The Atlanta Hawks have 10 players in COVID-19 protocols, with ESPN reporting the additions Sunday of forwards John Collins and Jalen Johnson.

Collins, 24, played 33 minutes in Saturday’s 101-87 loss to the New York Knicks, posting 20 points, eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks.


Collins is averaging 17.6 points and 7.9 rebounds in 32 starts in his fifth season with the Hawks, who drafted him in the first round (19th overall) in 2017.

Johnson, a 20-year-old rookie, contributed four points and seven rebounds in 15 minutes in the Christmas Day loss at Madison Square Garden.


The 20th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft out of Duke, Johnson is averaging 2.2 points, 1.3 rebounds and 5.0 minutes in 10 games off the bench.

The other Hawks in the NBA’s health and safety protocols are All-Star guard Trae Young, Sharife Cooper, Danilo Gallinari, Kevin Huerter, Wes Iwundu, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Onyeka Okongwu and Lou Williams. Center Clint Capela exited the protocols on Saturday.

Atlanta is scheduled to host the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.
