Blazers big man Zach Collins to have shoulder surgery

Portland Trail Blazers big man Zach Collins will have surgery to repair his injured left shoulder, the team announced Saturday.

A date for the procedure is yet to be determined, and a timeline for his return will be set after the procedure.

Collins injured the shoulder during Sunday's win over the Dallas Mavericks and has not played since.

The third-year player out of Gonzaga started the first three games of the season for Portland, averaging a career-high 9.0 points per game on 47.4% shooting and 42.9% on 3s.
