Vonleh sustained the injury while playing a pick-up game at the Trail Blazer's practice facility.
Analysis: Vonleh, the No. 9 overall pick in the 2014 draft, started 41 of the 74 games he played for Portland last season, and was a bigger factor late in the season. He averaged 4.4 points and 5.2 rebounds in 2016-17. Any one of a number of players could fill Vonleh's spot in the starting lineup. Al-Farouq Aminu, Ed Davis, Meyers Leonard, Caleb Swanigan and Evan Turner are among the candidates.
