Hawks center Jason Collins will miss another 2-4 weeks with a torn ligament in his elbow after having an MRI exam earlier this week. Collins has been out since suffering the injury on February 2 against Memphis and will keep his arm in a brace for at least the near future.

"They showed me the MRI on the screen and the severity of the tear and highly recommended I stay in this brace so I can get back to the court as quickly as possible."

Atlanta has been hammered by injury at the center position the entire season losing Al Horford and now Collins. Zaza Pachulia has taken over the starters position and rookie power forward Ivan Johnson has gotten the bulk of minutes as the backup.
