According to Shams Charania of Yahoo!

Atlanta Hawks forward/center John Collins suffered a left AC joint sprain during the fourth quarter of last night's game vs. Cleveland.

Atlanta selected Collins with the 19th overall pick in June's National Basketball Association draft. The rookie, selected with the No. 19 pick this past summer, is averaging 11.5 points and 7.1 rebounds over 22.9 minutes per outing, with his best single-game performance coming in the form of a 21-point, nine-rebound effort on November 20 against the San Antonio Spurs.

Collins has also showcased solid durability.

The news come only a couple of days after center Dewayne Dedmon was declared out three-to-six weeks with left tibia stress reaction, which would take yet another starter off the lineup for a team that is bound to make waves in his first year in Atlanta. It could also lead to more chances for Ersan Ilyasova and Tyler Cavanaugh as part of Atlanta's frontcourt rotation.
