The Kings today upgraded the status of Darren Collison from doubtful to questionable for tomorrow's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, the finale of this four game road trip. Collison sat out with stiffness in his left shoulder in Tuesday night's loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
While Collison is listed as questionable, he did spend the day practicing and sounds hopeful that he'll be able to give it a go tomorrow in Memphis.
From Jason Jones earlier today:
Darren Collison (left shoulder) practiced today and will play tomorrow at Memphis barring a setback— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) November 12, 2014
Collison said he couldn't lift his arm yesterday without a lot of pain and discomfort, said he can play through the discomfort level now.— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) November 12, 2014
Darren Collison talking about his shoulder: "Today I feel a little bit of pain but I can tolerate it."— Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) November 12, 2014
Collison has proved to be one of the most important players for the Kings early this season on both ends of the court. Here's hoping that there are no setbacks and that he'll be ready to go tomorrow. If not, he'll almost certainly be available when the Kings return home on Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs.
