Chris Paul Out 3-5 Weeks (Shoulder)

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said the injury to the shoulder on the star's shooting arm Friday night was a separation. Earlier, the team had said it was a sprain.

Paul was tripped by Mavericks guard Monta Ellis while dribbling around a screen. He rolled over and stayed on the floor holding his shoulder while trainers attended to him.

After staying down for about a minute, Paul went to the locker room with 6:43 remaining in third quarter.
