How do you rehab a shoulder injury during a pandemic? That question is presumably on the forefront of Zach Collins’ thoughts.

The good news is that Trail Blazers forward has continued healing from surgery that repaired an injury he suffered on Oct. 27. Collins told NBC Sports Northwest that he has suffered no setbacks:

It feels really good. Like I said before, I haven’t really had any setbacks in my rehab. From day one it’s all been pretty smooth, it’s just a long process. But it feels great. I’m really happy with where I’m at.

Collins also said that the next step in rehab is to start actually playing basketball. Understandably, that’s not an option at the moment.
