Zach Collins Undergoes Second Ankle Surgery Since September, Out Indefinitely
Portland Trail Blazers forward/center Zach Collins underwent revision ankle surgery on Wednesday to repair a left medial malleolus stress fracture, president of basketball operations Neil Olshey announced.
Collins previously had ankle surgery on Sept. 1 after suffering the injury during Portland’s play-in game against Memphis on Aug. 15 in the Orlando bubble.
The last 14 months have been rough for Collins. On Oct. 27, 2019, the Blazers third game of last season, he injured his shoulder.
Then, he spent the rest of the 2019 regular season rehabbing before joining Portland for their eight seeding games in the NBA Bubble.
As mentioned, Collins then injured his left ankle against the Grizzlies.
Collins is out indefinitely, and the team will update his status “accordingly.”
Wednesday’s surgery was performed by Dr. David Porter at Methodist Sports Medicine in Indianapolis.
