Recovering from knee surgery, two-way player CJ Wilcox will suit up for the G-League’s Santa Cruz Warriors, Trail Blazers President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey announced today:

Wilcox, 26, played four seasons at the University of Washington before being drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers in 2014. He signed a two-way contract with Trail Blazers on August 9, but has been sidelined after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in October.

Wilcox (6-5, 195) was originally assigned to the G League’s Erie Bayhawks by the Clippers last season prior to joining Portland.

Wilcox not only overcame injury but personal strife as the guard detailed in a thank you to the organization he sent out last Friday.

This comes just days after the Blazers assigned rookie forward Caleb Swanigan to the G-League’s Canton Charge. Portland’s other two-way player, Wade Baldwin, is currently playing for the G-League’s Texas Legends.

Blazer’s Edge editor Eric Griffith provided specifics on the transfer process:
