Before the calendar turns to 2018, the Houston Rockets expect to have their star point guard Chris Paul back in the lineup.

Paul, who has missed the team's last three games with a groin injury, will be possibly playing in Friday's game against the Washington Wizards or Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston coach Mike D'Antoni confirmed.

"He wants to play. Trying to hold him back is hard. We want to make sure he's 100 percent. I'm confident against the Lakers at home he'll be back. I'm hopeful for one of these two games," D'Antoni was quoted by the Houston Chronicle as saying on Friday.

The Rockets have been troubled by a series of injuries recently and the coach believes that it's just a part of game.

"We're going through a period. We had good luck at first, and now we're having bad luck," D'Antoni said. "We just have to deal with it. It's all part of a long season. We just have to hang in there."
