CJ McCollum is close to his return to action, as he has been cleared for contact practice.

McCollum has been sidelined since mid-January, due to a fractured left foot, and hasn’t played since then.

“Portland guard CJ McCollum continues to recover from a left mid-foot fracture and has been cleared for contact practice, it was announced today by Neil Olshey, Trail Blazers president of basketball operations,” NBA.com reports.

However, the Blazers didn’t give a timetable for McCollum’s return to the floor, which will take place after the All-Star break (March 5-9).
