Chris Haynes from Yahoo Sports is reporting that CJ McCollum received a PRP injection in his right knee during the offseason to relieve pain and alleviate minor swelling in his right knee:
Yahoo! Sources: Portland guard CJ McCollum received a PRP injection in the offseason to alleviate pain and swelling in right knee. https://t.co/Vr4JjX9j3P— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) October 2, 2018
In an accompanying article, Haynes writes that McCollum received the injection four months ago after experiencing persistent soreness in the knee during the latter half of Portland’s 2017-18 season.
McCollum underwent an MRI, but Blazer fans can breathe a sigh of relief in that regard.
An MRI revealed no structural damage and he was administered a PRP treatment early in the offseason in Los Angeles, sources said.
The NBA’s 2015-16 Most Improved Player was sidelined from basketball-related activities for nine weeks, sources said.
McCollum appears to be playing at a high level through his early preseason action, but this will be something that Blazer fans want to monitor throughout the season.
