DALLAS — Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul left Friday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks with an shoulder injury. Paul will miss at least three after separating his right shoulder, coach Doc Rivers said.
The Clippers play at San Antonio on Saturday.
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.
Team officials said Paul would not return to the game.
Paul scored 19 points in the first half and made his first five shots, all from 3-point range.
