The Trail Blazers announced early Tuesday evening that rookie guard C.J. McCollum would undergo a "non-operative ultrasound procedure" to repair the fifth metatarsal bone in his left foot.

McCollum broke the same bone his senior year at Lehigh and told the media on Oct. 6 he was going to get two outside opinions regarding the foot.

The release sent out by the Blazers says that the procedure is designed to stimulate bone growth.

Head coach Terry Stotts said Tuesday that McCollum had flown "out east" with new Director of Player Health and Performance, Chris Stackpole.

The procedure will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson of the OrthoCarolina Foot and Ankle Institute in Charlotte, N.C.

McCollum is still out indefinitely as a recovery time has not been established.
