Trail Blazers Rookie McCollum Out After Surgery

We've unfortunately blogged about C. J. McCollum in the past, and we always hate having repeat blog posts
on athletes. 
McCollum graced our blog pages in the winter when he broke the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot and had to have surgery on the injury. He was expected to be out 8-10 weeks, but he never returned to play with Lehigh.
McCollum was the 10th pick in the 2013 draft and was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers.
McCollum broke his foot in practice on Saturday, the same injury and the same foot, and will have surgery again to repair the fracture. The team has not set a timetable for his return as his surgery has not been scheduled yet.
As a senior the 6-foot-4 guard averaged 23.9 points in 12 games and at the Las Vegas Summer League he averaged 21 points (on 36.6% shooting) in five games for Portland.
McCollum faces stiff competition in the backcourt, which includes reigning Rookie of the Year Damian Lillard and veterans Wes Matthews and Mo Williams.
