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."

Why Anthony Davis Is the Perfect Power Forward for the Modern-Day NBA

Nike Basketball, Anthony Davis, Foot Locker And Mayor Mitch Landrieu Celebrate NOLA FOR LIFE Midnight Basketball Program
Think of all the power forwards in the league. It's an eclectic bunch. A lot of different skill sets and sizes, superstars and specialists alike. It's one of the league's deepest positions, trailing only point guard.  Now think of all those power forwards, and weed out all the players who can't do these two things simultaneously: protect the rim defensively and space the floor offensively. If they do one but not the other, t ...

Washington Wizards v Boston Celtics
After enjoying 44 regular-season wins and their second playoff series win since 1982, the Washington Wizards no longer have a true sleeper status to mask their ascent or cushion a potential fall. At least, they shouldn't have one. A subtle, savvy offseason netted them a number of useful parts, all of which will aid their attempt to transform from Eastern Conference pests to full-fledged contenders. ...

Jeremy Lin Visits Taipei
Considering a couple of the contracts they have on the books, you can't blame the Los Angeles Lakers for being afraid of buyer's remorse. They remain extremely cautious in their search for a head coach. They're the only team in the NBA without one, despite having interviewed Byron Scott three times. Other names in the hunt include Mike Dunleavy and Kurt Rambis, but no one seems to have gained the same level of traction as Sc ...

Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Lakers
The Los Angeles Lakers' summer makeover has included the return of several familiar faces, but Kendall Marshall won't be one of them. The organization waived the 22-year-old on Friday with the hope of potentially bringing him back in the event he cleared waivers. That's not going to happen. Milwaukee's interest is well-founded. Marshall averaged eight points and an impressive 8.8 assists last season, solidifying his ...

A maximum contract offer isn't coming for Eric Bledsoe. The explosive but oft-injured point guard might think he's worth it, but the Phoenix Suns have no reason to pay that price. They are the only ones present at Bledsoe's restricted free-agency auction, and oh by the way, they have the power to match any offer he receives should another bidder surface unexpectedly. Phoenix has complete control of this situation, even if Bl ...
