OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul says he hopes to play in the All-Star game but it’s too early to know whether he’ll be healthy enough to return for the Feb. 16 contest in New Orleans.

Paul was announced as an All-Star reserve Thursday. He earned MVP honors after leading the West to a victory over the East in last year’s game.

Paul played his first six seasons in New Orleans. He has been out since separating his right shoulder in a win against Dallas on Jan. 3 and is expected to return sometime around the All-Star break.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said before his team played at the Golden State Warriors on Thursday night that he has no problem if Paul’s first game back is the All-Star game.
