An MRI on Friday revealed a Grade 2 strain to his left hamstring and ruled out a more serious injury.
Paul will be re-evaluated in two weeks, the Rockets said.
Paul has missed extended periods five times in his career with hamstring injuries, and timelines can always be shortened or extended based on the sensitivity of the healing processes with hamstrings.
Paul has missed a total of 19 games -- including the playoffs -- with hamstring injuries in his career, according to ESPN Stats & Information. His teams have gone 9-10 in those games.
Paul, 33, has averaged 15.6 points, 8 assists and 2.1 steals this season.
