After missing the entire season due to a foot fracture, Portland Trail Blazers’ big man Zach Collins has refractured his foot, per Shams Charania of the Athletic. Collins injured his left foot during a play-in game against the Memphis Grizzlies in the Orlando bubble. After undergoing surgery in the offseason for the hairline medial malleolus stress fracture in his left ankle, Collins had to have a second surgery to revise the previous procedure after a setback in rehab. It was hoped that Collins would be able to return to the court if the Blazers made a deep run into the playoffs.

Collins missed most of the 2019-20 season due to an injury to his left shoulder, which he had surgery to repair. He only played in 11 games that season.

Collins is a free agent this summer. The Blazers drafted Collins in 2017 with the tenth pick in the draft.

UPDATE: Collins has undergone a second revision surgery to repair the fracture, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.
