Collison held out of Thunder training camp

Forward Nick Collison will not participate in the Oklahoma City

Thunder’s training camp because of a bone bruise in his left

knee.

The Thunder announced the decision Tuesday. Oklahoma City plays

its first preseason game Oct. 6 against Charlotte in Fayetteville,

N.C., but the regular season is a month away.

Center Nenad Krstic will also be limited in training camp after

having surgery last week to repair a broken index finger on his

right hand.
