Atlanta Hawks Forward Inching Closer to Return

According to Lauren Williams of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, John Collins could return for the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. 

Collins has been out since the beginning of December, but now things appear to be ready to change on that front. Even if the Hawks decide to rest Collin for that specific contest, it is apparent that his return to the lineup is on the horizon. 

In 22 games this season thus far, Collins has averaged 12.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. It will be intriguing to see if he can heat up once he is officially back in the lineup. Alas, time will tell what happens on that front.
