Portland Trail Blazers player J McCollum had to retire in the 18th minute of Saturday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks with a problem in his left foot. Subsequent analyzes determined an injury that will keep him out for more than a month.

Blazers continues its particular ordeal with injuries. After 2020 to be forgotten in that sense, this new season has not brought a better horizon in that sense. CJ McCollum will be out indefinitely after sustaining a small fracture to the lateral wedge line in his left foot and a midfoot sprain, the franchise announced.

The escort will have to wear a protective walking boot and will be reassessed in four weeks, which does not mean that he will return in mid-February since the evolution of the fracture will determine his return.

McCollum was going through one of the best moments of his career, as evidenced by his averages of 26.7 points (47.3 from the field goal), 3.9 rebounds, and 5 assists. In the game against Atlanta Hawks, when he was injured after being on the court for 18 minutes, he had already 16 points.
