Atlanta’s Collier sidelined with bronchitis

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) – Atlanta Hawks center Jason Collier will miss at
least two games with a severe case of bronchitis.

In Atlanta’s season-opening loss at Phoenix on Wednesday, Collier played just
five minutes and finished scoreless.

According to the team, Collier will return to Atlanta and would miss the final
two contests of a West Coast trip. Atlanta is hoping that Collier, who was re-
signed by the team in March, will be ready for the club’s home opener Tuesday.
