Zach Collins, Pat Connaughton Injured in Game 3 of Summer League, Miss Second Half

New, comments

Portland loses two key players in the same quarter.

Jake Layman dunks but Pat Connaughton suffers an injury.

The Portland Trail Blazers got a twin dose of bad news during Tuesday afternoon’s NBA Summer League contest versus the San Antonio Spurs in Las Vegas, losing first-round pick Zach Collins to a quad contusion and guard Pat Connaughton to a hamstring injury. Both players left the game in the second quarter.

Update: 3:25 PM

Zach Collins’ injury appears to be a thigh contusion, not a knee contusion as earlier speculated.

Connaughton’s issue remains the hamstring.

Collins appeared to re-aggravate the knee that he injured in a collision during Sunday night’s contest against the Boston Celtics.

Connaughton came up limping with a hamstring tweak and went to the locker room soon after.

Both came out of the locker room to sit on the bench for the second half. We will update as necessary.
