C.J. McCollum Eager To Prove He's Healthy, Ready For NBA

C.J. McCollum has received positive feedback about his draft stock, and is eager to prove he’s 100 percent healthy and ready to take his game to the NBA.

"Teams, from what I've heard, are pretty positive about me," McCollum said in his first interview since fracturing the fifth metatarsal in his left foot on Jan. 5. "The biggest thing is they just want to see me healthy. I'm healthy. My X-rays are very, very beautiful. I think that's just the biggest thing; they want to make sure my foot is OK.

"My draft stock is still pretty good right now. It'll be better when I get back on the court and show teams that the injury hasn't fazed me, and I've actually gotten stronger and improved aspects of my game."

McCollum believes the final step of his recovery process is mental.

"You have to be mentally tough," McCollum said. "Physically, you're going to feel fine, but the mental aspect is what makes the difference. ... You have to be invested, have 100% confidence that you can do the job and do it better than you could do it before. I feel fine.

"I think all the other guys who have had this injury have exceeded expectations after the injury, and I think I'll be in a similar position to do so as well."
