Blazers GM Neil Olshey said today that Zach Collins (ankle) won't be ready to play until mid-January.
Collins had a long way to go to reclaim his sleeper pick label from last draft season, but after this news and the signing of Robert Covington he should fall off draft boards altogether. The Blazers will have more than enough length and size with the addition of Covington and the return of Carmelo Anthony, so Collins' path to standard-league value looks grim.
