Damian Lillard (sore hamstring) is out on Friday against the Nuggets and doubtful for Saturday against the Lakers. With Lillard not suiting up, expect C.J. McCollum to have a nice game. Evan Turner and Shabazz…

C.J. McCollum scored 13 points on 5-of-25 shooting with a triple, four rebounds, four assists and a steal on Monday against the Wizards.
McCollum essentially shot the Blazers out of this game, but he was still a plus-four because of his playmaking abilities. This was just an awful game from the floor for C.J. and he'll be better on the next one.

CJ McCollum made 9-of-15 from the floor, 2-of-3 from the line and 4-of-7 from deep on Saturday to finish with 24 points, two rebounds and two assists.
McCollums' shot was falling much better in this game than in the last one, and he and Damian Lillard actually had the exact same amount of shots and makes. The dynamic duo looks ready to go, and while the lack of production outside of scoring in this one is a bit of a downer, McCollum one of the most sure-fire early-middle round players in fantasy.

CJ McCollum scored 21 points on 6-of-17 shooting with five boards, an assist and three triples against the Lakers on Thursday.
McCollum still struggles to hit his shots in an efficient manner from the field and tonight's line was a bit empty due to the lack of assists, but that's because Nik Stauskas (24 points, 7-of-11 shooting with five triples) took over. Stauskas looked like a world beater against the Lakers' weak outside defense but we'll chalk his performance up as a fluke.

C.J. McCollum scored 21 points in 30 minutes during Friday's 118-115 win over the Kings, adding nine rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
McCollum really picked up the slack with Damian Lillard struggling (seven points, 2-of-10 shooting) and should be the solid early-middle round player he usually is. There's no need to worry about Dame there, either. He's locked and loaded as a borderline first-round play.

C.J. McCollum reportedly received a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection to relieve pain and alleviate swelling in his right knee over the offseason.
The procedure kept McCollum out of basketball activities for nine weeks but he hasn't hit the injury report at all since camp began. He battled "persistent soreness" during the second half of the season but played through it, suiting up in 81 games. For now this won't affect McCollum's fantasy outlook but it will increase his injury risk.

Terry Stotts would like to transition C.J. McCollum away from the lead ball-handler role he's held with the team's bench units, with Seth Curry, Wade Baldwin, Evan Turner and Nik Stauskas named as potential players who could fill that role.
The Blazers have had the luxury of keeping either McCollum or Dame Lillard on the floor at all times recently but it sounds as though they'll want to dial back on McCollum's more-demanding minutes. His fantasy stock shouldn't be overly affected by the news though a small dip in assists could come. Of the potential replacements, Seth Curry is easily the most intriguing as he flirted with standard league value in his last healthy season filling a similar role with Dallas. Don't forget about him this year.
