Blazers guard CJ McCollum will miss at least 4 weeks with a fractured left foot. The Blazers confirmed the hairline fracture in his foot as well as a midfoot sprain.
CJ injured his foot Saturday during the 1st quarter of the Blazers 112 – 106 win over Atlanta. McCollum went for a layup and Atlanta center Clint Capella who was contesting the shot landed on McCollum foot twisting it sideways.
CJ McCollum played the remainder of the half before leaving at halftime. The Blazers will opt to place CJ in a walking boot in place of surgery for the next four weeks in hopes that the fracture heals on its own. He will be reassessed after that time.
The Blazers are already without Center Jusuf Nurkic (fractured right wrist) and center/power forward Zach Collins (ankle).
