|Collins has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans due to rest purposes, Ty Jager of Fansided's Air Alamo reports.|
The Scoop:Collins hasn't played in both halves of back-to-back sets in recent weeks, and he'll be one of several Spurs held out for Tuesday's matchup. Sandro Mamukelashvili should see increased run for San Antonio, while it wouldn't be surprising to see Collins back in action for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee. Mar 20 10:52 ET -
|Zach Collins: Continues strong run of performances|
Collins finished Sunday's 126-118 win over the Hawks with 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks across 31 minutes.
The Scoop: Collins is in the midst of his best run of production of the season; he's now averaging 22.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 3.0 three-pointers, 1.5 blocks and 1.0 steals on 56.1 percent shooting from the field and 100 percent shooting from the free-throw line over his last four outings. In between those games, he sat out the second half of a back-to-back set Thursday against Dallas, and he could be at risk of sitting at least once during the Spurs' upcoming four-game week as the team continues to rest its top players liberally as the season winds down. San Antonio opens the week with a back-to-back set Tuesday in New Orleans and Wednesday in Milwaukee, so Collins could be in line to rest for one of those contests.

He's scored at least 20 points in three straight contests, averaging 24.0 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in 31.3 minutes during that stretch.

The Scoop: Collins is dealing with a right biceps contusion, and while it doesn't sound like a serious injury, the Spurs are taking a conservative approach with one of their starters. He's been productive as a starter, putting up 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds across 29.1 minutes per game since becoming a starter after the trade deadline (13 games).
