Blazers’ Collins out about 4 months after surgery

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

Collins dislocated his shoulder in the third quarter of a game in Dallas on Oct. 27.

Collins will begin a treatment and rehabilitation process and will be re-evaluated in approximately four months, the team said in a release.

The 21-year-old averaged 9 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists in three games this season.

Portland is already dealing with injuries to center Jusuf Nurkic and forward Pau Gasol that has significantly weakened their frontcourt depth to start the season.
