Pacers' Collison expects to play Game 3

BY foxsports • April 19, 2011

Indiana Pacers point guard Darren Collison says he expects to play Thursday in Game 3 against Chicago.

The second-year guard sprained his left ankle Monday night late in the first half of Game 2 when he stumbled into a cameraman after a drive to the basket. He said Tuesday that he can't put much pressure on the ankle.

Pacers interim coach Frank Vogel wasn't as optimistic. He says he's approaching the game as though Collison won't play. A.J. Price would start and veteran T.J. Ford would back him up.

Collison's quickness has caused problems for the Bulls. He had 17 points and nine assists in Game 1.

Chicago leads the series 2-0.
