Spurs' Zach Collins to undergo surgery on torn right labrum

San Antonio Spurs center Zach Collins suffered a torn labrum in his right shoulder that will require surgery, the team announced Thursday.

Collins suffered the injury in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Detroit Pistons.

With 10:50 left in the third quarter, Collins went up to contest a shot against Pistons center James Wiseman. Collins immediately grabbed at his right arm and exited the game.

The Spurs said Collins dislocated his shoulder and suffered the torn labrum in the process. The team added that he will have surgery in the coming days but is expected to be ready for the 2024-25 season.

Collins signed a two-year extension worth $34.8 million with the Spurs just before the start of the season and began the year as the team's starting center alongside Victor Wembanyama.

Collins moved to a bench role in December but still played in 69 games and started a career-high 29 of those. The 69 games represents the second most for Collins in his seven-year career.

Throughout his time in the NBA, Collins has continually battled injuries, especially during his time with the Portland Trail Blazers. He bounced back last season with 63 games played and came into training camp ready to go for San Antonio in his third season with the team.

Collins averaged 11.2 points and 5.4 rebounds this season. He also hit 58 3-pointers, which was a career high.
