C.J. McCollum scored a season-high 17 points against the Rockets during a 110-95 loss on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
While his career-high scoring was 19, this was McCollum's best game. He only needed nine attempts from the field to get his 17, but obviously garbage time was a factor. Keep an eye on him in deep leagues and he will have a nice boost in value with any injuries to the starting perimeter guys. Dec 22 - 11:44 PM

C.J. McCollum returned to action on Wednesday with three points, three assists and no turnovers in 14 minutes.

He is not going to get too much playing time while the Blazers are healthy on the outside. McCollum is only worth owning in very deep leagues right now.

C.J. McCollum (finger) is active against the Bucks on Wednesday.

It's unclear if he's going to play, but he won't see much playing time while the Blazers are healthy on the wing. McCollum had a nice offseason, but he won't have much fantasy value.
Dec 17 - 8:51 PM

C.J. MCCollum (finger) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and he will "most likely" be activated for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Even if he's active, there's no guarantee that he'll leave the bench. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation, and usually only sees significant playing time during garbage-time, so he can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Dec 16 - 4:43 PM

C.J. McCollum (finger) has been cleared by doctors to return to practice.

McCollum underwent a round of X-rays Monday night and must have received good news as he's been cleared to participate in full-contact practice on Tuesday. While McCollum could play some time this week, fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on waivers.
Dec 16 - 10:40 AM

CJ McCollum (finger) could return to action this week.

He won't play on Monday, but it sounds like he's got a good chance to return within the week. Fantasy owners can ignore the news since he's a non-factor.
Dec 15 - 1:32 PM

C.J. McCollum (finger) has been cleared to shoot and dribble.

McCollum had been limited with what he could do with his right hand, so this is good news as he recovers from breaking his index finger in three places. The second-year player has been targeting a December 15 return, but won't see enough playing time to make a difference in standard fantasy leagues as he'd only been averaging 13.1 minutes per game prior to his injury.
Dec 9 - 12:21 PM

C.J. McCollum (finger) is listed as out for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

He has now missed three weeks with his broken index finger, and his initial timetable was four weeks so he could return soon. The Blazers haven't provided an update on his injury just yet, but we will watch it closely over the next week. He will likely return to a minor role off of the bench, so owners in standard leagues can feel free to ignore him.
Dec 7 - 10:49 AM

C.J. McCollum (finger) said he broke his index finger in three places.

He is not going to need surgery and he will just keep it in a cast. McCollum is going to miss four weeks and the Blazers will likely lean on Will Barton and Steve Blake a little more. Allen Crabbe could also pick up some minutes, but he'll head back to the bench with Nicolas Batum (knee) set to return on Friday.
Nov 19 - 3:35 PM

C.J. McCollum suffered a fracture to his right index finger during the closing minutes of Monday night's victor over the Pelicans, and he will be out a minimum of four weeks.

McCollum was averaging 5.0 points, 1.1 assists and 1.1 rebounds over 13.1 minutes of action, so this news doesn't have too much fantasy implications. His reserve minutes will likely be dispersed to guys like Steve Blake, Will Barton, and Allen Crabbe, but none of those guys are worth adding in standard leagues.
Nov 18 - 5:10 PM

C.J. McCollum came off the bench to hit 4-of-7 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points and a steal in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

McCollum has played well this season, but was clearly a beneficiary of two things tonight: garbage time in a blowout win, along with the absence of Nicolas Batum, who is out with a knee injury. You've got to be in a pretty deep league to be thinking about using McCollum at this point, but if Batum's injury turns out to be serious, he might be worth a look in some leagues.
Nov 13 - 12:56 AM

C.J. McCollum hit 4-of-8 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, two rebounds and three assists in Thursday's win.

McCollum was great off the pine tonight, but the score was lopsided and this was a typical garbage time performance. Just keep an eye on him.
Nov 7 - 1:26 AM

The Blazers picked up the third-year team option on C.J. McCollum on Monday.

McCollum is going to play backup minutes behind Wesley Matthews, and could also serve as a third-string point guard behind Damian Lillard and Steve Blake. However, he's not likely to average enough minutes for standard league consideration.
Oct 27 - 6:45 PM

C.J. McCollum went scoreless in 14 minutes on Tuesday, while committing three turnovers with zero assists.

Steve Blake wasn't even with the team, which makes this result all the more discouraging. Will Barton had six points and two assists in 12 minutes, but neither he nor McCollum will play enough to deserve a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 22 - 12:37 AM

C.J. McCollum thrived in a surprise start at PG with Damian Lillard (foot) out on Sunday, finishing with 19 points, five 3-pointers, two rebounds, six assists, one steal and two turnovers in 26 minutes.

Steve Blake was initially listed as the starter but coach Terry Stotts decided to keep his second unit intact by giving McCollum a chance to run the offense. The Blazers don't have a third PG on their roster, so McCollum and/or Will Barton may be asked to fill the job. Despite tonight's solid line, McCollum's bench role spoils his value outside of deep leagues.
