Portland's C.J. McCollum to miss at least six weeks with foot injury


We haven’t had a story about an injured member of the Portland Trail Blazers in, like, ten minutes or so, and we know that’s unacceptable for all you masochistic Portland fans out there, so here’s the latest news: Portland rookie guard C.J. McCollum, selected as the tenth pick in this year’s draft, will miss at least six weeks due to a broken bone in his left foot.

The statement from the team, courtesy of Blazer’s Edge:

Portland guard CJ McCollum successfully underwent a non-operative ultrasound procedure today to repair the fifth metatarsal fracture in his left foot. The procedure, which is designed to promote bone growth, was performed at the OrthoCarolina Foot and Ankle Institute in Charlotte, North Carolina by Dr. Robert Anderson.

 

McCollum will remain sidelined indefinitely and will be reevaluated in six weeks.

While the news certainly isn’t as bad as it could have been, it is indeed disheartening for Portland fans to hear. We wish McCollum the best in his recovery, and we look forward to seeing him on the court soon.
