Pelicans guard C.J. McCollum has cleared the league’s health and safety protocols and will play against the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.
McCollum has missed the last two games for New Orleans, and they’re battling for playoff seeding down the stretch of the regular season.
The immediate return of the 30-year-old will likely shift Devonte’ Graham back to the bench.
In 12 games played as a member of the Pelicans, McCollum’s averaged a monster 27.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, and and 6.7 assists per game.
For fantasy managers that have McCollum ahead of the playoffs, this is wonderful news.
