Portland Trail Blazers All-Star point guard Damian Lillard missed his fourth straight game on Monday night against the Atlanta Hawks due to a hamstring issue. Despite not taking the floor in more than a week, teammate C.J. McCollum is quite confident that Lillard will be on the floor on Tuesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest. McCollum may have much reason behind his comments as Damian Lillard had already stated that he could have taken the floor against the Chicago Bulls, but didn’t want to make his first two games back be back-to-backs that could be too much of a strain on him physically.
