LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Clippers now say Chris Paul will be out of the lineup for up to six weeks with a separated right shoulder.

The Clippers gave the prognosis Sunday after Paul had an MRI. However, the All-Star point guard won't need surgery.

Paul was injured in the third quarter of the Clippers' game at Dallas on Friday when he tripped over guard Monta Ellis.

Paul is averaging 19.6 points, an NBA-best 11.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game.
