Chris Paul Out for Game 5 Against Nuggets Due to Groin Injury as Suns Push Series to Tied Standings

The Phoenix Suns' Chris Paul will be unable to participate in Game 5 against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night due to a groin injury. "Paul suffered the injury late in the third quarter in Game 2 last week and missed the rest of the game," the team announced. "He also sat out Games 3 and 4."

Despite his absence, the Suns have managed to tie the series at 2-2, thanks to impressive wins in Games 3 and 4. Paul has been having a great postseason overall, averaging 12.4 points and 7.4 assists.

It's unclear when the All-Star guard will return to action, but one thing is certain: the Suns are facing an uphill battle without him. As the team's leader, his veteran presence has been integral to their success.
