|Cody Zeller: Out 8-to-10 weeks after surgery|
Zeller (knee) underwent surgery Tuesday to address a patellar injury and is expected to miss 8-to-10 weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: The oft-injured center will miss a considerable chunk of time due to a right knee injury that he was previously trying to manage without going under the knife. He's appeared in just 27 games this season and last appeared in more than 60 games in 2016-17. At best, Zeller will return in time to play a handful of games before the regular season ends, but it's not clear if that would even make sense if the Trail Blazers are out of playoff contention. If we've seen the last of Zeller this season, he'll end his first campaign in Portland with averages of 5.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 13.1 minutes.
