Darren Collison (knee) to miss at least another week

The Pacers will be without their starting point guard for at least another week. Darren Collison remains sidelined after having his left knee scoped two weeks ago (Feb. 6) at OrthoIndy Hospital.

“Darren did work during the break but he will not be available for the next few games,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan shared Wednesday after their first practice post All-Star break. “We’re probably looking at least another week or so.”

This is not a surprise and nothing to be concerned about, at least not yet. On Tuesday (Feb. 27) he will be three months removed from surgery but don’t expect for him to return to game action until the team returns from a four-game road trip in another week.

Collison, like Glenn Robinson III, spent the All-Star break in Phoenix, Arizona. Why Phoenix? That’s where the team’s lead physical therapist, Dan Dyrek, was and they wanted to rehab together. The Pacers’ training staff of Josh Corbeil and Carl Eaton served as trainers at the All-Star game for the first time of their careers.

The Phoenix Suns allowed for the Pacers players to use their facilities.

Collison, who is 30, is having an underrated season. He’s avearging 12.8 points and 5.3 assists per game. On top of that, he is shooting 49.5 percent from the field, 43.2 percent from range, and 89.7 percent at the free throw line … flirting to be a member of the 50-40-90 club.
