    Hassan Whiteside put up a strong double-double on Thursday with 18 points, 16 rebounds and four blocked shots as the Blazers fell 106-100 to the Pacers.

    Whiteside has rebounded and blocked his way to an unlikely top-10 fantasy season and at this point, that's mostly sustainable especially with Jusuf Nurkic and Zach Collins with uncertain timelines. Keep rolling Whiteside out there.

    Zach Collins (labrum surgery) did weight training workout Wednesday and is scheduled to do some on-court work Thursday.

    Collins suffered the injury in the third game of the season after locking down a consistent starting role for the first time of his career. He will likely not come back in time to make a fantasy impact this season but is a name to watch heading into next season.

    Zach Collins (labrum surgery) participated in solo workouts with both arms while also getting some shots up during Tuesday's practice.

    Collins came into the season with some hype as the unquestioned starting PF for the Blazers before injuring his shoulder in the third game of the season. Collins is trying to get back before the season ends, but even if he does, there will be a few more options to battle minutes for than there was the last time he was healthy. He isn't likely to have an impact in fantasy leagues this season.

    Zach Collins thinks he’ll be able to return this season despite undergoing left shoulder surgery last week.

    Collins will soon begin treatment and a long rehabilitation process, while he is expected to be re-evaluated in approximately four months. There is clearly no need to stash him in redraft leagues and the Blazers will continue to rely on Anthony Tolliver, Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere.

    As relayed by Joe Freeman of the Oregonian, the Blazers are standing pat and are not looking to add another big, despite injuries to center Jusuf Nurkic and power forward Zach Collins.

    Collins underwent shoulder surgery and is expected to miss about four months while there is no telling when Nurkic might return, as he is still rehabbing injuries to his left tibia and fibula. The Blazers will continue to lean on Anthony Tolliver, Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere, but neither one of them is a consistent fantasy option right now.

    Zach Collins (torn labrum surgery) will be re-evaluated in four months after undergoing surgery to repair his labrum.

    This is a significant blow to fantasy owners and the Blazers' frontcourt. Collins can be dropped in all-sized leagues with a best-case scenario being a March return. Anthony Tolliver, Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere will continue to soak up the extra minutes until one separates themselves from the pack. With Pau Gasol and Jusuf Nurkic also out, the Blazers will likely be looking to acquire a big man on the trade market.

    Zach Collins will have surgery to address his dislocated shoulder and will be out indefinitely.

    Collins will be out for a long time and is now officially a drop candidate in standard leagues, especially in ones without an IL slot.

    Zach Collins (left shoulder) will not play on Saturday and is undergoing further tests on his shoulder.

    In short, the Blazers don't have a timeline. In the meantime we'll see more of Anthony Tolliver, Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere, plus more small-ball lineups. There's no add in standard leagues here but Tolliver's the steadiest value as a pure 3-point specialist, while Hezonja has the upside if he can ever get it together. Skal's upside is higher than Tolliver's but his floor is also far lower.

    Anthony Tolliver will start once again on Wednesday vs the Thunder replacing the injured Zach Collins (dislocated left shoulder).

    Tolliver is not worth owning in fantasy lineups despite getting the start as his stat set is limited to his low usage rate (career 13.7%). Tolliver is only worth looking at in the short term as a low-priced DFS play although there are a plethora of higher upside players on Wednesday's 11-game card. Mario Hezonja has higher upside and he will be coming off the bench to replace Tolliver tonight.

    Zach Collins (dislocated left shoulder) will miss Wednesday's tilt against the Thunder.

    This was the expectation after Collins's shoulder popped out against the Mavs on Sunday. Anthony Tolliver got the start on Monday while Mario Hezonja and Skal Labissiere will also get additional run. Hezonja is a better matchup against Danilo Gallinari and may find himself in the starting lineup. He makes for an interesting punt play in DFS.

    Zach Collins will miss Monday's game vs. the Spurs with a dislocated left shoulder and is set to undergo an MRI on Monday.

    On the positive side, Collins did say that the shoulder popped back in cleanly. The MRI will be the decider on how serious an injury this is. If you're looking for a replacement consider adding Mario Herzonja who was called upon tonight in Collins' absence.

    Updating a previous item, Zach Collins (left shoulder injury) will not return to the matchup between the Blazers and Mavs on Sunday.

    As was expected based on how it looked live. We can only hope that it was not as bad as it looked for Collins. We will see what further tests reveal regarding the left shoulder injury

    Zach Collins exited in the 3rd quarter of the Blazers-Mavs game holding his left shoulder on Sunday.

    The injury did not look good. We will have to see what the tests show, but the injury could very well keep Collins out for a significant chunk of time. Initial reactions were that it could be a dislocated left shoulder. If Collins is out it will open up more minutes for Hassan Whiteside, Anthony Tolliver and Skal Labissiere.

    Zach Collins logged 31 minutes and scored eight points on 4-of-9 shooting with five rebounds and two blocks against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Collins didn't have the sexiest line here, but the minutes are there and the blocks came as well. Hold onto him as he has the whole season to get better and the stat set is just too good to let go on the wire.

    Zach Collins delivered 13 points, 11 rebounds and a 3-pointer on Thursday but shot 5-of-12 from the field and committed six turnovers.

    Collins was tasked with a heavy load tonight as most of Portland's regulars got either the full night off or very limited minutes, and it was a mixed bag of a performance. Although Collins is likely to start for the Blazers this season, we'd like to see more out of him as a shot-blocker and shooter before endorsing him as more than a late-round flier in standard leagues. Skal Labissiere got some extra run with Hassan Whiteside absent tonight and produced 12 points, five rebounds, a steal and a block but he's only a handcuff in extremely deep formats.
