Collins (ankle) will play Wednesday against the Knicks. No surprise here, as Collins was listed as probable with his status never appearing to be in much jeopardy. Collins is coming off of a 28-point, 11-rebound effort in Monday's 143-138 win over Charlotte.
Collins is expected to play Wednesday against the Knicks despite dealing with a sore left ankle, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Collins saw a heavy workload during Monday's double-overtime win over the Hornets with 28 points (12-13 FG, 4-8 FT), 11 boards and two blocks in 46 minutes, and he apparently picked up the ankle issue along the way. The injury shouldn't impact the 22-year-old's availability for Wednesday's matchup, and he figures to take his usual spot in the starting five.
Collins finished with 28 points (12-13 FG, 4-8 FT), 11 boards and two blocks in 46 minutes during Monday's 143-138 double-overtime win over the Hornets. Collins scored 20 points for the third straight game and the eighth time in his last nine games while helping his team to the double overtime win. He's double-doubled twice in the last three games, which isn't anything new for the star big man, as he's averaging a double-double with 21.6 points and 10.0 boards per game on the season.
Collins (thigh) is no longer on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against Charlotte. The Hawks listed a number of regulars on the report as of Sunday night, but Collins, Jeff Teague, De'Andre Hunter and Kevin Huerter have all been removed. Since the All-Star break, Collins is averaging 24.0 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.6 blocks.
Collins is considered probable for Monday's game against Charlotte due to a bruised right thigh, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports. Collins suffered a bruised thigh in Saturday night's loss to Memphis, but there's not much reason to believe his status in doubt for Monday night. Collins saw 39 minutes Saturday night, finishing with 27 points and eight rebounds.
