There is no rest for the Trail Blazers even on a non-game day. According to NBC Sports Northwest’s Peter Socotch, reserve big men Meyers Leonard and Caleb Swanigan got tangled up in practice.

This isn’t uncharted territory for Swanigan. A similar blow from the big fella broke teammate Zach Collins’ nose prior to the 2018 Las Vegas Summer League.

The newly-stitched Leonard and the Blazers will return to action on Monday to face the Clippers in Los Angeles.
