C.J. McCollum scored 17 points vs. the Nets on Friday, adding four assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

McCollum and Damian Lillard combined to hit 13-of-32 from the field as the Blazers dropped their second straight game. McCollum was coming off a monster 36-point game on Tuesday and should get back to his dominant ways against the Nuggets on Monday. With four games on the schedule in Week 5 and Week 6, his owners are in for a great couple weeks.
Nov 11 - 1:16 AM

C.J. McCollum went off for a season-high 36 points in a 98-97 loss to the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

Damian Lillard couldn't get anything going and had 12 points on 4-of-16 shooting, but McCollum kept the Blazers in this one. He finished 14-of-26 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line, adding two rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes. He's flirting with second-round value in standard 9-category leagues right now and his owners shouldn't expect anything less the rest of the way.
Nov 8 - 1:38 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 23 points with five rebounds, four assists, no turnovers and two 3-pointers against the Clippers on Thursday.

It's tough to find a scorer more consistent than McCollum with all four of his games ranging between 23-28 points with good efficiency in each. He's coming off back-to-back 80-game, 35-mpg seasons with scoring increases in each year, so don't be surprised if he's even better during his age-26 campaign. He'll be an early-round player in standard leagues.
Oct 27 - 1:21 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 26 points on 9-of-18 shooting during Saturday's loss to the Bucks, adding three rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

McCollum was also a perfect 5-of-5 from the charity stripe in this one, giving him a sterling 64.4 true shooting percentage on the evening to accompany his 27.1 usage rate. He's hit the ground running this year, and there's no reason why he won't be able to improve on last year's top-30 campaign in his age-26 season.
Oct 22 - 12:42 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 28 points during a 114-96 win over the Pacers on Friday, adding seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

The Most Improved Player in 2015-16 got even better in 2016-17 with improved scoring and efficiency during his 80 games. McCollum and Damian Lillard continue to make a case they're a top-three backcourt in the NBA and so far the Blazers are batting 1.000 in getting into garbage time. They will get a real test against the Bucks on Saturday, and McCollum looks like a top-25 player once again this year.
Oct 20 - 11:35 PM

Damian Lillard, C.J. McCollum, Moe Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu and Jusuf Nurkic will start against the Pacers on Friday.

C.J. is back after his one-game suspension because he took eight steps on the court during an altercation during the preseason. The Blazers offense was hitting on all cylinders on Wednesday thanks to Pat Connaughton playing his best game and Damian Lillard smashing in PNR. Get McCollum locked and loaded in your lineup.
Oct 20 - 6:22 PM

The NBA has suspended C.J. McCollum for one game for leaving the bench area during an altercation in the Blazers preseason win over Phoenix on Wednesday.

Per the league's statement, the incident occurred with 9:33 remaining in the fourth quarter of Portland’s 113-104 preseason win over the Phoenix Suns on Oct. 11. McCollum will serve the suspension on opening night. Evan Turner will likely start at shooting guard in place of McCollum. Turner will be worth consideration as an affordable DFS option on Wednesday. Pat Connaughton could also see some additional playing time off the bench.
Oct 14 - 1:51 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 15 points with two rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers against the Raptors on Thursday.

The NBA's 2016-17 leader for distance traveled on the court took another step forward last year, and he should have every opportunity to improve for his third straight year. McCollum's numbers did take a slight hit after the break last year, but he should still be able to come close to his 23.0 points per game for the entire season. He's a strong selection at the turn of the second and third rounds of a standard fantasy draft.
Oct 6 - 12:40 AM

C.J. McCollum had one of his worst games of the season in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors, scoring six points on 2-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes.

He failed to score before halftime and didn't hit his first shot until the fourth quarter. It's a bitter ending to his season, especially since he became a star in real life and in fantasy with averages of 23.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 0.9 steals and 2.3 triples on 48.0 percent shooting. He was a top-30 player in standard fantasy leagues and the 25-year-old combo guard will look to take another step forward in 2017-18.
Apr 25 - 1:11 AM

C.J. McCollum scored a team-high 32 points during a 119-113 Game 3 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding six rebounds, two steals and six 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

Damian Lillard was right behind C.J. with 31 points in a tough loss. It looked like Dame and C.J. were going to lead the Blazers to a win with a 17-point lead in the second half, but a Warriors outburst in the third quarter was just too much to overcome. The Blazers will likely have more minutes from Jusuf Nurkic on Monday, but they're in what looks to be an insurmountable 0-3 hole. Hopefully, the Blazers can extend this series on Monday.
Apr 23 - 1:37 AM

C.J. McCollum (ankle) is listed as probable for Game 3 vs. Golden State on Saturday night.

McCollum tweaked his ankle is Game 1 but was listed as probable for Game 2 and was able to suit up. He is fully expected to log his typical 35-plus minutes on Saturday night. McCollum was on fire in Game 1, pouring in 41 points, but crashed back down to earth in Game 2, scoring just 11 points on 4-of-17 shooting. The Blazers need an efficient and effective McCollum to show up on Saturday if they are to have a shot at knocking off the Warriors.
Apr 22 - 9:26 AM

C.J. McCollum (ankle) struggled in 30 minutes on Wednesday, going 4-of-17 from the field for 11 points, one 3-pointer, five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

The postseason has been a tale of two games for McCollum, who was terrific in Game 1 but lousy in a lopsided defeat tonight. McCollum's ankle injury might have played a role but credit is also due to the Warriors' defense, and in particular Klay Thompson. McCollum gets two days to rest before Game 3 in Portland.
Apr 20 - 1:35 AM

C.J. McCollum (right ankle sprain) is being listed as probable for Game 2 against the Warriors on Wednesday.

It's unclear exactly when McCollum tweaked his ankle, but it didn't appear to be an issue at all during his 41-point explosion in Portland's Game 1 loss, and him being listed as probable further suggests that it will be a non-issue moving forward. Check back for official confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Apr 18 - 4:03 PM

C.J. McCollum scored a playoff career-high 41 points during Sunday's Game 1 loss, adding four 3-pointers, eight boards, one assist, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 41 minutes.

This was McCollum's second career 40-plus-point performance, and he became just the eighth Trail Blazer to score at least 40 points in a playoff game. McCollum also got his points very efficiently, going 16-of-28 from the field and 5-of-6 from the charity stripe for a sterling true shooting percentage of 66.9 to accompany his 34.4 usage rate. It'll be interesting to see what the Dubs try to do to slow him down during Game 2, because they had precisely zero answers in this one.
