  • 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 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 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 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.
