LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Chris Paul missed eight games with an ankle injury.

He returned to action on December 4th.  Let's just say he's looked the complete opposite of rusty.

Take a look at his numbers in the five games since he's returned from injury:

Maybe the only bad part about Paul's strong production since his return is this: the Bugs have won just three of the five games in which they've had CP3 back.

The next three games will be a challenge for New Orleans.  They'll lock up with the Detroit Pistons at home on December 16th, another home game on December 18th against the Denver Nuggets, and then a road game on December 20th against Toronto.
