  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Flirts with triple-double

    McCollum totaled 23 points (7-18 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, nine assists and one block across 40 minutes during Tuesday's 125-114 win over the Suns.

With McCollum's help, the Pelicans outshot the Suns beyond the arc by almost 20 percentage points. Devin Booker (hamstring) is day-to-day, so McCollum may find more open lanes in Game 3 if Booker were to miss the next matchup.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Scores 25 in 43 minutes

    McCollum finished Sunday's 110-99 loss to the Suns with 25 points (9-25 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, one block and one steal over 43 minutes.

    McCollum's 25 points were a team high on a night when the Suns held the Pelicans to just 37.9 percent shooting as a team, including a 9-of-23 effort from beyond the arc. New Orleans should be able to get more out of Brandon Ingram (18 points, five turnovers in 39 minutes), but McCollum is the player with significantly more postseason experience, so look for him to continue shouldering a major offensive burden as long as New Orleans can manage to stay alive against the NBA's best team.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Gets going in fourth quarter

    McCollum produced 19 points (9-24 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one block in 42 minutes during Friday's 105-101 win over the Clippers.

While his overall numbers weren't as prolific as the first play-in game, his timely scoring was key in New Orleans advancing to its first playoffs since the 2017-18 season. The Pelicans will have to lean heavily on McCollum if they have any chance of pulling off a first-round upset against the Suns.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Not listed on injury report

    McCollum is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Golden State. However, he's only expected to play "a few minutes," according to a since-deleted tweet from his personal Twitter account.

    The Pelicans are holding out several regulars, including Herb Jones, Jonas Valanciunas, Brandon Ingram and Devonte' Graham, but it looks as though McCollum will be active for the regular-season finale. However, he's not expected to play more than a handful of minuets to begin the contest, so he should be avoided in most DFS contests. At this point, the Pelicans are squarely focused on winning Wednesday's do-or-die play-in matchup against the Spurs.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Tough night in loss

    McCollum ended with 16 points (6-17 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-6 FT), one rebound, four assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Saturday's 141-114 loss to the Grizzlies.

    It was McCollum's worst scoring performance since he put up 15 in his Pelicans debut Feb. 10, but it was still enough to lead the team Saturday. The veteran guard also saw his streak of games with multiple steals end at four, but he'll wrap up his regular season Sunday against the Warriors before leading New Orleans into the play-in tournament.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Leads way in rout of former club

    McCollum contributed 23 points (9-19 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 29 minutes during Thursday's 127-94 win over the Trail Blazers.

    The 30-year-old guard got some sweet revenge against the team that traded him earlier this season, leading the Pelicans in scoring in a game they dominated from the second quarter on. McCollum has looked sharp since missing two games in March due to a stint in the COVID-19 protocols, averaging 24.2 points, 5.6 assists, 3.9 boards, 2.7 threes and 1.7 steals over the last 12 games.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Leads Pelicans with 25 points

    McCollum had 25 points (9-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-8 FT), three rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes during Wednesday's 117-107 win over the Trail Blazers.

The star guard struggled from the charity stripe, but he helped fantasy managers who roster him with a 9-for-16 performance from the field. McCollum finishes March with per-game averages of 24.8 points, 6.8 dimes, 4.2 boards and 2.5 three-pointers over the course of the month.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Nursing sprained ankle

    McCollum is questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers with a sprained left ankle, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    McCollum presumably picked up the injury during Saturday's loss to the Spurs, though he was still able to produce 32 points (12-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 35 minutes. Brandon Ingram (hamstring) is expected to return from a 10-game absence Sunday, but the Pelicans may not be at full strength with McCollum and Jonas Valanciunas (foot) both questionable.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Game-high 32 not enough Saturday

    McCollum registered a game-high 32 points (12-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 35 minutes during Saturday's 107-103 loss to the Spurs.

    The two teams featured entirely different philosophies on offense in this one -- while all five Spurs starters, and seven San Antonio players in total, scored in double digits, McCollum was one of only three Pelicans to contribute more than six points. The veteran guard has dropped at least 25 points in four straight games and 20-plus in 10 straight, averaging 26.2 points, 6.9 assists, 4.2 boards, 2.6 threes and 1.0 steals over that latter stretch.

    McCollum finished Thursday's 126-109 victory over the Bulls with 25 points (10-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds, six assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

    The former Trail Blazer continues to thrive with his new club. McCollum has scored at least 20 points in nine straight starts despite missing a couple games in the middle of that stretch while in the COVID-19 protocols, and in 17 contests since joining the Pelicans, he's averaging 26.1 points, 6.6 assists, 4.9 boards. 2.8 threes and 1.2 steals.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Strong shooting night in loss

    McCollum closed Monday's 106-103 loss to the Hornets with 27 points (10-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

    McCollum did his part in this one, finishing with 20-plus points for his eighth straight contest while shooting over 50 percent from the field. He also knocked down three triples and has now converted three or more in four of his last six matchups. It's reasonable to expect the Pelicans to continue to lean heavily on McCollum's scoring attack with less than a month remaining in the regular season.
