Collins recently re-fractured his surgically repaired left foot, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Collins underwent a procedure in late December to address a left ankle stress fracture and appeared to have a shot to return late in the 2020-21 campaign after getting his cast removed in early February, but he ultimately missed the entire season after playing in just 11 games in 2019-20. With the Gonzaga product having now suffered yet another significant setback, his availability for the start of the 2021-22 season is in jeopardy. The 10th overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Collins was considered a relatively high-upside prospect after a pair of encouraging seasons to begin his career, but as the injuries continue to pile up, it's difficult to gauge how he'll be valued as he enters free agency this summer. Collins' last appearance in an NBA game came in the Blazers' final seeding game in the Orlando bubble (Aug. 15) prior to the start of the 2020 postseason.
