Clippers’ Paul out 3-5 weeks with shoulder injury
DALLAS (AP) — Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul will miss three to five weeks after separating his right shoulder in a game against Dallas on Friday.
Paul was tripped by Mavericks guard Monta Ellis while dribbling around a screen in the third quarter. He rolled over and stayed on the floor holding his shoulder while trainers attended to him.
Paul is the Clippers’ second-leading scorer with 19.6 points per game. He’s also leading the NBA in assists with 11.3 per game.
