Hornets point guard Chris Paul returned to practice for the first time in a month Tuesday to test his sprained right ankle.

Paul has been sidelined since severely spraining the ankle when he came down on the foot of Seattle's Johan Petro in a game on Dec. 26.

"I think it's one of those things that I'm still just going to have to get comfortable with. This right here helped out a lot," Paul said Tuesday. "With an injury like this -- this being my first time -- you always second-guess it."

New Orleans has gone 8-9 without its leading scorer, but has won three straight to start its current five-game homestand. The Hornets host Philadelphia on Wednesday and Minnesota on Friday.


Aw, Here It Goes!
They need him to return to the line up as soon as possible, they have so many injuries already, but getting Paul back in the line-up is a huge step in the right direction.
