Houston Rockets point guard Chris Paul is dealing with an apparent leg injury suffered late in his team's game-five win over the Golden State Warriors.

The Rockets pulled off a 98-94 win to take a 3-2 lead in the Western Conference finals, but Paul was hurt late on Thursday.

After driving for a layup, he collided with Warriors guard Quinn Cook and came up grabbing his right hamstring. He stayed on the sidelines for the final 22.4 seconds.

Paul received treatment on his right hamstring immediately following the game and did not speak to the media.

The Rockets announced Friday that Paul will miss Saturday's Game 6.

Paul finished with 20 points, seven rebounds and six assists to help Houston take a 3-2 series lead.
