CJ McCollum has broken his outside bone in his foot, reportedly the same bone he broke his senior season at Lehigh.
Reported on Blazer twitter and Oregon Live: "X-ray's confirm Portland G CJ McCollum sustained a fractured 5th metatarsal bone in his left foot at practice on Saturday at the PF. A date for surgery has not been determined. Prognosis for his return will be made post surgery."
Remember when Martell Webster broke his 5th metatarsal twice and ended up playing like 5 minutes one season? He needed a second surgery after returning mid-season. It doomed his 2nd-from-last season in Portland. But he came back strong.
I truly hope CJ can come back stronger from this. But a lot of this season may be lost. Three month recovery or less would get CJ back on the floor around the start of 2014. There are 32 games on the schedule for the rest of this year.
