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."

LOS ANGELES — On the one hand, they are two global icons.   On the other hand Thursday night at Staples Center, they were just teammates talking on the bench, almost no one noticing them furthering a new relationship that is meaning more and more on a private level to both mentor and student.    Kobe Bryant, knees encased in ice packs and done testing his body in the Los Angeles Lakers' second exhibition game, was using the fourth quarter to do what he was ...

LA Clippers owner Steve Ballmer is a lot more engaging with his team’s fanbase than Donald Sterling ever was. He’s also more demanding. Ballmer asked the Clipper faithful to arrive early at Staples Center, soul-crushing Los Angeles traffic and being fashionably late be damned. Per the LA Times: “They said the first quarter can be a little lonely,” Ballmer said.   While acknowledging that he wasn’t an expert in Los Angeles traffic, Ballmer ...

Unlocking Andrew Bogut Is Key to the Golden State Warriors' Success

Oct 9 2014 6:20pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Steve Kerr remains mostly unproven as an NBA head coach, but he gets an early point in his favor for recognizing the best way to unleash the Golden State Warriors' offensive potential: Get Andrew Bogut the rock. As we'll see, letting the big Aussie play a key role in the offense is an obvious move. But when you're a veritable coaching newborn, you have to make sure you nail the obvious stuff. After Bogut balled out against the Los Ange ...
