DALLAS, TX - JANUARY 3: Chris Paul #3 of the Los Angeles Clippers dribbles the ball against the Dallas …

DALLAS (AP) -- Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul will miss three to five weeks after separating his right shoulder in a game against Dallas.

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.

Paul scored 19 points in the first half and made his first five shots, all from 3-point range.

The Clippers play at San Antonio on Saturday night.
