Portland Trail Blazers F-C Zach Collins got a rough start to Summer League, 2018 as teammate Caleb Swanigan broke Collins’ nose near the end of a practice session in Las Vegas. The Blazers’ Summer League schedule commences Saturday as they face the Utah Jazz. Collins is still expected to play.
Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers had the report today.
Caleb Swanigan broke Zach Colins’ nose on the last play of yesterday’s practice, so he’s not doing contact but plans to play on Saturday— Casey Holdahl (@CHold) July 4, 2018
Joe Freeman of The Oregonian augments.
Zach Collins suffered a broken nose when he collided with Caleb Swanigan at the end of Tuesday’s summer league practice. The Blazers are holding him out of contact portions of practice the rest of the week, but he said he’ll play in Las Vegas.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) July 4, 2018
After practice, Collins slipped on a black face mask and dived into an individual workout with Blazers' coaches. Looks like he might have to wear that in Las Vegas.— Joe Freeman (@BlazerFreeman) July 4, 2018
