Jrue Holiday (ankle) will miss his second game in a row.

Khris Middleton (wrist) is still out.

The San Antonio Spurs have now lost five consecutive games and will be hoping for a win in this one.

Zach Collins was diagnosed with a non-displaced fibula fracture on Tuesday, which will keep him out of commission for two to four weeks.

Collins’ injury was thought to be a lower leg contusion at first, but an MRI on Tuesday revealed that it is far more serious. The 2017 first-round pick has averaged 8.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 1.2 blocks in 17.7 minutes in nine games this season.
