Atlanta Hawks rookie forward John Collins has a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder and is expected to miss two to three weeks, league sources told The Vertical.

Collins suffered the injury during the Hawks’ 121-114 home loss to Cleveland on Thursday night and underwent an MRI on Friday that revealed no tear, league sources said.

Collins is a core part of the Hawks’ rebuilding process and has had an impressive start to his career, averaging 11.5 points, 7.1 rebounds and nearly one block in 21 games. He was the 19th overall selection by Atlanta in the NBA draft.

The Hawks are also without starting center Dewayne Dedmon for the next three to six weeks because of a stress reaction in his left tibia. Dedmon, who joined the Hawks on a two-year deal in free agency, has averaged 11.1 points and 7.8 rebounds in 20 games this season.

Mike D’Antoni: Carmelo Anthony ‘a lot better fit’ with Rockets

Houston coach Mike D’Antoni, who walked away from the New York Knicks post because of Carmelo Anthony, now will welcome him onto his Rockets team that needs their sordid past to be, well, just that.

No more hard feelings over their infamous split in March 2012, when D’Antoni was so tired of trying to convince Anthony to play power forward that he resigned with more than a month left in the regular season. No more dissecting how it all went down, as D’Antoni has several times in recent years by sharing that it was Anthony’s ultimatum to Knicks management that inspired his exit.

“Back then, there wasn’t even analytics. I was going by my gut, and he was going by (his) gut, and it’s just, you know, styles clash. And I think now, things have changed and everybody is playing the same way. I think it’s a lot better fit and I think we have a really good chance to be really good.”
