Report: Kings’ Collison out indefinitely


VIDEO: Warriors knock off Kings in Sacramento

Just when it looked as if the Sacramento Kings were getting healthier, what with big man DeMarcus Cousins‘ expected to return from a sore Achilles tendon Monday night, things headed the other way for guard Darren Collison. The veteran guard’s left hamstring strain might require more time, according to CSNBayArea.com:

… Collison missed Saturday night’s game with a left hamstring injury. From his courtside seat, he informed CSNBayArea.com that the injury required an MRI and the results were “not good.”

Collison confirmed that he would be out several days at minimum while the team’s medical staff waits to see how his body responds to treatment.

The 28-year-old guard is averaging 15.8 points and 5.2 assists in 30.7 minutes a night. George Karl has praised Collison’s versatility throughout training camp and into the regular season, and even used him in the starting lineup against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.

    While waiting to see the status of the second and third string point guards we should at least consider a 10 day contract with David Stockton.

  2. There are plenty of guards in the NBA looking for a home. They can get the injury exception to look for one; do it quickly, times a wasting in the Western Conference..
