Clippers Say Chris Paul Will Be Out Up To 6 Weeks

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (FOX 11 / AP) - Chris Paul will be out of the Los Angeles Clippers' lineup for up to six weeks with a separated right shoulder, but the All-Star point guard won't need surgery.

The Clippers gave the prognosis Sunday after Paul had an MRI.

Paul was injured in the third quarter of the Clippers' game at Dallas on Friday when he tripped over guard Monta Ellis.

Paul is averaging 19.6 points, an NBA-best 11.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game for the Pacific Division-leading Clippers, who were blown out by San Antonio on Saturday night in his absence.

Darren Collison is taking Paul's spot in the starting lineup for the Clippers, who open a four-game homestand Monday against Orlando.
