Trail Blazers will be without forward Zach Collins (ankle) for Game 1 vs. Lakers

Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins will not play in Game 1 of the team's first-round playoff series against the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night due to left ankle inflammation.

Wenyen Gabriel will start in his place. Collins left the play-in game against Memphis on Saturday with the injury.

A first-round pick out of Gonzaga in 2017, Collins averaged 7.0 points and 6.3 rebounds this season for the Trail Blazers.
