Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins has left the Blazers’ play-in game with the Memphis Grizzlies and is questionable to return. Per multiple reports, he is suffering from ankle inflammation.

Collins played just 7 minutes in the first half, scoring 3 points, and did not return to start the second half. Forward Wenyen Gabriel replaced him in the lineup.

The third-year forward has averaged 7.0 points and 6.3 rebounds in 26.4 minutes per game in 11 starts this season. He spent most of the year recovering from shoulder surgery.
