Pacers G Collison out, could lose starting job
Indiana Pacers point guard Darren Collison will miss Thursday
night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks because of a sore groin,
and his starting job is in jeopardy.
George Hill has been starting in Collison’s place and has
averaged 14.3 points and 5.0 assists during a six-game win streak.
Pacers coach Frank Vogel said Hill has done enough to remain the
starter, but he hasn’t decided who will get the nod if Collison
Collison, who averages 10.6 points and 4.9 assists, played
briefly against Minnesota on Monday, but was inactive against
Philadelphia on Tuesday and is inactive against Milwaukee.
Vogel says he’s not sure Collison can become fully healthy
before the playoffs. He said the team needs both players to be
healthy to be at its best.
