Portland Trail Blazers forward/center Zach Collins underwent a second revision surgery on his left ankle yesterday, to repair a left medial malleolus stress fracture.

The procedure was performed by Dr. Martin J. O’Malley at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS) In New York.

Collins underwent previous ankle surgeries on September 1, 2020, and December 30, 2020.
