CJ McCollum Fractures Left Foot, To Miss At Least 4 Weeks


Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum is expected to miss an extended period of time after fracturing his left foot in a game against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday (per ESPN).

Initially, team doctors reported McCollum’s injury as a foot sprain and he didn’t return after halftime. Additional imaging revealed that he has both a mid-foot sprain and a small hairline fracture “to the lateral cuneiform in his left foot,” possibly from when Hawks center Clint Capela stepped on his foot in the first quarter.

McCollum will be fitted with a walking boot and subsequently be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Now in his eighth NBA season, McCollum has gotten off to a sizzling hot start this season, averaging 26.7 points and 5.0 assists on .473 percent shooting from the field and .411 percent shooting from 3-point range. All career-highs.

After getting off to an 8-5 start, the Trail Blazers have dropped to sixth in the Western Conference in their first game without McCollum. They lost to the San Antonio Spurs on Monday in a 21-point drubbing.
