Hawks C Collins to miss 2 weeks



ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks say reserve center Jason Collins will miss the next two weeks with a sprained left elbow.

Collins, the primary backup to Zaza Pachulia with All-Star center Al Horford sidelined the next three months, was injured in Thursday’s home loss to Memphis.

Collins, an 11-year NBA veteran, has started 31 of 81 career games in three seasons with Atlanta. He is averaging 3.8 points and four rebounds this season in 22 minutes per game.

Atlanta hosts Philadelphia on Saturday night. The Hawks have won three of four and are in fifth place in the Eastern Conference at 16-7.
