McCollum's senior year at Lehigh ended when he suffered a Jones fracture, which is a broken bone at the base of the small toe. McCollum had surgery, placing a screw in his foot. Then, in training camp with the Blazers last year, McCollum re-broke the foot at the start of training camp. This time, McCollum opted for a non-surgical ultrasound procedure. "There are methods you can do besides getting surgery, but it's his first break, so I'm sure they'll probably recommend surgery," McCollum said. "Either way, it's a tough injury to recover from, depending on if it's broken through all the way, the placement of the screw. There's a lot of things that go into it, but if they say four to six (weeks), it's probably more like eight to 10." Oregonian

“The chances of it being a long-term problem are very low, assuming it is in fact a stress fracture as indicated. He should be pretty much as good as new, with the surgery done correctly. He should do really well. “Assuming everything heals well, he should be able to ride a stationary bike within a matter of days. Hopefully he won’t get de-conditioned (because he’ll be able to work out), and he should be able to get back to game-type situations at practice and they’ll see how he does.” For The Win

Kevin Durant is set to miss 6-8 weeks due to a Jones fracture in his right foot. A Jones fracture deals with the fifth metatarsal of the foot. Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti issued a quick statement about the injury on Sunday morning: The Big Lead

Coincidentally, I talked with a person close to him Friday who told me nothing has changed. The Wizards have contacted Allen's representatives at Tandem Sports and Entertainment several times, both reported here. The prospect of being a starter again with Beal's absence isn't likely to make Washington any more enticing for Allen. He'll soon be 40. Six teams have actually contacted his reps since he became an unrestricted free agent -- the Wizards, Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Chicago Bulls, Oklahoma City Thunder and .... the Milwaukee Bucks. Yes, the latter is not a mistake. CSNWashington.com

After leaving Friday's game at Dallas, Reggie Jackson has been diagnosed with a right wrist contusion after undergoing further evaluation Saturday in Oklahoma City. Jackson is officially being listed as day-to-day. Jackson’s injury occurred with 9:19 remaining in the third quarter of the Thunder's 118-109 preseason victory over the Mavs. He contorted his body to avoid contact from Mavs forward Al-Farouq Aminu, who met Jackson at the rim to contest a layup attempt. Jackson made the shot, but the angle he took resulted in him landing awkwardly, with his right arm taking the brunt of the impact. Oklahoman
