LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Clippers have been without Norman Powell for the last seven games, and they will continue to be for at least the next week.

Ahead of Sunday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Clippers announced Powell would continue to go through treatment and therapy on his injured left shoulder and that his return-to-play timeline will be assessed again by the team in another week.

Powell, who suffered the left shoulder subluxation on March 2 vs. the Golden State Warriors, is expected to miss at least the next two games, both against the Oklahoma City Thunder, as he recovers.

Here's the play where Powell appeared the suffer the injury:

Despite being labeled as out and undergoing treatment, Norman Powell had been undergoing an intense pregame workouts with Clippers assistant coaches. The latest workout featured a majority of one-on-one drills, while also including spot-up shooting, off-the-dribble work, and some light three-on-three work:

The Clippers have won five of the seven games without Powell, including a four-game win streak, and head coach Tyronn Lue appeared to find his ideal rotation.

Lue said he has some concerns regarding adding Norman Powell into the rotation considering how well the team had been playing, but noted how important he is to what the Clippers hope to do this postseason.

“I mean, we always have concerns,” Tyronn Lue said. “Norm's a big part of what we've done all year. And so when a guy's out this long and then you kind of go on a streak and you're playing good basketball, you’re always concerned about it. But he sees how we're playing. We're playing the right way and he's been great for us all year and so it shouldn't — it won't be hard to incorporate him back.

“Just getting him healthy is the most important thing and we just want to make sure he gets enough games in so it won't happen like it did last year when he had to come back for those last two play-in games — he had no rhythm, he hadn't played in a while and so it really was unfair to him. So just hoping we can get him back sooner than later.”

Powell's re-evaluation date may be this Friday, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll be ready to return right away. Following the Clippers' two game series against the Oklahoma City Thunder, they'll have just eight games remaining — four at home and four on the road.

Entering Monday, the Clippers are 37-34 and the 5-seed in the Western Conference. They sit just a half-game behind the Phoenix Suns for the No. 4 seed, but also sit just 2.5 games ahead of the No. 8 Oklahoma City Thunder.

In 54 appearances this season, Norman Powell has averaged 16.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 2.0 3-pointers on 47.5 percent shooting from the field and 41.0 percent from 3-point range.
