Brooklyn Nets vs Atlanta Hawks (By: Miyagi)
Collins returned to action in Hawks' last game where he was on minutes restriction (illness) but that restriction should be over by no thus he is expected to have a normal usage of 30+ minutes.
Now, the Hawks are having some depth issues in Center position as Dedmon is still sidelined (doubtful again but not expected to risk today), Spellman is also sidelined as well as their last resort M.Plumlee and so Len (considering the fact that Collins was also out) was forced to play some extra minutes in his last 4 games and as a result the Hawks decided to sign T.Zeller on a 10-day contract.
If things go as planned and Dedmon misses this one, Zeller will dress up and share the Center position with Len. Yet, none of them is a skilled/ solid rebounder so it comes down to Collins, at least for the defensive rebounds.
Collins is a good rebounder, he already has 25 double-doubles (all with points and rebounds) this season and he won't have a difficult task against the weaker, worse rebounder Kurucs today, so he will also have a decent number of offensive rebounds.
I like Collins to have his 26th double-double of the season today and so I will back him to gather at least 10 rebounds.
