Collins left Friday’s game vs. San Antonio midway through the third quarter with pain in his right heel and did not return. He underwent an MRI on Saturday, which revealed a right foot strain, the Hawks announced.

The team said that Collins will go through a period of rest that will include treatment and daily monitoring this week and throughout the All-Star break.

The Hawks play at Boston at 2 p.m. Sunday, at home against Cleveland at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and on the road against Orlando at 7 p.m. Wednesday in their final games before the All-Star break. The Hawks’ first game after the break comes on the road against Chicago on Feb. 24.
