LOS ANGELES, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Los Angeles Clippers all-star point guard Chris Paul has a separated shoulder could miss up to six weeks, the team announced Sunday.

Paul's injury was originally diagnosed as a shoulder sprain, sustained during the Clippers' Friday victory over Dallas when he tripped over Mavericks guard Monta Ellis and landed awkwardly.

It was first anticipated Paul could be back as soon as three weeks, but a magnetic resonance imaging exam performed Sunday revealed the extent of the injury.

He was found to have suffered a grade 3 AC joint separation in his right shoulder.

The superstar guard averaged 19.6 points and 11.2 assists per game in 34 contests this season.
