Portland Trail Blazers rookie CJ McCollum broke his foot during practice Saturday and is out indefinitely

Terry Stotts initially told the media following practice Saturday that McCollum had sprained his foot and left practice early.

However, the Trail Blazers public relations department later announced via twitter around 4:30 this afternoon that McCollum sustained a fracture of the 5th metatarsal bone. The Trail Blazers announce that a date has not been announced for surgery. This is the same left foot and same bone that McCollum broke during his senior season at Lehigh which also required surgery.

The Trail Blazers added that a prognosis will not be made until after the surgery is done.
