Zach Collins Has Stress Reaction In Ankle

An MRI conducted today on Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins revealed a Malleolar stress reaction in his left ankle, tweets Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. His condition will be re-evaluated in a week.

Collins missed Game 1 of Portland’s playoff series with the Lakers because of what was believed to be inflammation in the ankle. Wenyen Gabriel took his place in the starting lineup and produced four points, three rebounds and three assists in nearly 16 minutes.

The NBA’s restart provided a fresh opportunity for Collins, who missed most of the season after having surgery on his left shoulder. He played in all eight seeding games, averaging 6.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per night.
