New Orleans Pelicans head coach Willie Green told the media that star guard CJ McCollum is still making his way back to 100% since returning from a non-COVID illness on December 2nd (averaging 6.7 PPG/24.2% FG/12.5% 3-PT in three games).

(via Bally Sports Southwest):

“He’s still kinda recovering from not feeling well. He’s trying to get his rhythm. CJ will be fine. It happened earlier in the season, too, where he had some struggles, but he continues to work. He’s a pro. He’ll continue to come in. I’m not worried about him at all.”
