Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins underwent successful surgery today to repair his left labrum, Neil Olshey, Trail president of basketball operations announced.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Evan Ellis at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, Washington.

Collins will begin a treatment and rehabilitation process and will be re-evaluated in approximately four months.

Collins left the game against the Mavericks last week after he injured his left shoulder. 

With 2:01 left in the third quarter, Collins went up for a rebound. All things looked normal until he made contact with Luka Doncic. Collins came down and instantly put his right hand over his left shoulder. 

The Blazers will now move forward with life without Collins and an already depleted front court.
