Hello, unfortunately the heads must be removed to access the lifters on this model. It's either going to be a collapsed lifter or stuck/bent valve that's the problem. I'll post info below for you on head removal. Let me know if I can be of further help.

Valve was moving but not much. Push rod is straight.
What are the odds of cam lobe being damaged?
GMC Mechanic: K. Wiggins, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 months ago

Possible but unlikely, being roller lifter/cam they aren't as hard on cam lobe as the old flat tappets were. More than likely the hydraulic portion of the lifter has collapsed and isn't pumping up.

You can check the cam lift with a dial indicator possibly to verify the lobe isn't damaged once the lifter is out.
