Chris Paul could return from his separated right shoulder injury on Friday against the Toronto Raptors.

Paul has sat out 16 games due to the injury. Paul hasn't practiced with the Los Angeles Clippers, but he has done some shooting and running drills on his own.

"He hasn't had any contact," Doc Rivers said. "But I would say hopefully by the end of the week, I'm assuming he will be. I doubt if we practice. That's the problem… But we can always do three-on-three stuff."
