CJ McCollum played yesterday in Boise, Idaho for the Blazers’ D-League affiliate, the Idaho Stampede.
He played 17 minutes and was very productive. He recorded 13 points, 6 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, and 3 turnovers.
Through his play, any viewer could tell he was rusty. Not playing competitively for about a year will do that to any player. To help shake off the rust, he will play for the Stampede again today.
Sources have told reporters that McCollum can make his Blazers debut as early as this Tuesday (January 7) in Sacramento against the Sacramento Kings.
Inserted below are McCollum’s highlights from the game yesterday in Boise (he is wearing #22):
