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."

How Will Kevin Love Trade Stack Up Against Recent Blockbuster Moves?

Jul 29 2014 6:16pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The consensus is that Kevin Love will be leaving the Minnesota Timberwolves at some point this offseason as part of a blockbuster trade. Unfortunately, that's where certainty on the topic stops. Nobody knows exactly when such a move will happen or how it will take shape. Where is also hazy, as a handful of teams have assets on offer, including the Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers and, maybe, the Golden State Warriors. The why part is easy: Love wants out. "No ma ...
