Spurs player review: Zach Collins was worth the wait

One of the earliest signs that the Spurs were planning a rebuilding year in 2021/22 was the gamble they took on Zach Collins. The oft injured but talented big man got a sizable contract despite it being clear that he’d be out for months and would likely be rusty in his return after a long absence.

Spurs' Zach Collins: Corrals 11 rebounds in start

Collins accumulated seven points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 22 minutes during Saturday's 100-94 loss to the Warriors. Collins was moved into the starting lineup Saturday in place of Jakob Poeltl (back), and he came through with his second double-digit rebound effort over his past four contests. The big man did snap a four-game streak of double-digit scoring performances, however, as he took only five shots from the field.

Spurs' Zach Collins: Records double-double

Collins closed with 18 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 13 rebounds and two assists over 31 minutes during Sunday's 113-92 win over the Trail Blazers. Collins scored in double digits for the fourth time over his last five games, and he fully took advantage of a spot start Sunday with Jakob Poeltl (back) sidelined. Collins should head back to the bench if Poeltl is able to face the Nuggets on Tuesday, though.

Spurs' Zach Collins: Starting in place of Poeltl

Collins is starting Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers. Jakob Poeltl was a late scratch for Sunday's matchup due to lower back tightness, so Collins will make his first start since March 12. Collins has scored in double figures in three of his last four appearances and has averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 19.5 minutes per game during that time.
