Clippers Coach Doc Rivers said Wednesday that Chris Paul (strained right groin) and J.J. Redick (back spasms) are questionable for Thursday’s game against the undefeated Golden State Warriors at Staples Center.

“I would say neither are probable, but we’ll see,” Rivers said.

Both Paul and Redick have missed the team’s past two games because of injuries, though Paul said before Tuesday’s practice that his strain is “definitely getting better” and that he wants to play against the Warriors, “no question.”

Rivers said that Paul didn’t do much in Tuesday’s practice, only participating in “skeleton stuff.” Redick did not participate at all. The coach said Wednesday that he was uncertain whether they’d partake in the day’s practice.
