Apologies if this was already posted elsewhere:
Same foot. Same bone. Needs surgery. Hopefully surgery will go well and he’ll be back healthy in due course.October 6, 2013 at 7:18 am #11573
My prayers go with this young man. I was so looking forward to seeing him play against the warriors. Work hard and come back strong CJ!October 6, 2013 at 11:43 am #11576
This one really put a bow on what I’d have to consider the worst day in LU sports history – at least to my recollection.October 16, 2013 at 2:51 am #11749
It appears that CJ may not need surgery. Looking at ultrasound treatment.October 16, 2013 at 6:05 am #11757
That is awesome news. Wishing him a speedy recovery. Can’t wait to see him play in the Bay Area.October 31, 2013 at 1:42 pm #11958
Taken from the 2013-14 Portand Trail Blazers Player Previews report issued yesterday, Oct. 30th…….
Age: 22 | HT: 6-4 | WT: 200 | Pos.: G | Salary: $2,316,720
The Takeaway From Training Camp: In a training camp that was overwhelmingly positive, the one truly sour note was CJ McCollum once again breaking the fifth metatarsal in his left foot, the same injury that ended his career a Lehigh in January of his year.
Role For Trail Blazers In 2013-14: McCollum’s role will depend on how fast he can get up to speed after his foot, which was treated with a non-surgical ultrasound procedure, fully heals. Challenging Wesley Matthews for the starting two-guard position wasn’t entirely likely to begin with, and after the injury, that seems like an even longer shot.
Secret Scout: “When rookie CJ McCollum returns from his broken foot, he should be a guy who can play either guard spot and make some shots. Because of Williams’ presence, McCollum won’t face as much pressure to be that guy right away. But he has the potential to help them in the near future.”
The Trail Blazers Need Him To … : Be patient while his broken foot mends. He’ll surely be anxious to get his professional career started, but his long-term health must take first priority.November 12, 2013 at 1:35 pm #12109
CJ update, from this past Friday. Sounds like he’s progressing well, and starting to do some light work without the boot. Still not timetable on return:November 12, 2013 at 2:57 pm #12111
Per twitter CJ very optimistic for quick rehab to playing conditionDecember 11, 2013 at 2:24 pm #12628
CJ update from RipCity: He’s scheduled to get a CT scan and X-ray today, and it sounds like they are optimistic. If all is well, he may hit the floor in December. I’ll watch for updates on results.December 13, 2013 at 8:08 pm #12671December 19, 2013 at 11:38 am #12721

CJ gets back into action on Friday with the Idaho Stampede, the Trailblazers D League team. His NBA debut should be on the horizon.
Portland currently has a league best 24-5 record.January 2, 2014 at 11:38 am #12835
Do we REALLY have to suffer with a stupid post like this?
Absolutely NOTHING to do with Lehigh and a blatant politically charged comment.
Please remove so we can get back to all things Lehigh sports.January 2, 2014 at 12:45 pm #12837
Periodically all boards get hacked sales posts. Ignore them.
Much more important that we beat Gate and Andy hires good coaches.January 2, 2014 at 7:05 pm #12846
Word is that CJ may see his first bit of action with Portland’s D-League affiliate, the Idaho Stampede, this weekend. The team is scheduled to play the Rio Grande Vipers in a home and home series on Friday and Saturday.
You can catch the first and probably the second game, as well, on Youtube.
