The Trail Blazers received good news regarding CJ McCollum’s potential return from injury on Saturday. According to Blazers Digital Reporter Casey Holdahl, McCollum’s status was upgraded to probable prior to Sunday’s contest against the Nuggets.

McCollum has been sidelined since suffering a popliteus strain in his left knee during last month’s clash between the Blazers and Spurs. Along with that update, reserve guard Seth Curry was also listed as probable. Curry missed Friday’s game in Denver with left tibia soreness.

NBC Sports Northwest’s Jamie Hudson delivered the good news on Curry shortly after McCollum’s status was updated.

Re-inserting both McCollum and Curry into the lineup will give the Blazers a much-need boost in their pursuit of home-court advantage in the Western Conference. Depending on Sunday’s results, Utah could surpass Portland in the standings.
