CJ McCollum remains unavailable for the Portland Path Blazers when they host the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday. But his presence at Moda Center is currently a welcome sight for Rip City and its fans.

The 29-year-old scorer made his first public appearance given that suffering a hairline fracture in his left foot. Using a protective walking boot, McCollum was seen polishing his manages and even attempted a 3-pointer off of one leg. Here’s the clip.

The Blazers franchise is undoubtedly no stranger to handling the injury bug for several years. This season hasn’t been any different, as CJ McCollum and starting center Jusuf Nurkic are both anticipated to miss out on considerable time in the 2020-21 campaign.

While McCollum’s most current setback is stressing for Sports jackets fans given that he’s had foot problems in the past, the team is still fortunate that their star guard did not have to go under the knife for this one.

” The seriousness of it is different. It does not need surgical treatment. It’s a various part of the foot. A Jones fracture is what I had previously – it’s a very typical sports injury. This injury that I have [now] is really distinct because of how I got it– it’s not a contact injury, it’s not a direct effect to the foot,” McCollum described earlier.

McCollum was balancing a career-best 26.7 points on 47.4 percent shooting from the field and 44.1 percent from deep in 13 games played prior to his injury. Portland has actually stayed up until now in his lack, hanging on to the 5th area in the Western Conference Standings with a 13-10 slate.
