CJ McCollum will be in the Blazers’ lineup for the home game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night.

McCollum had been out of action since mid-January, due to a foot injury, and was forced to miss the last 25 games of the Blazers.

“Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum will make his return to the lineup on Tuesday vs. New Orleans. He’s back from a fractured foot,” Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Despite the absence of McCollum, Portland managed to enter the playoff zone in the West and is currently fifth in the standings, tied with the Denver Nuggets, at 22-16.
