The Portland Trail Blazers announced that star shooting guard C.J. McCollum has a Pneumothorax (collapsed right lung) and the tweet from the team can be seen embedded below. 

There is no timetable for his return.

The Trail Blazers are already without All-Star point guard Damian Lillard, who is out with an abdominal injury. 

On the season, they are 11-14 in their first 25 games, and after losing in the playoffs in the first round in back-to-back seasons, they also have a first-year head coach, and recently fired their General Manager.  

Right now, the Trail Blazers are just not a good basketball team. 

All anyone can hope for is that McCollum returns back to the court healthy after this huge announcement. 

They will play the Golden State Warriors in San Francisco on Wednesday night.

DeRozan is a four-time All-Star, and in his first season in Chicago, he recently passed Hall of Famer Michael Jordan on a franchise-record list. CLICK HERE.
  • STEPH AND THE WARRIORS ARE ON FIRE: The Golden State Warriors have not made the playoffs in two seasons, but that appears likely to change this season. They are on fire to start the season led by superstar guard Steph Curry and are tied for the best record in the entire NBA. . CLICK HERE.
