CJ McCollum's status has been upgraded to "available" for tonight's game vs. Phoenix Suns, the New Orleans Pelicans announced officially.

The shooting guard entered the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocol last Thursday.

McCollum joined the Pelicans in a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he spent the first eight-plus seasons of his NBA career.
