Top John Collins News

  • Hawks' John Collins: Struggles in season-ending loss

    Collins finished Tuesday's 97-94 loss to Miami with seven points (3-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and two rebounds across 26 minutes.

    Collins couldn't make much of an impact during the Round 1 series, though it seemed like he may have been rushed back from finger and foot injuries in the wake of Clint Capela suffering a knee injury during the do-or-die play-in game against the Cavaliers. Collins failed to score more than 13 points in any of the five games against the Heat, and he never crossed the 30-minute threshold.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Starting at center

    Collins will start at center during Tuesday's Game 2 against the Heat, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    After playing 21 minutes in his return during Game 1, Collins will join the starters at center, pushing Onyeka Okongwu to the bench. Collins will presumably see more action Tuesday and will help space the floor for Trae Young.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Double-doubles as starter

    Collins amassed 13 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Tuesday's 115-105 loss to the Heat.

    Collins looked good in Game 1, and it was not a surprise to see him in the starting lineup for this one. While the Hawks had to settle for another loss, the move paid off from a fantasy perspective since Collins recorded his first double-double since March 7. Expect the big man to remain in the starting lineup ahead of Game 3 on Friday at Atlanta.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Efficient output in return

    Collins finished Sunday's 115-91 loss to Miami with 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.

    Collins stepped on the court for the first time after a five-week absence due to finger and foot injuries, and while the rust is to be expected, he still delivered a decent scoring output -- especially considering how much the team struggled on the offensive side of the ball. Don't be surprised if Collins makes his way into the starting lineup for Game 2 of the series, though his role in the upcoming games has yet to be determined. As things stand now, this was clearly a step in the right direction.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Coming off bench in return

    Collins (finger/foot) will be available off the bench Sunday for Game 1 of the Hawks' first-round playoff series with the Heat, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    Even with Clint Capela (knee) sidelined to begin the series, the Hawks won't immediately reinsert Collins to the starting five while he eases back in after a five-week absence due to finger and foot injuries. Bringing Collins off the bench should allow the Hawks to better manage his playing time, though head coach Nate McMillan didn't specify that the big man would have a minutes restriction. If Collins looks good during his time off the bench Sunday, it wouldn't be surprising if he displaced either Onyeka Okongwu or Danilo Gallinari in the starting five for Tuesday's Game 2 contest.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Cleared to return to lineup

    Collins (finger/foot) will be available Sunday for Game 1 of the Hawks' first-round series with the Heat, barring any issues during pregame warmups, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    He'll be making his return to action for the first time since March 11, after the pair of injuries kept him off the court for approximately five weeks. Due to the length of his layoff, Collins may not start and could be on a minutes restriction, making him difficult to trust in DFS contests. Collins' return will likely result in Danilo Gallinari handling a smaller role, though it's possible the former ends up picking up more playing time at center as the Hawks look to compensate for the absence of Clint Capela (knee).

  • Hawks' John Collins: Questionable for Game 1

    Collins (finger, foot) is questionable for Sunday's Game 1 against the Heat, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    This is massive news for the Hawks, as Clint Capela (knee) is out for at least a week and could be out for the whole series. Collins being available would relieve Onyeka Okongwu and Danilo Gallinari from needing to play extremely heavy workloads. Finger and foot injuries have kept Collins out since mid-March. If he manages to return Sunday, he could be on a minutes limit.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Officially out Friday

    Collins (finger, foot) remains out for Friday's game at Cleveland, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    As expected, Collins' absence will continue through the Hawks' second play-in contest. KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reported that Collins did some 4-on-4 work Thursday, but it remains unclear when the big man might be able to return to action. Should the Hawks beat the Cavaliers on Friday and earn the eighth seed in the East, Collins could have an opportunity to return at some point in Round 1.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Won't play Wednesday

    Collins (finger, foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's play-in game against the Hornets, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.

    Hawks head coach Nate McMillan said Tuesday that the forward has been playing 4-on-4, but he won't be rushed back for the matchup against Charlotte. Per Chris Kirschner of The Athletic, Collins is also unlikely to play Friday if the Hawks advance to the next round of the play-in tournament. In his absence, Clint Capela, Danilo Gallinari, De'Andre Hunter and Onyeka Okongwu are expected to shoulder the majority of Atlanta's frontcourt duties, but Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Jalen Johnson and Kevin Knox are also candidates to crack the rotation.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Status remains unclear

    Hawks head coach Nate McMillan said Tuesday that Collins (finger/foot) has been playing 4-on-4, but the team still isn't sure what his status will be for Wednesday's play-in matchup against the Hornets, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    On Monday, Collins said he's "still not sure" if he'll be available, and McMillan said Tuesday that "we'll see" when it comes to him possibly playing Wednesday. Neither of these statements offer any clarity on the situation, but they do suggest that the forward is progressing well and could return to action sooner rather than later. Even if he is ruled available, Collins would likely be limited, as he's played in just four contests since Feb. 11.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Status remains clouded

    The Hawks have not issued an update on Collins' (finger, foot) status ahead of Wednesday's play-in matchup against the Hornets, but the forward told Chris Kirchner of The Athletic on Sunday that he's "still not sure" if he'll be available.

    While on the surface this seems like a fairly positive update from Collins, who missed the final 16 games of the regular season, Kirschner notes that the big man is yet to progress beyond light shooting and light running. Collins went through a pregame workout prior to Sunday's game against the Rockets, but he still had a splint and a bandage on his sprained right middle finger. Collins appeared to be moving well on his strained right foot, but given that he hasn't done any full-contact work in more than a month, his chances to return Wednesday night appear relatively slim. Look for a more definitive update from the Hawks on Tuesday, but for now Collins should be considered doubtful.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Still not running or jumping

    Collins (finger, foot) has yet to return to any running or agility work, Brad Rowland of Locked On Hawks reports.

    Coach Nate McMillan didn't have much to relay when asked about Collins' status Thursday, noting only that he "still isn't doing anything as far as running or jumping." The big man is dealing with a strained right foot, as well as a sprained right ring finger, which have combined to keep him sidelined for the last 10 contests. Based on McMillan's words, it doesn't sound as though Collins is close to returning, so chances are he'll miss at least the Hawks' six remaining regular season games.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Non-surgical foot procedure on tap

    Collins received an anti-inflammatory injection for his sprained right ring finger Thursday and is scheduled to undergo a non-surgical procedure to address his strained right foot within the next couple of days. His status will be updated in 10-to-14 days.

    Collins received a second medical opinion Thursday that confirmed the sprained finger and strained foot, which includes a torn plantar fascia. The 23-year-old should still be considered out indefinitely with the Hawks expected to update his outlook in late March. There's a strong chance Collins is forced to miss the rest of the regular season, and he could also be out for a potential postseason run.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Out indefinitely with two injuries

    Collins (finger, foot) will be sidelined indefinitely due to a sprained right ring finger and torn plantar fascia in his right foot, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Collins had already been ruled out for Friday's game against the Grizzlies, but it appears he will now miss additional time as he tries to recover from injuries that have been causing him pain since mid-February. It's a tough break for the Hawks as they try to lock down a spot in a play-in game ahead of the NBA playoffs. Clint Capela, Danilo Gallinari (biceps) and Onyeka Okongwu will likely continue to shoulder Atlanta's frontcourt duties until Collins is able to return.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Ruled out again Friday

    Collins (finger) has been ruled out of Friday's game against Memphis, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.

    This will be the fourth straight absence for Collins, who continues to battle a sprained finger on his right hand. Collins previously missed time with a foot injury, so Friday will mark his 11th absence in the last 15 contests.

  • Hawks' John Collins: Out again Wednesday

    Collins (finger) has been ruled out for Wednesday's contest against the Hornets.

    Collins is slated to miss a third straight game due to a sprained right finger. Danilo Gallinari, who is probable due to an Achilles issue, will likely draw the start in his place.
