NBA: Blazers star CJ McCollum set for time on the sidelines with fractured left foot

The Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum will be unavailable for a significant period of time after injuring his foot in Portland’s recent victory over the Hawks.

During an interview on Monday, Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts told reporters that CJ McCollum will have his foot injury re-evaluated in a week’s time, but might be out for longer than that.

According to the Blazers announcement late on Monday, McCollum has a small hairline fracture in his left foot along with a mid-foot sprain and is set to be out for at least four weeks. In the meantime, the star guard will be in a walking boot.

McCollum left the game against the Hawks at halftime as a precaution after suffering the injury and later underwent X-rays and an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.

The Blazers guard has already broken that foot twice during his career, so it makes sense that the Blazers want to be as cautious as possible, especially considering how well McCollum has been playing this season.

Without McCollum on Monday, the Blazers suffered a 21-point loss to the San Antonio Spurs, and looking ahead at their schedule, McCollum will most likely miss a minimum of three games, including back-to-back with the Memphis Grizzlies, a series that figures to have major playoff implications in the Western Conference.
