Portland Trail Blazers guard/forward Rodney Hood (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's preseason game against the Phoenix Suns. He is dealing with back spasms, so the team is likely just being cautious here. Hood will battle Kent Bazemore for playing time in Portland. He'll be worth a look in deeper leagues, but that's about it for the moment.
Portland Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins (finger) was a full participant for Monday's practice. Head coach Terry Stotts said that Collins will be available for Tuesday's preseason contest. The finger issue isn't anything serious and the Blazers will be cautious if Collins begins to have problems. He's someone worth looking at in the middle of most drafts because he does have a bunch of upside.
Portland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) was able to return to practice on Monday. Whiteside returned to practice after sitting out most of last week, but it's unclear if he'll play in the preseason game on Tuesday. Zach Collins (finger) is expected to play despite his minor injury. Skal Labissiere may see more minutes coming his way if Whiteside doesn't suit up. It doesn't sound like Whiteside will be out long, assuming he does sit out on Tuesday.
Portland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) misses another practice on Saturday. Whiteside tweaked his left ankle during Tuesday's practice and hasn't done any work since then. The Blazers don't believe the injury is serious, but they want to be cautious here. It appears Whiteside is going to be fine after he gets in some more rest.
Portland Trail Blazers center Hassan Whiteside (ankle) missed Thursday's practice, but his injury is not considered serious. Whiteside missed Wednesday's practice as well after tweaking his left ankle. The Blazers and Whiteside consider the issue to be a day-to-day type of thing. Zach Collins will see more time with Whiteside sidelined. Whiteside is a guy worth targeting in the middle of most drafts.
