Clippers host Timberwolves without Paul, Griffin

LOS ANGELES -- Chris Paul underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair torn ligaments in his left thumb, but the prognosis for the Los Angeles Clippers isn't as promising.

The damage the absence of the Los Angeles Clippers standout point guard won't be known for the next 6-to-8 weeks -- the amount of time Paul is expected to be sidelined -- but the challenge will be significant.

In the meantime, the Clippers (29-14) begin their journey without Paul and another contest without injured forward Blake Griffin (right knee surgery) when they meet the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night at Staples Center.
