Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum will miss at least three more games due to the sprained left foot that prevented him from playing in Monday's 125-104 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts said prior to Monday's game that McCollum would be re-evaluated in a week. That would knock him out of Wednesday and Friday games against the Memphis Grizzlies and Sunday's game against the New York Knicks.

McCollum would be unlikely to play against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Jan. 25 but perhaps would have a chance to return against the Houston Rockets on Jan. 28, depending how much progress he makes.

McCollum injured the foot during Saturday's 112-106 home win over the Atlanta Hawks. McCollum is averaging 26.7 points and had scored at least 20 in every game until sustaining the injury. He scored 16 points in 19 minutes before exiting versus the Hawks.

Rodney Hood started in place of McCollum against San Antonio and scored a season-best 21 points.
