Sacramento, CA ( - Portland Trail Blazers first-round draft pick C.J. McCollum has been activated for Tuesday's tilt against the Sacramento Kings and is expected to make his NBA debut.

McCollum was drafted 10th overall in the 2013 draft by Portland but broke his left foot before the start of the regular season.

The former Lehigh product spent two games with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA's Developmental League getting back into game shape after missing Portland's first 34 games.

"I've been working pretty hard to try and get myself ready to play," said McCollum. "I love this game, I love playing the game."

McCollum averaged 21 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists at the 2013 Las Vegas Summer League, earning an honorable mention tournament nod.
