NBA: LA Clippers G Chris Paul Out 6 Weeks with Separated Shoulder

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul will sit out the next six weeks after he separated his shoulder in a Jan. 3 game against the Dallas Mavericks.

Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul is out for the next six weeks. 

The Clippers' official website posted a press release on Jan. 6, which indicates the six-time NBA All-Star guard suffered a separated shoulder but will not require surgery. 

"The Los Angeles Clippers announced that point guard Chris Paul underwent an MRI today and was re-evaluated by team doctors. 

"Paul has been diagnosed with a Grade 3 AC joint separation and he will be out up to six weeks. No surgery is required for Paul, who suffered the injury in the third quarter of the Clippers' win over Dallas on Jan. 3." 

More specifically, Arash Markazi of ESPN Los Angeles reported on Jan. 6 that Paul sustained the injury "when he crashed to the floor after being fouled by Dallas guard Monta Ellis."

According to The Los Angeles Times, "The AC joint separation is an injury to the area connecting the collarbone with the front part of the shoulder blade, and a Grade 3 is considered the worst of the three grades."

The same report adds Paul must keep the affected shoulder immobilized for several weeks before doing range-of-motion work. Furthermore, the six-week timetable would mean he will only be eligible to play after the All-Star break, which is from Feb. 14-17. 

During that span, he will miss an estimated 20 games. 

With Paul temporarily out, Clippers head coach Doc Rivers told The Los Angeles Times the team will sign another guard to replace him. Los Angeles is looking at available free-agent point guards, guards from the NBA Development League and players based overseas.

The newspaper specifically stated the names of point guards Bobby Brown, who is currently playing for China's Dongguan Leopards, and 35-year-old Jamaal Tinsley, a former member of the Indiana Pacers, Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz, as possible replacements for Paul.

Meanwhile, Markazi also adds the Clippers will move backup point guard Darren Collison, who is averaging 8.6 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists, to the starting spot. 

Paul had been averaging 19.6 points, an NBA-leading 11.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds prior to his injury, per Markazi. 

All in all, Paul's teammate, high-flying forward Blake Griffin, declared the Clippers All-Star point guard as irreplaceable when he was interviewed by The Los Angeles Times.

"No one can replace Chris. Not his voice. Not his game. Everybody does things differently. We don't have any other guys that talk like Chris."

Which Los Angeles Clipper Will See the Biggest Role Shift in 2014-15?

Oct 27 2014 6:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A philosophical shift in the Los Angeles Clippers offense has been building for years, and this season should be the one where the shift is complete. Blake Griffin is ready for an expanded role, one that should at least split offensive playmaking responsibilities with Chris Paul. This is no slight to Paul, who had his best season since 2008-09, averaging 19.1 points, 10.7 assists and 2.5 steals per game ...

Jose Calderon has his work cut out for him in his first year wearing blue and orange. Assuming his calf strain doesn't prevent him from suiting up next Wednesday for opening night, Calderon is the likely choice for the New York Knicks' starting point guard.  A star he is not. But since creating shot opportunities for teammates is a responsibility shared by every single player in a triangle offense, it can take some pres ...
