CJ McCollum (knee) not travelling with team

CJ McCollum (knee) will not join his teammates on Portland's upcoming four-game roadie.

Fantasy Impact

McCollum will be out for at least a week and a half and there is talk he may not even be ready by the time the playoffs jump off. Also no reason for the Blazers to rush him back with Seth Curry subbing in capably. The lesser Curry is worth a look while CJ is out.

CJ McCollum should be re-evaluated soon

CJ McCollum has been participating lightly in practice and is expected to be re-evaluated this weekend.

Fantasy Impact

McCollum avoided a major injury and should return before the season is over. However, depending on Portland's playoff status, the team is likely to be patient and won't rush him back if he's not needed.

CJ McCollum (knee) will miss at least a week

CJ McCollum will miss at least a week of action after suffering a popliteus strain in his left knee. Rodney Hood, Seth Curry, and Evan Turner will all see additional minutes over the next few games.

Fantasy Impact

With McCollum out, Lillard and Nurkic will be leaned on more on the offensive end while Hood, Curry, Al Aminu, and Turner all get a boost in value. If I had to pick one, Hood would be a daily option over the next couple games.

CJ McCollum to have MRI on Sunday

CJ McCollum was carried off the court on Saturday night after an apparent leg injury. X-rays were negative after the game and will undergo an MRI on Sunday. Before the exit McCollum had recorded 10 points and five assists in 23 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

Teams relying on McCollum's production should make plans elsewhere for at least the next week. There is always hope that the injury looks worse than it is and CJ will be back when it matters most. However, give him a few days back in the lineup before throwing him into a starting role until we see the team isn't limiting his minutes.

CJ McCollum will not return against Spurs

CJ McCollum left Saturday's game with a left leg injury. He was helped off the court as you can see his left foot get twisted as he was coming down fighting for the ball. The team has stated he won't return.

Fantasy Impact

Not good news for McCollum owners. He was a solid piece down the stretch and you'll want to keep a close eye on him. Even if he returns there is a risk he'll be used in limited minutes as Portland will want him fresh for the NBA playoffs.
