  • The NBA Injury Report details the slate's key injuries and their betting and DFS impact.
  • In this piece, we'll break down the impact of the injury to Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins.

Friday night’s NBA slate features seven games with injuries and questionable players. We’ll analyze a key one:

  • Chicago Bulls at Atlanta Hawks: 7:30 p.m. ET

Note: The information below is as of 3 p.m. ET. For up-to-the-minute news and analysis, check out our live news feed and follow us on Twitter.

Hawks PF John Collins (illness) is questionable.

Injury background: Collins popped up on the injury report with an illness and is questionable to suit up on Friday.

Coach Lloyd Pierce also stated that Miles Plumlee (knee) is close to returning but has yet to participate in 5-on-5 practice and remains sidelined.

Tonight’s impact: Collins has been exceptional as of late, averaging 41.2 DraftKings points over his last three contests while logging at least 30 minutes in each game. Even after producing 43.5 DraftKings points on Wednesday, his salary remains exactly the same at $7,000.

While the Bulls are league average in Defensive Rating against opposing power forwards this season, Collins went off for a career-high 35 points in the previous matchup. If he’s able to rebound from his flu-like symptoms, he’ll firmly be in play in all formats.
