Lehigh guard and NBA draft hopeful C.J. McCollum is back practicing at full speed three months after suffering a left foot injury that cut short the senior's college career.
The preseason All-American said Friday in a conference call that he resumed normal practice activities last week. McCollum says getting his timing down might have been the biggest initial challenge, but otherwise he's hitting jump shots, ball-handling and even dunking.
McCollum didn't play after Jan. 5, when he broke his left foot during a 59-55 loss at Virginia Commonwealth. He was leading the country in scoring (25.7 points) at the time of the injury.
McCollum says he's received positive feedback about his draft stock, and that he's eager to prove to teams how much he's bounced back.
