After missing more than three weeks because of a collapsed lung, New Orleans Pelicans guard CJ McCollum will make his return to the lineup Wednesday against the Philadelphia 76ers.

After completing the Pelicans' morning shootaround, McCollum gave the green light to make his return to the lineup. Coach Willie Green said McCollum will be on a minutes restriction.

McCollum has averaged 21.7 points and 5.7 assists for the Pelicans, who have gone 5-7 in his absence this month.
