Chris Paul expected to be ready for Phoenix Suns training camp after wrist surgery, source says

Point guard Chris Paul is expected to be ready for the start of training camp next season with the Phoenix Suns after having left wrist surgery, a source told ESPN's The Undefeated on Monday.

Paul had the wrist surgery recently after the NBA Finals, the source said. The 36-year-old was seen wearing tape on his left wrist during the 2020 NBA Finals.

The 16-year NBA veteran averaged 21.8 points on 54.4% shooting and 8.2 assists per game for the Suns during the NBA Finals. The 11-time NBA All-Star also had a right hand and shoulder injury and took a hiatus due to COVID-19 during the 2021 NBA playoffs as well.

On Monday, Paul agreed to stay with the Western Conference champions on a new four-year deal that could be worth as much as $120 million, his agents Steve Heumann and Ty Sullivan told ESPN Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski.
