Collison out, Love questionable

Forward Nick Collison, who suffered a concussion Saturday night against Miami when Heat forward Jamaal Magloire’s forearm struck him on the bridge of his nose in the fourth quarter, will sit out for the second consecutive game tonight at Minnesota.

“He’s definitely not playing tonight,” said coach Scott Brooks. “He’s feeling better. We’ll see how he feels tomorrow (Thursday).”

With Collison out, Nenad Krstic played a season-high 38 minutes Monday at Atlanta. Rookie center Byron Mullens played six minutes in the first half. Rookie Serge Ibaka played 24 minutes, grabbing 10 rebounds.

Minnesota forward Kevin Love, who would be second in the league in rebounds (12.3) if he had enough games to qualify, is listed as a game-time decision for the Timberwolves.

Love, battling strep throat, missed the Timberwolves’ overtime win Monday against Philadelphia and practice Tuesday. It was reported Love might be sidelined a week but he attended the Wednesday morning shootaround and might play. Love is averaging 15.2 points, second highest on Minnesota’s roster.
