Chris Paul said Wednesday morning that his Grade 3 AC joint right shoulder separation “hasn’t healed” yet and that he’s not sure when he’ll return to play for the Clippers.

Paul, out since Jan. 3 with the injury, joined the Clippers on Tuesday for the rest of their road trip.

“It’s still in the healing process,” Paul said.

The original timetable had Paul out up to six weeks. Under that scenario, Paul would make his return around Feb. 14.

Asked if he was ahead or schedule to return, Paul said: “I don’t have a clue.”

Paul said the pain in his shoulder is still “a little here and there.”

“But it’s feeling a lot better,” he said. “I know that.”

Paul said he did some rehabilitation on his shoulder while back in Los Angeles.

But the right-handed shooting Paul said he still can’t shoot a basketball.

“I’m still trying to get the range of motion where I want it at,” Paul said. “Right now, I guess the only good thing about this thing is nothing happened to my legs. So I’ve been able to do conditioning and all that type of stuff.”
