Injured Atlanta Hawks center Jason Collins had his injured elbow examined by his doctor today but the injury still hasn't healed according to coach Larry Drew.
#Hawks C Jason Collins (elbow) saw doc today. Drew says he's still not healed. Didn't commit to another 10-day for Dampier— Michael Cunningham (@ajchawks) February 16, 2012
Atlanta signed center Erick Dampier to a 10-day contract to add depth and size to its front court for the five-game road trip. Dampier played just over 16 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Los Angeles Lakers and did acceptable work against Andrew Bynum.
Although Drew didn't commit to Dampier for another contract it is likely that the Hawks will offer another 10-day deal to Dampier once his current deal runs out if Collins is still not ready to return from injury.
