Well, the Pelicans announced today that McCollum underwent successful surgery for his torn UCL in his right thumb. And it was announced as well that he won't need surgery for his torn labrum.
It is also being reported that McCollum will be fully recovered from both injuries by the start of training camp. This is exactly what you want to hear as a fan of this team.
