C.J. McCollum will replace Chris Bosh in the 3-point contest on Saturday.
The world will get to see why people in Portland call him 3J. McCollum is shooting 39.2 percent from deep this year, including 39.8 percent on pullups and 51.8 percent when he's wide open. He'll be an underdog, but 3J can definitely get it done. Feb 12 - 6:15 PM

C.J. McCollum had a quiet game vs. Houston on Wednesday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-16 shooting with two 3-pointers, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 27 minutes.

He sat out 7:28 during the fourth quarter, which is unusual, as Terry Stotts rolled with Gerald Henderson (32 minutes) and Allen Crabbe (30 minutes) for long stretches tonight. The front-runner for Most Improved Player has fallen below 30 minutes just three times all season, and this is obviously nothing to worry about.
Feb 11 - 1:54 AM

C.J. McCollum scored 16 points with seven rebounds, two assists, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers against the Rockets on Saturday.

His four steals matched his season high in 40 minutes of action. McCollum isn't tearing it up quite as much as he was while Damian Lillard was out earlier in 2016, but he's still sitting pretty as a top-40 player on the year. He has a big lead for Most Improved Player.
Feb 6 - 8:23 PM

The Blazers won their fifth straight game on Tuesday vs. the Bucks due to a 30-point performance by C.J. McCollum.

He was everywhere in this one and added six assists, four boards, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. He did have four turnovers, but he shot 10-of-18 from the field and coach Terry Stotts couldn't take him off the floor even though he finished with five fouls. This was McCollum's fifth career game with 30 or more points and he's still returning top-40 value on the season.

C.J. McCollum recently said that the mid-range jumper is a comfortable part of his game.

"It's been a part of my game for life," he said. "It's tougher to finish in the lane so you've got to find different areas to score efficiently and the mid-range contested shot is a shot a lot of teams will live with...And it's a shot I'm willing to live with as well just because I've gotten so many shots at it and I'm comfortable with it." McCollum has utilized film breakdown to excel from the area, and it's contributed to his epic breakout season with averages of 20.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 2.4 triples on 44.1 percent shooting.
Feb 1 - 9:02 AM

C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard both scored 21 points as the Blazers held off the Wolves on Sunday, though C.J. added only one rebound, one assist, two steals and four turnovers.

McCollum shot 9-of-19 overall but he was 0-of-3 from downtown, snapping a 34-game streak with at least one triple (which trailed only Steph Curry and Kevin Durant). He'll get a new streak started vs. the Bucks on Tuesday, but fantasy owners should be rooting for more overall production -- he shot 42.5 percent in January, with 0.7 steals per game and not a single block to his credit. Expect better in the Blazers' final 33 regular-season games.
Jan 31 - 11:58 PM

C.J. McCollum scored 28 points for the second straight game on Saturday vs. the Lakers, shooting 12-of-21 from the field.

He also added three boards, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He has now scored 25 or more points in three straight games and has helped the Blazers win five out of their last seven games. Check out the link below to see McCollum embarrass Lou Williams.
Jan 24 - 2:01 AM

C.J. McCollum lit up the Hawks for 28 points on 12-of-23 shooting on Wednesday, hitting two 3-pointers with three boards and three assists.

McCollum scored 20+ points three times in his career prior to 2015-16, but he's already hit that mark 20 times this season. He turned the ball over four times tonight but also had two steals, and the key for fantasy owners is that his shot was falling -- he was at just 38.7 percent in January prior to this outburst. He should keep it going in a delectable matchup vs. the Lakers on Saturday.
Jan 21 - 1:36 AM

C.J. McCollum got back on track in Monday's win over the Wizards, scoring 25 points with two boards and two assists in 34 minutes.

He shot 9-of-16 from the field and also matched his regular-season career high with six 3-pointers on 10 attempts. He was shooting just 33.3 percent from the field in his previous four games, so he really needed this performance. McCollum is going to be a beast in the second half of the season.
Jan 18 - 4:42 PM

C.J. McCollum struggled against the 76ers during a 107-89 loss on Saturday, adding twi rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He hasn't been himself since the DNP-CE (clerical error), averaging just 13.4 points, 3.4 boards, 4.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.8 treys on only 33.3 percent from the field in those four. McCollum will get it figured out soon and gets a fun matchup against Brad Beal on Monday.
Jan 16 - 10:10 PM

C.J. McCollum (coach accidentally put him on the inactive list) returned on Friday, scoring 17 points with three rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and one turnover.

Hey, at least his coach circled his name properly here. McCollum's fantasy owners haven't really had any problems inserting him into their lineups because he's a must-start player every night with third-round value on the season.
Jan 9 - 2:02 AM

C.J. McCollum (coach accidentally put him on the inactive list) is expected to start on Friday night against the Warriors.

He was inactive for the strangest reason of the season on Wednesday and he'll be back out there tonight against Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Coach Terry Stotts sure can coach some basketball with terrific halfcourt sets, but he probably wasn't great at Scantron tests growing up.
Jan 8 - 5:11 PM

Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts said it was his fault that C.J. McCollum was inactive on Wednesday night.

In easily the most bizarre situation of the season, McCollum was unable to play against the Clippers on Wednesday because of what Stotts called a clerical error. "I signed the paper without really noticing it," Stotts said. "But it's my fault for not looking at it. Although we caught the error — we thought we caught it in time, but apparently we did not — so CJ was ruled inactive and that's that." Stotts' error aside, McCollum will be back in the lineup for Friday's game against the Warriors and should be active in all fantasy lineups.
Jan 7 - 10:11 AM

C.J. McCollum was mistakenly put on the inactive list by coach Terry Stotts, so he will not play.

This is a weird one. McCollum went through warmups and even the team reporter said McCollum was active and starting. It's possible McCollum can't play because of a clerical error in the lineup sheet. This is easily the strangest situation of the season.
Jan 6 - 10:29 PM

C.J. McCollum is active and is expected to come off the bench on Wednesday.

This is a mess. McCollum has started all of his active games this year, but there was a lot of talk of him being the sixth man. Maybe this is the start of a new role. Regardless, he's still a high-end fantasy asset.
