No good news from the Blazers, who provided injury updates to the press after Friday afternoon.

Zach Collins, still in a sling, has been ruled out of Saturday’s game against the 76ers. He was injured in Sunday’s game against the Mavs, and the team says he is getting more tests on his shoulder. Beyond that, there is no update on his condition, nor any timeline for return.

Meanwhile, Hassan Whiteside did not practice with the team due to a sore knee, suffered in a collision with Chris Paul Wednesday night. Late Friday afternoon, he was listed as questionable for Saturday’s game.

If both are sidelined, the only healthy player on Portland’s roster that is taller than 6-foot-9-inches would be Skal Labissière.

Neither player met with the media. Whiteside reportedly chose treatment over press time; Collins was not made available.
