Jazz F John Collins (head) exits game vs. Wolves

john collins

Utah forward John Collins exited the Jazz’s Monday game against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the third quarter due to a head contusion.

Collins was the victim of a vicious dunk by Minnesota star Anthony Edwards with 5:29 remaining in the third. He went up for a block when Edwards took flight, but the latter elevated well above Collins’ outstretched arm, throwing down a right-handed tomahawk slam.

When Edwards was above the rim, his left forearm appeared to hit Collins in the face, and Collins fell to the floor after the play.

Collins was evaluated for a concussion, but The Athletic reported following the game that it was just a bruise.

Prior to exiting, Collins had 11 points and six rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

Collins, 26, has averaged 14.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.9 blocks across 63 games (61 starts) this season, his first with Utah following six with the Atlanta Hawks.

The Timberwolves came away with a 114-104 win. Edwards finished with a game-high 32 points.
