Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Healthy, expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) has healed from his injury and is expected to play once the season resumes, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.

Collins dislocated his shoulder during the third game of the season, leaving a gap at power forward that Carmelo Anthony eventually filled. The three-and-D big man gives the Blazers a unique set of choices in terms of lineup configuration.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: 'On right track' with rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins said in a recent interview that he's "on the right track" with his recovery from left shoulder surgery and noted that he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his rehab, Chris Burkhardt of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Before the NBA suspended its season March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic, Collins had been eyeing a potential return during the postseason. Because teams haven't been holding practices during the shutdown, Collins hasn't had the opportunity to test out his shoulder in full-contract drills on the court, but he's likely to do so at some point in May, when clubs are expected to reopen their facilities. If Collins checks out well during his initial workouts, he could be ready to contribute whenever the season resumes.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Still not ready for full clearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Terry Stotts said Monday that while Collins (shoulder) has resumed on-court work, the big man is "not even close to being ready for a full practice," Dwight Jaynes of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Collins has been sidelined since late October after requiring surgery to address a dislocated left shoulder, missing each of the Blazers' last 63 games before the NBA officially suspended its season Wednesday. Though commissioner Adam Silver confirmed Thursday that the league's hiatus is likely to last at least 30 days, Stotts' comment suggest that Collins may not be a lock to be ready to play if the NBA returns to action as early as mid-April. Since Collins was shut down following the Blazers' third game of the season, Carmelo Anthony has taken over as the club's starting power forward.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Tracking toward March return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) said last week that he remains optimistic he'll be cleared to play shortly after being re-evaluated in early March, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports. "There's always going to be that feeling, that competitive itch, you always want to play," Collins said. "Not being able to play sucks, but I'm just trying to make the most of it. Hopefully, I get back out there soon."

After claiming the Trail Blazers' starting power forward job out of the preseason, Collins lasted just three games before dislocating his left shoulder Oct. 27 and requiring surgery. Collins took a small step forward last week by doing limited shooting and dribbling drills for the first time in two and a half months, but he still has multiple hurdles in the recovery process to clear before a return to game action can be considered imminent. After cycling through Mario Hezonja and Nassir Little as replacements in the lineup for Collins, Portland ultimately signed Carmelo Anthony in late November to fill the void on the top unit.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Intends to return in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) said Monday that it's "very realistic" he'll be able to play again this season, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

After undergoing surgery Nov. 5 to repair his left labrum, Collins won't even be re-evaluated until early March before the Trail Blazers decide if he's fit to resume practicing. Collins apparently doesn't view the extended recovery timeline as a concern, though even if he meets his goal of making it back on the court in 2019-20, he likely wouldn't be available for more than a month's worth of games before the playoffs arrive, in a best-case scenario. Even if leagues that have one or two roster spots available for injured players, Collins' lengthy timetable probably doesn't make him a high-priority stash option.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: To be re-evaluated in four months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins underwent surgery on his left labrum and will be re-evaluated in four months, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

This puts Collins out at least until early March, though he'll likely remain sidelined even longer, depending on how fares in rehab. Anthony Tolliver and Mario Hezonja are expected to benefit with Collins out of the picture.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Heading for shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins will undergo surgery to address his dislocated left shoulder, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.

Collins hasn't seen game action since dislocating his left shoulder last Sunday, and it now looks as though he's facing a more extended absence. The 22-year-old should receive an updated recovery timetable following the procedure. Anthony Tolliver has started the last two games in his place and should continue to see increased minutes while Collins remains sidelined.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) will remain out for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers, Peter Socotch of NBCS Southwest reports.

Collins is still in a sling and should be re-evaluated within the next day. With Hassan Whiteside (knee) questionable, the Blazers could be especially thin in the frontcourt versus Philadelphia.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Out at least two games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) is expected to miss at least the next two games, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

Collins underwent an MRI earlier in the day, though the team is still waiting on the results. A timetable for his return should become more clear within the next day or so.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (shoulder) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Spurs.

The Blazers have yet to issue a formal update on Collins, who left Sunday's game with a dislocated shoulder, but it looks as though he'll be in for a multi-game absence. If that's the case, it'll be a major hit to an already-shallow Blazers' frontcourt. Expect Mario Hezonja, Anthony Tolliver and Skal Labissiere to soak up minutes at power forward in Collins' absence.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: To get MRI on shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins will undergo an MRI on his dislocated left shoulder Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Collins went to the locker room late in Sunday night's game and did not return to the contest. The team likely won't offer any sort of return timetable until after the results of the MRI, but Collins could be looking at a multi-game absence -- especially considering the Blazers are back in action Monday night in San Antonio.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Exits game with shoulder injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins left Sunday's game against the Mavericks due to a left shoulder injury and will not return, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Collins suffered the injury in the final quarter of Sunday's contest. The Trail Blazers will likely provide an update following the game, but there is reason for the team to be cautious with Collins given that they will be playing the second game of a back-to-back set Monday.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Solid enough in season opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins produced eight points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds and two blocks in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 108-100 loss to Denver.

Baby steps for Collins who moved into the starting lineup as the Trail Blazers fell to the Nuggets. Despite the lack of production, Collins did play over 30 minutes and managed to block a pair of shot attempts. He was one of the more hyped players leading into the season and those who took a chance on him should be encouraged by what they saw. It may take a few games for him to find his feet and there is certainly no reason to be panicking at this stage.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Solid showing in first-unit return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins registered 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five rebounds and two blocks across 23 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 126-118 preseason win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Collins returned to the starting five after a strong showing off the bench in Portland's most recent preseason game Saturday against the Suns. After two seasons filling a modest role in the frontcourt rotation, Collins is set to open the 2019-20 campaign as the clear-cut starter at power forward following the offseason departure of Al-Farouq Aminu. He's put together a strong preseason that's helped corroborate the considerable improvement he displayed as a shooter last season was no outlier, posting a success rate from the floor of 50.0 percent or better in three of his four exhibitions.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Joins starting five Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins will start Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.

After 16 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two blocks off the bench Saturday against the Suns, Collins will return to the starting lineup Wednesday. The third-year forward, who's Portland's presumptive starter at power forward, could see close to 30 minutes per game this season after averaging just 17.6 last year, making him an intriguing target in the mid-to-late rounds of drafts.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Strong numbers again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins had 16 points (5-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, -7 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, and two blocks in 24 minutes during Saturday's 134-118 preseason loss to Phoenix.

Collins came off the bench Saturday but certainly did nothing to impede his looming starting role. He was excellent on both ends of the floor and as of right now, the preseason hype seems warranted. Collins is likely to see in excess of 30 minutes per night and has a chance to be one of the real breakout candidates for this season. The fact he can play both the four and the five depending on matchups works significantly in his favor, making him a solid player to target around the 100-120 mark.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins will come off the bench Saturday against the Suns, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Coach Terry Stotts will opt to give Anthony Tolliver a look at power forward to start things off Saturday. Across two preseason games, Collins has averaged 25.5 fantasy points in 23.4 minutes.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Contributes across the board
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins tallied 16 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one steal in 23 minutes during Thursday's 104-68 preseason win over Maccabi.

Collins shifted over to the starting center position with Hassan Whiteside resting. This allowed Collins to play closer to the basket on both ends of the floor as evidenced by his increased block numbers and lack of three-point attempts. Collins is continuing to be a nice target late in drafts if you need cheap big-man stats. He has the ability to play both the four and the five which certainly helps his overall fantasy value.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Plays team-high 24 minutes Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins finished with 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt), and six rebounds in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 105-94 preseason loss to the Nuggets.

Collins, who had been struggling with a finger injury, scored 10 points in 24 minutes Tuesday. While the numbers were far from spectacular, the fact he was on the floor shows he is ready to go for the regular season. He appears locked in as the starting power forward, playing alongside Hassan Whiteside. He has been one of the more hyped players this draft season although managers may want to temper their expectations somewhat. His block numbers could take a hit as he moves away from the basket. Whiteside is also a high volume rebounder and could impact that facet of Collins' game. He remains a player to target after 100 and could exceed that mark if everything falls right.

Trail Blazers' Zach Collins: Available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Collins (finger) is expected to be available for Tuesday's preseason game against Denver after being removed from the injury report, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Collins has been slowed by a middle finger injury since Friday, but after returning to practice Monday, he's been taken off the injury report. He's expected to see some run Tuesday as a result.
