Collins (rest) has been ruled out for Wednesday's summer league matchup with the Pacers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Head coach Lloyd Pierce previously said that he didn't expect Collins to suit up again in the summer league, so his ruling as out Wednesday is merely a formality. Collins proved to be one of the top talents when on the floor this summer and averaged 19.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal across 25.5 minutes in four games.
Collins (rest) won't play during Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
As expected, Collins won't play during Tuesday's game. He's been beating up on less experienced players through four games, averaging 19.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and a combined 1.8 steals/blocks while shooting 37.5 percent from beyond the arc.
Head coach Lloyd Pierce said Sunday that Collins likely will not play again in summer league, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Collins has played in five summer league games for the Hawks and has been an absolute force against the inferior competition. It's not too surprising to see the Hawks' head coach look to shut down Collins, as it seems the second-year player is far too talented to continue participating. They will also want to ensure the former Wake Forest standout is 100 percent healthy for training camp.
Collins (rest) generated 30 points (12-22 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 30 minutes during the Hawks' 91-89 loss to the Knicks in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
The rest day Collins received in the final Utah Summer League contest clearly was what the doctor ordered, as the second-year forward was stellar in Saturday's narrow loss. The 20-year-old was impressive in his 74-game rookie season, averaging 10.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 blocks across 24.1 minutes. Given his NBA experience and first-round talent, Collins is likely to dominate summer league play, laying the foundation for what could be a breakout 2018-19 campaign.
