Chris Paul injured his shoulder midway through the quarter vs the Mavericks in Dallas. Preliminary diagnosis is that he has a right shoulder sprain, and will not return to the game. Hopefully it is not a a severe sprain, but he will likely miss at least a couple of games.

If anybody can pull a team through this with the star PG going down it is Doc Rivers! Rondo went down and the Celtics went on a winning streak! Maybe the same thing happens to....

I like to be optimistic but never compare CP3 to Rondo. Not even comparable as players. Cp3 is so much better.

We have way to much talent to lose just because CP3 is out.

We just need guys to step up like they did tonight.

Last time cp3 was out crawford had a mega game. Need to

see a few of those in the coming games.

We played .500 basketball last time CP3 was out but we have Doc as our coach so hopefully things are different. At least our schedule is relatively soft.

Spurs are an expected loss even with CP3 we probably would lose that one. We should win against the Magic, Celtics and Lakers. Mavs are a toss up. Knicks/Indy b2b will be tough. Knicks actually are starting to look decent and Indy of course is tough especially off a b2b.

I wonder when CP3 will be back. Hope its only a minor shoulder sprain.

We have some talent, but not enough. When you lose your BEST player and a top 5 NBA star it really hurts. Hope he's not out too long or we could be in real trouble.

If our role players actually start to step it up we can do ok if CP3 is out for around 2 weeks. If they play like they are right now. Things could go downhill really quickly.

I think it's irresponsible of doc to give a timeline right away. Let the team have this win. What does he know?

Let him be further evaluated. Maybe it is 3-5 weeks but still there wasn't any need to give the timeline after a huge game .

And it could be worse depending what grade of separation it is. They'll know more in the next couple of days with further examination.

Does anyone know exactly what doc said? This is bad. We could plummet.

Doc said minimum 3-5 weeks, but will know for sure with further examinations.

I'm not talking about last season. I'm talking about when cp3 was out a few games this season.

I'm very sad. Did Chris Paul do something terrible in January one year? And that is why this is a cursed month for him? Crazy .

So they went from a strain to a separation?

6 weeks from now take us to the all star break which is 20 games without CP3. The clippers have not been playing well recently and without CP3 for that long... Idk what will happen, but better brace for a rough patch of games...

Well thank God we have Darren Collison. And Wayns is back. It hurts, but it is what it is.

Please just get better CP. Blake will hold it down for a while.

As much as I've talked about how much better we are with Jamal off the bench. We may have to do something different here. Have Jamal be even more aggressive starting...at least until JJ gets back. Maybe even start Jamal and Willie at the backcourt, so Collison can still do his thing off the bench. Maybe we see a lot of Barnes and Jackson out there at the same time...or Barnes and Jared. Maybe Bullock is close.

I don't know...just trying to figure out how we adjust without Paul for a while. Blake may have to do more playmaking as well as dominating. Ugh. I just don't know.

Blake needs to put the team on his back. If it's three weeks that isn't horrible.

This is Blake's test. It's it right here,

Its Griffin time... I think he's gonna average 30 a game while Chris is gone.

Blake actually stepped up last year when Paul went down (especially his assists). Problem is everybody else was inconsistent. But it's kind of a different team this year.
