Chris Paul's strained adductor muscle is not related to the knee issue that cause him to miss 14 games.

Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul was upgraded to doubutful to play Christmas night in Oklahoma City, while center Clint Capela upgraded to questionable, reports Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Paul suffered a left adductor strain against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night and missed Friday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Houston has lost its last two games after a 14-game winning streak that coincided with Paul's return from monthlong absence due to a left knee contusion.

In the 16 games he has played this season, Paul is averaging 17.1 points with 9.0 assists while shooting 47.7 percent shooting from the field.
