NBA via Los Angeles Clippers(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles Clippers have officially listed point guard Chris Paul as questionable for Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets on Monday.

Doc Rivers is very concerned with Paul’s injury.

Yeah, yeah, very,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said Saturday night. “Someone is going to have to step up. I was thinking it’s funny how coaches think with three minutes left, I’m thinking, ‘OK, if we win this game, thank God I signed Lester [Hudson] because now you have two guards left.’ We almost went big, and then we would literally have no other guards left. That was the first thing I thought.”

“Chris may play or may not play the first game, but the game is Monday. My guess right now if I had to guess, I would say no, but I’m not sure.”

Paul suffered the injury in the 1st quarter of Game 7 against the Spurs and played injured throughout the entire game.

Obtained by ABC News(NEW YORK) — An upstate New York millionaire father of four who has been tried twice before for the 2001 killing of his wife is facing a jury for the third time, and a verdict could come Monday as deliberations resume.

Cal Harris, 53, of Spencer has been convicted twice before for the murder of his estranged wife Michele, who disappeared September 11, 2001, but both convictions were thrown out.

After her disappearance, no body or murder weapon was discovered, even after extensive searches of Harris’s 252-acre property in Tioga County. But police said forensics teams found blood in the house, which suggested Michele had been attacked by her husband, and a witness said he heard Harris threaten her that he would kill her.

The trial in Schoharie County Courthouse lasted 11 weeks, and the jury has already deliberated two days without reaching a verdict.

Harris was originally arrested in 2005 and was found guilty in July 2007 of second degree murder. Before sentencing, however, a witness came forward with new information, forcing the judge to throw out the conviction.

Harris was re-tried in 2009 and again convicted. But that conviction was also thrown out — three years later, this time by an appeals court that ruled a juror had been seated who expressed preconceived opinions about the case and certain testimony was admitted without the jury being warned it was hearsay.

In an interview with ABC News’ Matt Gutman in January, on the eve of his third trial, Cal Harris said he and his wife were ending their marriage, but he denied any involvement in his wife’s disappearance or death.

“Did you kill Michele?” Gutman asked.

“Absolutely not,” Harris said. “Absolutely not.”

His four children also said they believe their father is innocent.

“We didn’t have any doubt he wasn’t involved,” his son Tanner told ABC News.

“We feel like we need to tell people that he’s actually a really great guy and there’s no way he could have done something like this,” his daughter Cayla said.

The Harris children told ABC News that they have never even asked their father about that September night almost 15 years ago.

“[We] didn’t have to,” Taylor Harris said.

“From an indictment, to the first trial, to the second trial, and here I sit, here we sit having to face another trial.” Cal Harris said. “No one should have to go through this. No one.”

In a pair of posts to her verified Twitter account, Rawlings-Blake said that the curfew would be ended immediately. She thanked the citizens of Baltimore for their patience and reiterated that her goal was “to not have the curfew in place a single day longer than was necessary.”

Effective immediately, I have rescinded my order instituting a city-wide curfew.

Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images(BALTIMORE) — About 20 people were arrested Saturday night as dozens of people violated the 10 p.m. curfew still being enforced in Baltimore, after a day of large, peaceful demonstrations where many called for the order to be lifted.

Over 1,000 marchers gathered near North Avenue and Pennsylvania Avenue, the site of looting and rioting earlier in the week in response to the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered a spinal injury and later died while in police custody last month.

There were no clashes with police, unlike Friday night, when police enforced the curfew and arrested nearly 40 people.

The defiance of the curfew, which was put in place Tuesday, came after prosecutors announced charges against six police officers in Gray’s death, which was ruled a homicide. The six officers connected to the case faced a range of charges including several counts of manslaughter, second-degree assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced.

The most serious charge is second-degree depraved heart murder, which only Officer Caesar R. Goodson, Jr., the driver of the police van, faces.

During demonstrations Saturday, many people called for the curfew to be lifted, but Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said more time was needed to make sure that calm has been restored in the city.

“We all want to get back to normal and have the city running in the right direction,” Batts said. “We recognize the concerns over the curfew. For tonight, for everyone’s safety, we’re going to keep the curfew in place.”

State Police Colonel William Palozzi said that the decision to keep the curfew in place was made out of safety concerns.

“We just ask for patience as we move forward and continue to move in a safer direction for a safer city,” he said.

People in the crowd at the large, peaceful protest in Baltimore said the demonstration was about bigger change, beyond the issue of the six police officers charged in the Freddie Gray case. They talked about employment opportunities and about the problems that kids are finding with alternatives to crime out in the street.

People circulated through the crowds and others set up a table with voter registration cards in an effort to get people to sign up to vote. Those encouraging voter registration told people that if they registered, not only would they have the opportunity to choose future leadership but they also would have the opportunity to serve on criminal juries.

The Baltimore Police Department also used the rally Saturday as a way to do community outreach. Officers said they found that as they circulate through the crowd they can have personal contact with people who in some cases have been mistrusting in the past. In that way, some officers said, they hope to build a new relationship with this community.

Although many people called the demonstration a “victory rally,” at least one Baltimore resident said that may be premature.

“I feel like it ain’t over yet,” Baltimore resident Brian Watts said. “We’ve still got a lot — a lot to go.”
