Trail Blazers shooting guard CJ McCollum will miss at least four weeks with a hairline fracture and sprain in his left foot, the team announced in a statement.
Initial reports stated McCollum would miss at least a week with the injury, believed to be a sprain, as relayed by Blazers coach Terry Stotts on Monday. McCollum was expected to have the foot re-evaluated next week, Stotts said.
It was not known if that remains the case, in light of the late-night details provided by Charania.
McCollum, 29, suffered the injury Saturday vs. the Hawks, when Hawks center Clint Capela landed on McCollum’s foot when McCollum attempted a layup. McCollum did not return to the game after halftime.
The Blazers are coming off a 125-104 home loss to the Spurs on Monday.
McCollum is having an All-Star season with averages of 26.7 points, 5.0 assists and 3.9 rebounds. He will be fitted with a walking boot before being re-evaluated, the Blazers said.
