Additionally, after further consultation with David W. Altchek, MDco-chief emeritus of the HSS Sports Medicine Institute, it has been determined that McCollum will not require surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. McCollum will undergo an offseason rehabilitation program focused on shoulder stabilization and strengthening.

McCollum is expected to make a full recovery for both injuries prior to the start of training camp.
