Chris Paul is not with the team for Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.

J.J. Redick and Blake Griffin are also not with the team. The Clippers can still move up to the two seed with a win and a Thunder loss, so they apparently would rather rest their guys tonight. With Paul out, Darren Collison is likely looking at a very busy night.
Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong will man the frontcourt for the Warriors, whose frontcourt is extremely short-handed without O'Neal, David Lee (rest), Draymond Green (rest) and Andrew Bogut (ribs).
Nene will play on Wednesday but he has "insisted" that the Wizards keep him under 20 minutes.
He recently returned from a sprained MCL which he tweaked in his first game back, and Washington will proceed with due caution. He would sit out entirely if there were nothing at stake, but a win combined with a Nets loss would shift Washington up a seed in the playoff standings.
