Chris Paul suffers right thumb fracture, out at least 6-8 weeks

Chris Paul has suffered a right thumb avulsion fracture, and he will be re-evaluated in six-to-eight weeks, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Paul suffered the thumb injury in Wednesday night's game against the Houston Rockets. This is a huge blow to the first-place Phoenix Suns and since Paul won't be re-evaluated again until mid-April, he'll miss a significant chunk of the season. 

"We're 48-10 and if we do miss some time, I know the guys are going to hold it down," Paul told ESPN's Brian Windhorst. "There's always going to be a frustration with injury. My hand surgeon is part of my family now."

This season, Paul is averaging 14.9 points, 10.7 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 1.9 steals and a three on .487/.330/.843 shooting splits.

At 48-10, the Suns have the best record in the NBA. Phoenix has the NBA's third-ranked offense (scoring 112.1 points per 100 possessions) and third-ranked defense (allowing 103.1 points per 100 possessions).
