Already without center Al Horford for an extended period, the Atlanta Hawks have suffered another blow to their frontcourt.

Hawks center Jason Collins, who suffered a sprained left elbow during Thursday’s game against Memphis, will miss a minimum of two weeks of action, according to Head Athletic Trainer Wally Blase. Collins will be re-evaluated at that time.

Even with Horford out, Collins hasn’t played much. For the season he’s averaging just 1.0 points and 1.6 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game.

Still, the Hawks would rather have him around.

At 16-7, the Hawks are currently tied with the Philadelphia 76ers for the 4th best record in the Eastern conference.
