists throughout the regular season while averaging nearly 33 minutes per game and picking up his 12th All-Star nod.

While he’s undoubtedly nearing the end of his career, Paul isn’t done chasing a title before retirement. And with the way Phoenix is ​​set up, they’ll be in another good spot to make a run at it next spring.
