The Rockets will be sweating on the health of Chris Paul after he left today's game against the Miami Heat with a hamstring injury.

The injury occurred in the second quarter as Paul had the ball stolen at mid-court by Miami's Derrick Jones Jr., immediately pulling up, grabbing his left hamstring.

"It'll be some time," coach Mike D'Antoni said post-game, confirming that Paul will undergo an MRI Friday morning.

The Rockets came into today's game riding a five-game win streak, with Paul instrumental in their recent run of form. The Rockets are 0-5 in games Paul has missed this season.

The 33-year -old suffered a right hamstring strain in last season's Conference Finals, missing Games 6 and 7 against the Golden State Warriors.

Paul played just 12 minutes in today's game, scoring four points before heading to the locker room.
