Darren Collison Injury Leaves Pacers' Point Guard Listed As Day-To-Day

Darren Collison is listed as day-to-day after spraining his ankle in the second quarter of the Indiana Pacers' Game 2 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Monday. Collison stepped on a cameraman on the baseline after hitting a fast break layup; he collapsed to the ground immediately and hopped to the locker room. Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star reports that Collison attempted to jog on the ankle after halftime in an attempt to get back in the game, but it was too painful.

Collison had eight points and two assists when he left the game. A.J. Price immediately became the team's lead point guard, but quickly crumbled as the Bulls capitalized on the youngster's sloppiness (five turnovers in less than 25 minutes) to erase Indiana's nine-point lead. T.J. Ford also slipped back into action, earning eight minutes of burn and hitting an improbable 60-foot bank shot at the third quarter buzzer to tie the game.

If Collison can't go in Game 3 in Indiana on Thursday, Price will likely get the start, with Ford coming off the bench. For more on the Pacers, visit Indy Cornrows and SB Nation Indiana.
