Unfortunately, the Portland Trail Blazers just discovered some bad news. With so much drama around the front office and Damian Lillard’s future, this discovery only adds to the rough season.
After receiving another examination, a CT scan just revealed that guard CJ McCollum is dealing with pneumothorax in his right lung. McCollum originally sustained the injury during Portland’s game against the Boston Celtics last Saturday night.
CJ did not travel south with the team for tomorrow night’s game versus the Golden State Warriors. The Blazers guard will remain in Portland to be further evaluated.
I certainly hope CJ is able to bounce back from this injury as Dame will now be without a consistent scorer in the backcourt.
