Blazers' Collins to miss at least 4 months

Zach Collins out 4 months after shoulder surgery

Zach Collins out 4 months after shoulder surgery

Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins will miss around four months after undergoing surgery to fix his left labrum, the team announced on Tuesday.

Collins, 21, dislocated his left shoulder at the 2:01 mark of the third quarter in Portland's 121-119 victory at Dallas on October 27. The surgery also repaired damage to his labrum. The third-year big was poised for a breakout season after joining the starting rotation, but is now expected to "be re-evaluated in four months", according to the Blazers' press release.

In three games, Collins - the No. 10 overall pick in the 2017 National Basketball Association draft - averaged nine points and four rebounds.

Collins averaged 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 17.6 minutes last season, appearing in 77 games from the bank.

Assuming the timeline for his recovery holds up, then there is a chance Collins could play again this season if Portland makes the playoffs.
